The WE Banter is an EDC (everyday carry) knife designed to be low profile and avoid screaming "look at me!" when you pull it out. Some knives scream, believe us. This one doesn't. 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.
Our WIUG Banter is a little different than the other ones you'll find out there. We include these extra goodies:
- Ben Blue WIUG Shop Rag
- Knafs Strop Compound
- Knafs Mini Leather Strop/Keychain
- WIUG sticker
- Option to have Ben engrave it with his signature. Please add a checkout note if you'd like your knife signed.
- Signed = you want Ben to pull the knife out of the package and permanently tattoo the back of the blade with his signature via a metal engraver.
- Unsigned = you don't want Ben's grubbies on your brand new knife, and you want to be first to break the seal on the box. This is the default setting.

If you'd like to save a few bucks or find free shipping out there, feel free to shop the other dealers that carry the knife. They're all fantastic, and Ben receives a royalty for every knife sold anywhere-- so, you're still supporting the Ben biz, which is super cool of you.
