The WE Banter is an EDC (everyday carry) knife designed to be low profile and quiet. And the shred fiber handles classes the thing up nicely-- take it to your next black tie event. Or take it to your favorite fishing hole. This knife doesn't care. It just shows up to cut things and cut them well. The deep carry clip keeps it low in the pocket, and the quiet lines make this a tool that thrives in the office, yet functions perfectly in the backcountry. The Banter has a high fidget factor with ceramic ball bearings around the pivot and a perfectly manufactured detent that make opening and closing this pocket knife a dream worth repeating again and again. And again.
If you select the WIUG Edition of the Banter, it will cost you $5 extra, but it comes with a a few add-on goodies:
- Ben Blue WIUG Shop Rag or Knife Anatomy Shop Mat (based on product availability)
- Ben's Signature: Ben will open your knife and permanently tattoo his signature on the blade with a metal engraver
- WIUG sticker
- Whatever other exciting things we decide to throw in there. Prepare for fun!
