Mars Kitty Banter Scales Version 2.0

By Knafs

THESE LIMITED EDITION SCALES ARE NOW OUT OF PRINT AND WE WILL NOT BE MAKING ANY MORE FOR THE ORIGINAL BANTER. However, if we make a similar product in the future and you'd like to be notified, feel free to sign up by clicking the "Notify Me When Available" button above.


The Mars Kitty Banter: Beautiful. Functional. Utterly Ridiculous. 

We teamed up with the incredibly talented Colorfulfilth to create this Limited Edition Mars Kitty Banter Scale set as the 2nd round of our Space Kitty Knife series. It's inspired by Mars and the goal to put a man, woman, child, and kitty cat on the Red Planet. 

Why a Mars space kitty? The same reason NASA keeps sending rockets and rovers to Mars: because it's there. It calls to us. There's an absurdity and challenge to the thing that inspires us. Mars is pretty epic. Add cats? Mind blown.

Important Note: Some of the original Mars Kitty Scales crash landed: they had quality issues that caused the printing to flake and chip. We reprinted this 2.0 version to make it right and to prove that kitties DO belong on the Red Planet. This run includes the rocket name "Laika" (in memory of the first ill-fated Space Dog) on the front scale and a more prominent 2nd moon on the back scale to differentiate from Version 1.

Here are the other details:

  • These Mars Space Kitty scales fit any of the WE Banter knives in G10.
  • They're the scales ONLY. No knife included.
  • You will void your manufacturer warranty by using these scales. WE's warranty explicitly states, "Disassembly or modification of the knife will void the warranty." In using these scales, you will both disassemble and modify your knife. Neither WE nor Knafs will be responsible if you ruin your knife. It's like that math test you may or may not have studied for back in high school-- you are solely responsible for the grade. If this type of responsibility is scary, these scales probably aren't for you. 
  • Precision made in Yangjiang, China by an incredibly talented group of knifemakers.
  • Printed in Nashville, TN by an equally talented group of laser wizards at Amplify EDC
  • A Knafs exclusive limited run product. 

For easy disassembly and assembly of your WE Banter (or any of your other knafs) check out our iFixit Torx tool kit with Wiha bits. We searched high and low for the best driver and bits and feel like we found the perfect combo with this kit.


Lastly, a real conversation with my dad, documented here for safe keeping:

Dad: What are you working on for your business?

Me: *Pulls out Mars Kitty Banter* Just this new little knife with kitties on it.

Dad: *Examines knife, laughs* Ben, you're a grown man. Why do you do this stuff? 

Me: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
