It’s hard not to love the Elementum. It’s harder not to like the Button Lock Elementum! And now, the best of the Elementum folders in one Civivi Cogent!! If that is not clear enough. I like Clip Point blade profile with a bit of a belly for good cutting and piercing. There are other models with half-serrated blade but I prefer a straight edge one and only if the blade comes with a satin finish.
The G10 scales have grooves that add to the aesthetics of the handle with 3-watchful eyelets. It looks great with finger choil (finger grooves) for choke-up position with the flipper tab functioning like a finger guard.
Strike 1 .. Yes (Flipper Tab)
Strike 2 .. Yes (Button Lock)
Strike 3 .. (???????????)
Why 11 question marks? Well, the thumb Studs are missing .. 3 cross-hatch lines mean we should get a flipper tab, button lock and a thumb stud, right? Well, one can only hope. Anyways, I like Civivi and I must say thank you again for bringing out awesome design and improvements with high-quality blades at a price point that doesn’t break the bank.
Do you like your scales in Black? What about Burgundy? Jade? Green Micarta or like me Purple. And what about serration? Or plain edge. These are the things you can expect from Civivi, all manner of designs and colors! And did I mentioned about the Damascus blade? A flipper and a Button Lock? Civivi let’s do something great and add the ambidextrous thumb studs and that will be totally awesome!! Here are the specs from Civivi Cogent 3.47″ Sandvik 14C28N Purple G10 Folding Knife C20038D-2:
