Imperium is a suitable name for this knife design as we think it displays a great sense of absolute power. The wide drop point blade is nearly three-and-a-half inches of Nitro-V stainless steel with dual thumb studs, a finger choil and jimping for detail work, and plenty of belly for all sorts of tasks. It transitions into a slender handle made from shredded carbon fiber that has a slight curvature to make it viable for all hand sizes. Caged ceramic bearings make the action feel especially good and we just can't get over how clean this knife looks. It's well on its way to giving the Elementum a run for its money as the best overall CIVIVI design. The Imperium is absolute perfection.
