01. CIVIVI Mini Praxis

Top 10 EDC knives by CIVIVI to gift that enhance your outdoor adventures

CIVIVI’s Mini Praxis knife is a compact powerhouse that draws inspiration from its larger counterpart, the Praxis. With a 2.98-inch D2 steel drop-point blade, it balances strength and sharpness. The wide G10 handle offers excellent grip, supported by a skeletonized stainless steel liner for added stability without excess weight. Remarkably, the Mini Praxis comes at an affordable price point, making it accessible to a broad audience. Engineered as a reliable workhorse, this pocket-sized gem offers blade options in both D2 steel and stunning Damascus steel, known for its marbling patterns. The handle choices include G10, translucent Ultem, and the luxurious Guibourtia Wood for the Damascus variant. The blade measures just under 3 inches, while the overall design prioritizes compactness for everyday carry (EDC). Weighing a mere 2.77 ounces (78.5 grams) and equipped with a practical pocket clip, it ensures easy and discreet portability.

The CIVIVI Baby Banter excels as an everyday carry (EDC) knife, combining compact design and practicality for effortless portability. Its petite 59mm (2.34 inch) blade is surprisingly versatile, thanks to the drop-point shape, suitable for various tasks indoors, outdoors, or in tactical situations. Crafted from durable Nitro-V steel with a hardness rating of up to 60HRC, the blade ensures long-lasting sharpness. The full-sized handle, made from G10, offers a comfortable and secure grip while remaining lightweight and rugged.

What we like

  • Small and powerful, like dynamite
  • Nitro-V Steel is much tougher than D2 Steel

What we dislike

  • It’s smaller than the Mini Praxis, but double the price because of that Nitro-V Blade

03. CIVIVI Qubit

Top 10 EDC knives by CIVIVI to gift that enhance your outdoor adventures

Designed for those who appreciate efficiency in a small package, this unassuming knife boasts a clever feature – an integrated bottle opener discreetly hidden within the closed blade. Unfold the Qubit, and you’ll discover a classic drop-point blade, now crafted from Swedish 14C28N Steel. This choice of steel ensures exceptional resistance to corrosion, chipping, and everyday wear and tear. The Qubit also offers the convenience of a button-lock mechanism for quick and secure closure. Its aluminum handle adds both heft and maneuverability, enhancing not only functionality but also the knife’s all-metal aesthetic appeal.

What we like

  • The integrated bottle opener makes the Qubit a jack of all trades

What we dislike

  • At 80 grams (2.82 ounces) some small-knife cravers may find the Qubit a tad too heavy

04. CIVIVI StellarQuill Pen & Button Lock Elementum II Knife Combo Pack

Top 10 EDC knives by CIVIVI to gift that enhance your outdoor adventures

Although well known for their knife craftsmanship, CIVIVI also has a reputation for stepping out of its comfort zone ever so often. By which I mean that if its audience demands it, they’ll redesign one of their best knives with a new feature, like the Elementum II which now has a button lock. Heck, they’ll even design pens if there’s enough buzz from the fan base. The StellarQuill Pen and Button Lock Elementum II Knife Combo Pack are a perfect culmination of this, giving you an updated crowd-favorite pocket folder, along with a compact all-metal ballpoint pen. The Elementum II retains its modern classic status with a beloved drop-point blade, now made from Nitro-V Steel. The most notable detail is the absence of the liner-lock from the previous model, replaced by a tactile button-lock mechanism that most enthusiasts will love.

Click Here to Buy Now: $76.50 $90 (Use coupon code “yanko15” to get 15% off). Hurry, deal ends in 48 hours!

Why is it noteworthy?

Dedicated patrons get a special-edition version of the Elementum II with an ivory-colored G10 handle and bright red liner on the inside. The knife is accompanied by CIVIVI’s StellarQuill pen, a precisely machined piece of stationery made from aerospace-grade aluminum that’s perfectly sized to slide right into your pocket. It even comes with a lanyard hole to string into your keychain or a lanyard.

What we like

  • The button-lock and caged ceramic ball-bearing allow you to easily deploy that gorgeous Nitro-V blade
  • The StellarQuill pen gets all the points for its small-yet-hefty all-metal build

What we dislike

  • The pen could use a pocket clip to prevent it from rolling around

05. CIVIVI Button Lock Praxis

Top 10 EDC knives by CIVIVI to gift that enhance your outdoor adventures

Built on the framework of one of their most popular knives, this variation of the full-size Praxis now comes with a button lock, allowing for a more engaging and reliable deploying and retracting experience. Unlike the Mini Praxis (which has its own fan base), the Button Lock Praxis is a little larger and a little more capable, thanks to its full-size grip and 3.75″ Nitro-V blade. The blade still retains its drop-point design, which most people will say is the most popular design in the knife world, but the handle now comes made from Aluminum, giving the knife a balanced grip and a wee bit of weight (6.55oz / 185.6‬g) that makes it much more stable during use. If you felt like the Mini Praxis was the right design but just a tad too small for your liking, the Button Lock Praxis may just be the perfect alternative.

Click Here to Buy Now: Starting from $74.80 $88 (Use coupon code “yanko15” to get 15% off). Hurry, deal ends in 48 hours!

Why is it noteworthy?

The Button Lock Praxis is just one of those knives that has been perfected over time and has reached a place where it arguably couldn’t be improved any further. Aside from adding extra tools/features, there’s not much you can do to make this knife better than it already is, aside from a discount I guess?! *wink wink nudge nudge*

What we like

  • Great value for money with that Nitro-V blade and Aluminum handle
  • Reliable button lock makes opening and closing easy

What we dislike

  • The clean design is great, but a thumb stud would have really given the Button Lock Praxis a fun opening interaction

06. CIVIVI Chevalier Ⅱ

Top 10 EDC knives by CIVIVI to gift that enhance your outdoor adventures

The Chevalier II isn’t too different from its predecessor, the Chevalier, except for the fact that it now comes with a gorgeous machined aluminum handle that elevates the knife’s design. When you close your eyes and imagine a classic pocket knife, chances are your brain thinks of something like the Chevalier II – a simple, sophisticated little EDC that’s no-fuss and no-nonsense. The 3.47″ 14C28N steel blade is arguably the perfect size (not too small or big) and comes in a sheepsfoot profile that is great for cutting and slicing, and minimizes the risk of accidentally piercing yourself with the blade’s tip.

Click Here to Buy Now: Starting from $69.70 $82 (Use coupon code “yanko15” to get 15% off). Hurry, deal ends in 48 hours!

Why is it noteworthy?

There’s something beautiful about how clean and slick the Chevalier II’s design is. This doesn’t, however, compromise on its functionality, whether it’s the balanced all-metal design, the pocket-clip that can be reversed, or the years of expertise its maker CIVIVI has in the knife business.

What we like

  • Gorgeous clean design with a premium metal handle

What we dislike

  • The lack of jimping on the top of the blade, which was present on the older Chevalier

07. CIVIVI Propugnator

Top 10 EDC knives by CIVIVI to gift that enhance your outdoor adventures

The Propugnator stands out in this entire list because unlike every other knife, it comes with a fixed D2 blade that doesn’t fold into the handle. This significant design directions means the Propugnator is significantly more robust and is designed for heavy-duty tasks. If you want an EDC that doubles as a letter-opener, owning the Propugnator would be like using a flamethrower to light a candle – it’s kind of overkill. Instead, the Propugnator is built for a more hardcore lifestyle, whether it’s hunting, fishing, bushcraft, survival, or tactical use. The knife comes with a full-tang design, which means the blade’s metal extends all the way to the back, forming the skeleton of its handle. The edge of the blade measures well over 4 inches and comes with a rather edgy-looking reverse-tanto design that resembles the raw appeal of chiseled obsidian. You’ve got a choice between G10, Micarta, or Ultem handles, which give your knife a distinct design and tactile grip. The fixed-blade structure means each knife also comes with its own sheath crafted from Black Kydex, with a loop that lets it attach to your pants or belt loop.

Click Here to Buy Now: Starting from $75.99 $89.40 (Use coupon code “yanko15” to get 15% off). Hurry, deal ends in 48 hours!

Why is it noteworthy?

The Propugnator, which means defender or vindicator, is far from your average EDC knife. It clearly means business and nothing else. The full-tang fixed D2 blade is sturdy and reliable, and that sculpted reverse tanto edge works remarkably well for all sorts of cutting, piercing, slicing, stabbing, and scraping tasks. Look away if you’re faint-hearted…

What we like

  • The raw, brutish design and grippy ergonomic handle is perfect for tactical use

What we dislike

  • The fixed-blade design makes the Propugnator significantly bigger than its folding friends, which won’t appeal to people looking for compact knives.

08. CIVIVI Typhoeus

Top 10 EDC knives by CIVIVI to gift that enhance your outdoor adventures

The Typhoeus takes the term ‘folding knife’ to an entirely new level. While most knives simply have a blade that folds into a handle, the Typhoeus has a folding handle too that transforms from your regular handheld knife to a push-dagger-style knife that’s better suited for all-out tactical warfare. While the likelihood of needing a push-dagger as EDC is fairly low for us common citizens, the Typhoeus conveniently gives us the option with its convertible design. The knife sports a 2.27″ clip-point blade crafted from 14C28N steel, sitting within a two-part G10 handle that morphs from a linear form factor to a T-shaped one that you can hold in the grip of your hand with the blade pointing out between your fingers. “Perfect for general work or self-defence,” says one reviewer on CIVIVI’s site, and we can’t help but feel that might just be the best way to describe the Typhoeus… a perfectly good everyday folder, but with a wild alter-ego!

Click Here to Buy Now: Starting from $63.75 $75 (Use coupon code “yanko15” to get 15% off). Hurry, deal ends in 48 hours!

Why is it noteworthy?

The knife’s Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde persona is perfect for anything life throws at you, whether it’s an Amazon parcel or a mugger. Each knife also comes with its own black leather sheath that lets you stash your bad-boy away when not in use.

What we like

  • Innovative shapeshifting design
  • Fun to fidget with!

What we dislike

  • The folding handle means there’s no locking function, which might be a deal-breaker for some
  • There’s no pocket clip on the knife, but CIVIVI makes up for it with a leather sheath

09. CIVIVI Button Lock Brazen

Top 10 EDC knives by CIVIVI to gift that enhance your outdoor adventures

Like the Typhoeus, the Brazen too has a tactical personality. It boasts an edgy, aggressive design with an American Tanto-style blade that offers dual edges and a pointed tip, perfect for piercing, slicing, chopping, and more. Crafted from 14C28N steel, the 3.46-inch (88mm) blade is housed within a slim yet grippy G10 handle, and in this variant, it ditches the liner lock for a button lock. Rightfully christened Brazen, it isn’t afraid of challenges, making it the top choice for those who confront adversity head-on. With a weight of 3.91 ounces (101.8 grams), it’s a practical everyday carry that’s ready to prove itself, and be carried everywhere you go, thanks to the deep pocket clip attached to the handle.

Click Here to Buy Now: $63.75 $75 (Use coupon code “yanko15” to get 15% off). Hurry, deal ends in 48 hours!

Why is it noteworthy?

The Brazen, now with a button-lock, is effortless yet tactical – which sound like conflicting attributes, but they aren’t. The Button Lock Brazen is a lovely companion that gives you two edges for the price of one (thanks to the American Tanto blade), allowing you to cut, pierce, score, and do everything you would with your knife, using whichever edge you find more convenient. It also has a cool-kid aesthetic that should rub off on you too, making everyone ask you where you got your EDC from.

What we like

  • Two separate edges, where one can be used for scraping or opening packages, while the other can be used for slicing

What we dislike

  • The double-edged American Tanto blade can be a little tricky to sharpen

10. CIVIVI Vision FG

Top 10 EDC knives by CIVIVI to gift that enhance your outdoor adventures

The Vision FG is our new favorite CIVIVI knife because it ticks all the boxes with an eye-catching ambidextrous design, a unique handle that comes with holes that let you peek through and see the blade when closed (and also make the knife lightweight), and a Superlock on top that lets you effortlessly deploy and dock the knife’s highly capable blade in seconds. Before we admire the superlock and the handle, it’s worth noting that the Vision FG comes with a different kind of drop-point, boasting a straight-back that gives the blade a ‘belly’ of sorts that lets you rock the knife back and forth while using it. The blade, crafted from Nitro-V, measures a respectable 3.54 inches (89.9mm), and will slice even through paracords with practically zero resistance. The handle, on the other hand, comes in translucent Ultem, highly durable Micarta, and the standard G10 variants. A noteworthy detail is the presence of holes that make the handle rather interesting to look at, giving it visual as well as physical lightness (the Vision FG weighs 4.35 ounces or 123.4 grams). Built into the top of the handle is a superlock that relaxes the blade, allowing you to deploy or retract it in milliseconds. The superlock is unique to just the Vision FG, and play with it once and you’ll never want to go back to a button or liner lock ever again!

Click Here to Buy Now: Starting from $78.20 $92 (Use coupon code “yanko15” to get 15% off). Hurry, deal ends in 48 hours!

Why is it noteworthy?

The Vision FG is a rare combination of good-looking, powerful, and uniquely pleasurable to hold and use. The ambidextrous handle and superlock are sure to keep your hands and fingers occupied at all times, and that straight-back Nitro-V blade is formidable, to say the least.

What we like

  • The unique design is unlike any of the other knives on this list
  • That superlock is both functional and fidgety, and is arguably the feature you’ll love the most

What we dislike

  • Superlock exclusivity! We wish more CIVIVI knives had this kind of satisfying action.
