Civivi Naja first appeared in the second half of 2018. The blade material is constructed 9Cr18Mov stainless steel. This is a higher end grade Chinese stainless steel which per Wikipedia is also used for barber shears and surgical instruments. Comparable to 440C this flat ground blade takes a nice edge and is easy to sharpen. HRC 58-60
Naja is produced with textured G-10 handle scales providing a secure grip. Available in three colors black, orange and blue, the contoured handle feels good in the hand. Naja is a liner lock knife with gold stainless steel liners. Skeletonization of the liners provides for weight reduction while maintaining rigidity in the handle.
A relatively beefy knife, Naja has a blade length of 3.75". What you will notice when handling the knife is the effortless deployment of the blade. This is due to the stainless steel ball bearing pivot.
At 5.17oz the Civivi Naja can be utilized as an everyday carry option and would be an excellent choice for hikers and backpackers.
