WE Knife Banter 2004A Folding Knife S35VN Blade G10 Handle
Designed by Ben Peterson, formerly of the Headquarters in Pleasant Grove, Utah, the Banter is named for the video series that he helped pioneer during his time there. Even years after he's been gone, the quality he brought to their videos remains. The Banter is his collaboration with We Knives drawing inspiration from other folding knives with the sole aim at being the perfect EDC piece. We think Ben succeeded and this knife is an impressive tool that hits a lot of marks right on the nose.
First and foremost, the Banter is an ideal size for everyday carry. The nearly three-inch blade is housed in a compact handle so the overall length is just a hair over six-and-a-half inches. The wide base gives you ample room to grip and places the cutting surface right next to the fingers for more leverage. It's a simple shape with simple G10 and stainless steel liner construction but what it lacks in design aesthetics it more than makes up in terms of ergonomics and strength. It's comfortable, solid, and it just flat out gets the job done. Dual thumb studs allow multiple opening methods but the deep-carry pocket clip is now set-up for tip-up, right or left-hand carry on this exclusive model. The jimping on the thumb ramp is ultra-functional and the lanyard hole is large enough for 550-paracord. Ben thought of everything on the Banter and we welcome it as a force to be reckoned with in the growing realm of EDC knives.
