Blade Show 2021: More We Knife Co. Collaborations on the Way

Last week we showed the latest batch of Civivi releases. Those knives were joined at Blade Show by a trio of new We Knife Co. designs. All three incoming knives are collaborations with returning designers: there’s the next evolution of the Todd Knife and Tool Roxi, and two designs from Ostap Hel that break away from his previous work. Like their Civivi counterparts, these knives are considered “Fall 2021” products, with a release window between July and December.


You wouldn’t guess by looking at it, but the Arsenal is in fact an Ostap Hel design. Here, Hel went for something big, angular, and tactical. The Arsenal has a 3.56-inch tanto blade, with a long secondary edge, strutwork cutouts, and a flipper deployment. G-10 half scales are laid over a titanium chassis, with the standard steel insert frame lock present and accounted for.


The Quark also comes from Hel. It’s about as far away from the Arsenal as it is possible to be, and equally differentiated from the designer’s other work. This is an extremely tiny neck knife design, with a 1.26-inch, chisel-ground kiradashi blade. Instead of a linear handle, the Quark has a circular, pendant style one, embellished with the We Knife Co. logo. The included sheath is made from titanium and carbon fiber.

Roxi 3

The Roxi, designed by Seth and Teryl Todd of Todd Knife and Tool, returns to the We lineup this year, landing in a size class in between previous models in the Roxi family. The Roxi 3’s blade is 3.14 inches long, and it has the same stylized wharncliffe shape as its predecessors. Also present from Roxies past is the industrial, technical handle style. The Roxi 3 can be opened with the thumb oval or, for the first time in the Roxi series, a front flipper.
