Elementum Line Expands Yet Again with Fixed Blade Model

2021 is clearly the Year of the Elementum over at Civivi. The popular little EDC folder has already been the subject of one major line expansion this year, and now a new fixed blade Elementum is on the way. This release showcases how the Elementum’s simple design can easily transition into the small fixed blade genre.

The fixed blade Elementum has been scaled up a bit, with a blade length of 3.98 inches. That’s a pretty big jump in length compared to the folder, which measures only 2.9 inches long. The fixed blade does keep the same blade shape, however: a spear point that manages to be both stylish and straightforward. In this larger iteration, the Elementum can move beyond day-to-day cutting tasks into some medium-weight outdoors chores.

The blade steel is a bit of a departure for Civivi: instead of D2 like we saw on the folder, they chose 10Cr15CoMoV. This steel is a real mouthful, and somewhat mysterious, but according to reliable sources it is intended to be an equivalent to VG-10 steel.

The handle, too, remains unchanged in terms of its general profile. An unassuming, universal, accessible shape plays into the all-purpose remit of the fixed blade Elementum. However, instead of the flat, letterbox onlays of the folding Elementum, the fixed blade comes with contoured G-10 scales – a change that will make it more comfortable generally, and more suitable for the high impact, fixed blade-grade tasks it might be called upon to do. The fixed blade Elementum is a full tang creation, and it comes with a black leather sheath; its weight is listed at 5.47 oz.

Earlier this month we saw the release of the button lock Elementum. In addition to the obvious change in deployment/locking mechanism, that knife was a fair bit larger than the liner lock model, with a 3.47-inch blade.

There is no release date for the fixed blade Elementum yet, but Civivi has set the MSRP at $99.40.
