Do you ship internationally?
No, we do not ship internationally.
Why not? Knafs is run by us, Ben and Athena Petersen, and only us (with occasional help packaging from the neighborhood kids). It's the side hussle that we work on in the evening after Ben finishes his full-time job and our four kids are asleep. It's a crazy life, and we've found that adding the complexity of international shipping to our business makes it crazier. We may offer this service in the future, but for now we are trying to scale our business at a level that keeps it fun and doable for us.
The good news is that we do have Knafs dealers all over the world listed on our Dealers page. Check it out to see if they have the product that you're looking for.
Where can I buy Ben's knife design, the WE Banter?
If we have them in stock, you can buy them on our site. For a full list of WE Banter dealers internationally, you can check out this list on Ben's website. We try to keep it as up to date as possible.
When will my favorite Banter color be back in stock on your site?
We don't know.
Because all you wonderful people have been buying Banters all over the world, there are a lot of colors and models that are on backorder and difficult to get right now. Follow us on Instagram to keep up to date with what we are getting restocked (you can also follow Ben for good measure). That is likely where the news will hit first.
When will the Green Micarta WE Banter release on your site?
It won't (for the foreseeable future). WE knives has recalled all micarta Banters due to issues with the micarta flexing in humid environments, potentially leading to lock failure. However WE engineers are hard at work to make another micarta Banter design for future release. Stay tuned.
Do you have more Space Kitty WE Banter scales for sale?
No, unfortunately we do not.
The original Space Kitty scales were an exclusive item with only 100 made. We've heard that some have popped up on the secondary market (Ebay, etc.) so you can always check there. The good news is that we have more adventures planned with the Space Kitty and more scales to be made- after all, there is always more space to explore.
What about the Mars Kitty (V2.0) WE Banter scales?
The second version of the space kitty WE Banter scales, the Mars Kitty ones, were a limited release and will not be available for the foreseeable future. Due to chipping on the scales we recalled the original set and sent out new scales. Be careful and watch out for the recalled, prone to chip scales on the secondary market. You can tell V1 and V2 apart- V2 (the good ones) have the word "Laika" on the rocket.
Knafs, WE, Ben Banters, WIUG- I'm confused...
Here's how it works: you're reading this post on Knafs.com-- a website and brand where we make fun knife stuff and sell it. Anything that we design, make, and distribute on our own is Knafs branded. However, Ben is working on designing a few things that others make and distribute. That's where WIUG (What Iiiiiiissss Up Guys) comes in. It's his maker's mark and personal brand. So, in the case of this new knife, WE is the manufacturer and brand, Banter is the model, and it is a Ben Petersen design, so it's got a WIUG logo on it. Clear as mud? ;)
