When knives and premium materials mix, that’s often a recipe for an expensive piece of gear. The moment the spec sheet lists things like S35VN, damascus, carbon fiber, and even micarta, that’s often extra digits added to a price tag. But CIVIVI have made a name for themselves bucking the trend and offering tremendous value with their knives. The Pintail is the latest knife in their stable to give you a premium fit, finish, and style, all while keeping the price within reach for most EDCers.

The steel core of the Pintail is its 2.98" S35VN blade. It’s a popular choice for high-end EDC blades thanks to its superior edge retention, corrosion resistance and sharpenability, and not the first time it’s made an appearance in CIVIVI’s catalog, notably in their 2020 standout model the Elementum. For the Pintail, it’s kept under the sweet spot of 3" for EDC, and features a sweeping drop point design with a bold swedge on top as a visual accent. Deployment is via a flipper tab or its ambidextrous thumb studs, with a stainless steel liner lock providing lockup during duty.

The Pintail’s handles come in three micarta colors/variants that offer a natural, comfortable grip, along with a carbon fiber overlay on black G-10 and Cuibourtia wood options that pair with their two damascus models. No matter which you pick, the 6.92“ overall length keeps the Pintail compact in your pocket. A reversible clip maintains its ambidextrous use, with a lanyard hole on its backspacer adding an additional carry or customization option.

No matter how you cut it, the CIVIVI Pintail is a fantastic option for your next EDC knife. Pick out the right variant for you at the link below.
