Designed by the guys at Ferrum Forge, the Civivi Odium is sized right and is the perfect combination of utility and pocket friendliness. It’s the same basic design as the WE 911 Malice but built with more budget friendly materials which brings the price down to about $53.
The Odium has a fantastic feel in hand, partly because in production they “chopped” all the edges. What does that mean? Essentially, they’ve taken this linerlock and rounded the edges of the G-10 handle scales to eliminate the sharpish or pointiest bits just enough to give it fantastic feel in hand. For added slip resistance, the G-10 backspacer has been machined with grooves. The slip resistance in use is great, but the ride in your pocket is even better with this knife. It has an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip, and at 3.54” closed and with a handle thickness of about 0.43”, it’s a slim ride in just about any pocket. Oh, it’s fairly lightweight at about 2.5 ounces.
The Odium has a flat ground 2.65” D2 drop point blade with a blade thickness of 0.12” hardened to a 59-61 HRC. It’s a flipper with a long secondary thumb hole that rides on a caged ceramic ball bearing pivot for an outstandingly quick action. There’s an elongated forward finger choil and some light jimping along the spine added security when doing that fine detail work.
