Released in December 2021, the Synergy 3 is Civivi's budget friendly variant of the WE Synergy 2 so you know you have a well designed knife right off the bat.
A little smaller than its WE offering, the Synergy 3 offers some nicely contoured, milled G10 scales, caged ceramic ball bearings and strong Nitro-V steel in either a trailing point blade or a tanto blade. The trailing point blade makes for great food prepping - filleting and deboning while the tanto blade is great for strong cuts.
A highly acclaimed knife for its innovative design, the Synergy 3 not only feels great in your pocket but is also kind to your pockets too.
And who can go past a good back story to a knife:
Back in 1999, the original Synergy designed by Jim O'young blew the knife industry away and took out the award for most innovative knife design. The Synergy was the very first knife created using Solidworks - an advanced 3D modelling technology and featured several design elements never seen before in a production folding knife: an ergonomic, fully 3-D 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.
