Wow do these guys continue to impress! The model 703C Flipper by WE Knife Co. is the definition of bang for your buck. A super useful drop point Black Stonewash-Satin D2 flipper blade riding on a ceramic ball bearings pivot paired with contoured Tan G10 and accented by 6Al-4V Titanium hardware. Want to hear more?
The Blade: This black-stonewashed/satin straight shooter commands attention with its upper-swedged, hollow ground drop styled blade and outstanding grinds. A high hollow grind to a shaving sharp edge with satin flats and blacked grooves on both sides. Right about 3.50 inches to work with and about a half inch of expertly machined jimping on the spine for a comfy thumb ramp. Ambidextrous flipper deployment on the 703 with spot-on detent for absolutely no-wrist action necessary opening. It rides on its pivot smoothly via ceramic ball bearings.
The Handle: Comfortably contoured, finger choiled Tan G10 handle scales just melts into your palm. The grip should feel right at home in most hands. Two black liners provide strength and one of them provides the solid, early lockup. Plenty of nice bronzed titanium to accent this handle. The screws, pivot cap, backspacer and pocket clip are all wonderfully placed 6Al-4V titanium.
Fit and finish on this knife is up there with just about any company in the industry right now. Very impressive package from WE Knife Co.
The 703C ships in a zipper pouch that includes a company info card, WE labeled microfiber cloth and proprietary star tool to adjust their hardware.
