KnifeNews: Sencut Line Grows in June with Release of the Excalis

June will see a new knife roll out from Sencut, the younger sibling label to We Knife Co. and Civivi. It’s called the Excalis, and it follows a similar mandate as a recent Civivi model in delivering a competent, all-arounder everyday carry.

In an earlier article on the incoming Civivi Regulatron, we described that knife as a “dead simple EDC folder.” The same descriptor can very much be applied to the Excalis, although it does sport a bit more visual flair than its stripped back compatriot. Its 2.97-inch blade, for instance, flaunts your textbook EDC edge profile (a little straight edge, a little belly, a good tip), but with the added embellishment of a harpoonish swedge. Opened with either thumb stud or flipper, the Excalis’ blade is made from 9Cr18MoV, an entry-level stainless near in performance to its relation 8Cr13MoV, which for many years was the de facto budget knife steel from just about every manufacturer other than Boker.

I forget about Sencut, mostly because I feel that WE’s Civivi brand does souch a great job holding down the budget sector of the market.
