Civivi has been cooking up something for fans of the wharncliffe, with an incoming offering called the Amirite. The Amirite’s striking take on the popular blade shape steals the show, and it comes paired to a no-nonsense, high-grip handle.
We’ve remarked on this before, but mid-sized blades have made a big comeback in the EDC category over the last few years. They were never obscure or anything like that, but they’re center stage again after a period in which they shared the spotlight with the sub-3 inch knife. The Amirite’s blade length is 3.48, a common measurement for mid-size knives that maximizes the capabilities of a cutting edge without shooting it into the stratosphere sizewise, keeping it an accessible carry for many users.
Interesting that they went with Nitro-V when their proprietary powder steel, RPM9 is such a solid option.
