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.
The WIUG (What Iiiiiss Up Guys) edition includes:
- Ben Blue WIUG Shop Rag
- 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!

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.
