The Civivi Exarch
Urban Knife Guy shares his thoughts on the Civivi Exarch.
Based out of China, CIVIVI is a sub-brand of We Knives that focuses on offering a functional, utilitarian, EDC product line at more affordable prices. However, as of later Civivi has been raising their prices. They have a new sister company called Sencut that seems to be taking up the budget knives position.

D2 steel is a versatile high-carbon, high-chromium, air-hardening tool steel with high hardness capacity and good wear resistance. It has one of the highest levels of carbon among tool steel alloy.
However, D2 steel is not categorized as stainless steel because it has a chromium composition of 11.5 to 12%, which does not meet the 13% chromium content to make it stainless. Because of this, D2 tool steel is referred to as semi-stainless tool steel.
