The Chinese brand Civivi continues to introduce new folding pocket models to the market in its main everyday collection. A few weeks later, after the announcement of the Asticus C2002 series, the official website of another series appeared on the manufacturer’s website — Exarch C2003, which already has four design options, including a premium version made of Damascus steel, and with combined overlays of G10 and carbon polymer.
The new line is almost entirely based on the previously presented Chronic C917 series, with the exception of the blade geometry, the overall dimensions and materials used are identical. Folding blade with a length of about 82 mm is made of 3 mm Chinese D2 tool steel with a hardness in the range of 59-61 HRC. To remove the blade, there is only a front flipper, and the fixation, already traditionally Civivi, is carried out with a steel Liner-Lock type lock.
The full length of the open knife reaches 186 mm, the length of the handle is slightly more than 104 mm, and its thickness does not exceed 12 mm. The handle is made of G10 composite spacer steel liners and textured grips of the same material. The premium Damascus steel version uses a G10 spacer and G10 overlays with a carbon polymer outer layer. The design of the handle provides for a removable steel clip that can be installed in two positions.
New folding knives of the Civivi Exarch C2003 series have already appeared in the online stores of the main dealers, including those with international delivery. Base models are priced at $58, while the Exarch C2003DS-1 version, with a Damascus steel blade, will cost $95.
