Civivi Elementum Button Lock C2103B

Sale priceR 1,569.00


The original Elementum was a no-frills, straight down-to-business utility folding knife. It was a bit too compact to be used for self-defense but many of its design features paved the way for it to be an excellent EDC blade, one of the best around, and CIVIVI's best in our opinions. This was mainly thanks to the thin, ergonomic handle with no hots spots during use and a very simple utilitarian design. The drop point blade transitioned into an ergonomic handle that seemed to melt into the hand while the textured scales provided ample traction and the deep carry clip kept it securely attached to your pocket. The Elementum was designed for easy carry but some wished it was a little larger and more capable as a tactical blade...enter the Button Lock Elementum.

For this design, CIVIVI not only changed up the lock type but also went with Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel for the blade and lengthened the design about an inch overall. This makes for a completely different knife, in the same footprint that we all know and love, but this one is just downright better. The Sandvik blade will take a razor-sharp edge and provides excellent stainless properties making this a great outdoorsman's knife. The pocket clip is now reversible for left-handed users, however, the button lock still favors righties. The lanyard post is now hidden on the back spacer - which is an excellent design choice, and the only thing that might make it better is a flipper tab. The Button Lock Elementum is ready for all-day use, tactical scenarios, and the outdoors while remaining one of the best, most capable knives at this price point.

Brilliant little pocket knife for EDC

The push button takes some getting used to if you haven’t used one before. Great little blade. Nice profile and size. Fits inside your pocket without taking too much space. The build quality is very good. Should have purchased one a long time ago.

Civivi Elementum button lock

My first Civivi knife and it's great. It cost more than I've indulged on a knife before, but really worth it in my humbled opinion. I'm really impressed with the quality, feel and that the steel is a bit more premium than any other knife I have. As commented by others, an additional flipper or stud opening would have been nice, but I like that the lack of it makes it somewhat unique.
The Knife guy's service, prices and prompt delivery was on point and I look forward to another purchase.

Civivi Elementum Button Lock C2103B

First Civivi knife I have purchased.
Being made by WE knives I knew the build quality would be good.

I prefer a bigger knife with a thicker blade but I am pleasantly surprised with the functionality of this little champ.

Edge retention is not great but overall I am happy.

The fidget factor of this knife makes it an awesome addition.
Would definitely buy again.
