    I feel like you're burying the lede a little here. It's definitely cool that it's a front flipper with studs, but apparently it's also using Nitro-V as the blade steel.

    No one will be getting the Imperium as there was a problem with it and WE KNIFE have pulled it from sale. No idea when or if it will return.

    Ah sorry - it only applies to the C2017B dark brown Micarta model and all the other Imperiums are okay. I read that a bit too fast....

    The purpose of this email is to inform you that we have discovered that our recent announcement of Civivi C2107B – Imperium knife may contain product that does not meet our manufacturing standards.

    * This SKU is not suitable to be sold and we will remove this model from your current invoice.

    The Civivi C2107B – Imperium is the only model that is affected and any other knives of your new order are good to go.

    * We do not know when the Civivi C2107B – Imperium may be ready for distribution again and suggest that you remove this SKU from the "coming soon" section of your website.

    From all of my dealings with WE/Civivi, both as a customer and as a member of their design team, I have always known the company to be VERY serious about producing and delivering products with the highest level of quality design, materials & workmanship.

    Apparently, there was a material issue with this one SKU, but they caught it & took steps to make sure it didn't reach their customers.

    If there was a problem, they would most certainly take care of it and make it right.

    Happy to see some excitement about this new release! We did not have samples ready to show when we first announced the first half of our 2021 lineup so it missed those videos.

    Regarding the email mentioned by @True Talon, it is definitely in production and should be available to purchase at dealers sometime in May. We found in our QC that there was an unstable batch of Micarta in the one specific color. This SKU has been removed from dealer orders and will not be available for sale. All other SKUs are good to go!

    We are extremely proud of our QC team for identifying this problem before any product shipped as it is only apparent with changes in humidity and temperature. With WE's dedicated team and commitment to quality you can always purchase with confidence. We will have a video up on the Civivi YouTube channel around the end of April to give you a close look at the details.

    Is it possible that brown micarta will be run in the future, or is that version just being removed entirely? (It's the one I liked best. :D)

    Great-looking knife all around, and I'm impressed with the QC process and WE's willingness to pull a SKU like this. :thumbsup:
