The Civivi Pintail is a lightweight cigar-like digital camera perfect for those that are constantly on the go and on the run. This handy model of the CIVI Pintail features a stainless steel, black anodized micarta handle with an anodized silver blade. The CIVI Pintail also has several other variations. Each is equally well executed using premium materials found in many professional grade digital cameras.
The main variation of this product comes in its housing. It is most commonly available as a standard size carrying case. The case is covered in leather with a soft leather bottom and is well executed and finished. The entire unit is covered in a durable rubberized exterior. In the case, the anodized silver blade that is used to cut food is covered in a black g-10 handle. The ergonomically friendly design makes it easy to use while also providing a firm grip.
A variation that does not necessarily have a blade is the civivi pintail blackberry case which has a leather-carrying handle and a silver or black blade. This allows for the possibility of replacing broken blades while still keeping your camera clean and well executed. This model of the CIVI Pintails also incorporates premium materials to help protect against impact.
The third variation of the CIVI Pinto comes in the form of the CIVI Pocket PC. This is similar to the Pintsafe model in that it also has anodized aluminum handles and a stainless steel, black anodized blade. The major difference is that the Pinths offers an option for a thumb stud that is built into the top of the handle. This allows you to place your thumb on the stud when your hand is on the blade. It is important to note that the thumb stud is designed in conjunction with the blade so they are not compatible for use with one another.
The fourth and final variation of this type of knife is the CIVITOLA Pintail. As its name would imply, this is a Pintail, but it is one that offers a pocket that extends out in order to carry the entire knife in one hand. It has a unique design that incorporates two rings on the handle of the Pintail. These rings, when placed on the opposite sides of your thumb, allow you to carry your Pintail with the ring on the inside of your right thumb. The unique advantage of having two rings is that it allows you to reach over and access both compartments of the knife.
The fifth variation of this type of knife is the CIVITOLA MICarta Handle. As its name would imply, the CIVITOLA MICarta Handle utilizes a MICarta handle in order to meet all of the requirements of a good pocket knife. The unique design utilizes a high quality metal that is lightweight and durable, as well as allowing the user to rotate the knife in either direction. This rotation motion is what helps to maximize the safety of the user, as it also provides an opening for a pair of standard double-sided knives.
The sixth variant of the Civivi Pintail is the CIVITOLA SHORTCUT. This knife comes in a standard size that is one inch by three inches, with a one and a half inch titanium zipper insert. This insert is part of a larger system called the Tinkerbell Scales. The Tinkerbell Scales system is used to provide a means of fitting the Pintha with a variety of different accessories that can be added to the knife over time. Some of these accessories include a tinkerbell key chain, a leather carrying case, and a tinkerbell carrying cap.
The seventh version of the Civivi Pintail includes the SHORTFAST Lazer System. The Short Flint System allows the user to use a pair of standard blank knives in place of the Tinkerbell. After the user has inserted their blades into both sides of the case, they can rotate the knife in either direction using a flick of the wrist. This action opens up the sheath, which allows the user to place the blade inside of it. One of the advantages of this type of knife is that there is no need to remove the blade from the handle when the knife is not in use.
