CIVIVI KNIVES CIVC20075B1 SYNERGY 3 TANTO NITRO-V STEEL 3D G10 FOLDING KNIFE
The original Synergy was designed by retired mechanical design engineer turned competitive shooter Jim O'Young and produced by CIVIVI's sister company WE Knives. Jim leveraged his knowledge and experience to design and engineer the SpeedTech Synergy folding knife using SolidWorks, a state-of-the-art, 3-dimensional, solid modeling CAD software tool. It was the very first knife created using this technology and featured several design elements never seen before in a production folding knife: an ergonomic, fully 3D digitally sculpt surface handle machined from a single, solid billet of material, a captive floating bearing system, and a button lock with increased engagement geometry.
The Synergy was truly way ahead of its time and was awarded the Most Innovative American Design at the 1999 BLADE Show by its industry peers. On the 20th anniversary of the original Synergy design, Jim partnered with WE Knives to continue the legacy and introduce an updated and re-engineered Synergy 2 to the next generation of cutlery enthusiasts.
The CIVIVI Synergy 3 gives you the exact same profile as the original and WE Knives designs with much more attention paid to the price point. You still have the impressive action thanks to the caged ceramic bearings and the same wildly ergonomic handle, now made from 3D machined G10. It's been shrunk down a tad making it more suitable for everyday carry and not catching an unwanted eye.
