Great blade shape, fit and finish is on , but not field tested yet.. still deciding if I'm gonna gift it or use it... with this cost, I know I won't cry if I abuse it .

I actually have this in my pocket right now. It was my first MD purchase. Overall, the fit and finish is pretty good. Nice smooth action and lockup. Sure, the steel isn't the best, but for my daily use, it holds up well. A few passes on my Sharpmaker, and it shaves hair. The only issue, if you can even call it that, is that the tan version I received is darker than what is shown in the pics. Not a big deal to me at all, just wanted people to be aware.

Possible that KC is the supplier for the drop?
Btw for those in US you can get it at white mountain knife for 10% off with coupon code “sdwmk” i got mine for $38.xx shipped after discount
Sorry I'm not sold. -Uninspired design (same old, same old) -Unimpressive steel
To me this is a question of Quantity vs. Quality. 3 of these mediocre knives or 1 really good one with great steel
Anyone know what the action is running on? Teflon, bronze, bearings?

If you go to YouTube and type in Zelrick Civivi knife review, several vids will come up on Praxis, Baklash, and the Naja, plus disassembly and maintenance videos too. I’m unsure, but I think I recall steel ball bearings being Civivi’s preference when I was looking. Bill

The pivor is stainless steel ball bearing and the detent is ceramic ball bearing so you get a strong and crisp detent that won’t wear out/flatten over time unlike the steel detent
I bought a Civivi Praxis and Baklash from Amazon via third party sellers last week, White Mountain and Atlantic if I recall.....$42 each. And in my estimation, both nearly perfect. Given that this price point is generally regarded as a budget value niche, I’d be really concerned were I a knife company obliviously selling my products in this previously safe zone with its previously large “soft quality“ expectations. That said, it appears the playing surface has changed, and if you’ll forgive the pun, We clearly benefit(s). The adage, faster, better, cheaper—-pick two, no longer applies. I loved the Link and Dividend, but I confess I wonder what these two blades would have been like without the smoke and mirrors of AO and brought to market by We.

i have used it a few times. take an insanly mirror fine edge and holds it better than aus8. No chipping probs either. still personally like well done 440c better but i think 440c is slightly chippyer.
I have the Praxis and feel it performs comparably to VG10 in terms of edge retention, though VG10 can get a little sharper at max. Sharpens up about as easily as VG10 also. I would call this about the finest "budget" steel I've used. Worlds apart from 8 Cr.
I have this knife and amazing value for what you get. Action is fantastic. Fit and finish is first rate. You will not find a better knife under $50. I guess that all vendors are selling it for the same price.
You can get it WhiteMountainKnives for $38.25 and free shipping with a coupon code. Just look up SliceyDicey on youtube. I got mine in 2 days. Great Knife for the money. Of course it is because it is made by the WE Knife company. Detente is perfect and it flies out. Smooth action great fit and finish.

I joined the Mdrop for the Praxis. But, I was able to get the Baklash from WMK, and I used the promo code!!! Just like you said, $38.25, out the door :) They just restocked the Baklash as I received an email from WMK. They are still out of the Praxis. Thank you !
Just got one of these Praxis models. Terrific value for the $.
This new budget line from WE is intriguing. Too bad massdrop can't seem to get better deals on them.

Yeah, I’m getting a bit more sceptical myself about these offerings. The presumed deal following massdrop involvement seems less and less the case and more like just another “beating the drum” ploy for my money. I’m finding the Massdrop savings on much of the daily drumbeat items debatable. Ok, I get it, not everything is available for the mass purchase approach. Maybe this approach by a company is not sustainable, I don’t know, but I confess a comparable price by Amazon with practicalily instant shipping sorely tempts me—-despite their Hugenesssssss.......B
