The first week of August, we wrote about a trio of Civivi releases due to hit this month; but in the meantime another new model actually arrived on shelves, a big knife called the Sentinel Strike. The Strike is modeled on a recent award-winning limited release from We Knife Co., the Ziffius.
Broadly speaking, We Knife Co. (of which Civivi is a sub-label) splits their releases between mainline, ongoing production model, and limited run knives, restricted to just a few hundred pieces each. Such a knife was the Ziffius, which came out in the spring of this year. An in-house We design, it was a large, super premium wharnie that especially resonated with users, winning two awards at Blade Show Texas including Best in Show. The Ziffius is long gone, but, in a rare occurrence, it has been adapted into the Civivi lineup in the form of the Sentinel Strike.
