Designed by Ben Petersen (Knafs, WIUG, Ben Banters, et al.), the WE Knives Banter is a simple and straightforward liner lock folder built based on Ben's extensive research and experience with knife trends over the last decade. Classic design features paired with modern construction make the Banter a solid daily carry choice for most users. This version comes with a black stonewashed S35VN drop point blade and marbled carbon fiber handle scales.

Brand new, direct from WE Knife Co.

Blade: Riding on a caged ceramic ball bearing pivot, the drop point blade deploys fast and smooth via ambidextrous dual titanium thumb studs. A nearly full flat grind on the relatively wide blade delivers solid performance with good durability. A small section of jimping on the spine enhances traction and provides a good reference for indexing while the rugged black stonewashed finish hides wear and is discreetly non-reflective.

Handle: Inset stainless steel liner construction paired with dual barrel spacers forms an easy to maintain and lightweight, open back construction. Lightweight marbled carbon fiber offers a handsome look and smooth pocket transition. The steel liner lock is reliable in operation offering solid, secure lockup for safe use.

Carries via a right-hand stainless steel deep carry clip.

CPM-S35VN: Modified CPM-S30V designed for improved toughness (15-20%) and ease of machining and polishing. Well-balanced for daily use, S35VN has better edge retention and toughness compared to 440C or VG10, with equivalent corrosion resistance.
