TOP 25 BEST SELLING BLADES OF 2017: #21 We Knife Co. 708 Karambit Flipper
Presented by

Since barreling into the high-end production knife market in early 2016, We Knife Co. has not slowed down. Years of experience as an OEM manufacturer cemented their reputation for quality, and their own head-turning designs stand out in a crowded premium production market.

While karambit-style blades aren’t practical for everyone, there’s no denying that the 708 is hard to resist even if you don’t really need a secondary weapon. The knife’s unforgiving 2.6-inch S35VN hawkbill blade is deployed by a flipper tab that doubles as a guard and features a decorative thumb hole cut out. The points, curves, and bevels embody We Knife Co.’s characteristic lines and eye for detail. Its 3D-machined titanium handle is built for comfort and features a substantial finger ring that won’t pinch the hand in a tight grip.

Riding on ceramic bearings and a ceramic detent ball, the action is effortless. Though We Knife Co.’s knives are not inexpensive, the tight tolerances and material choices make them feel like they should cost a lot more.

As is the case with most of their models, We Knife Co.’s 708 Karambit Flipper is available in numerous blade and anodized titanium finishes.

Visit KnifeNews tomorrow to find out which model is #20 on our countdown of the Top 25 Best Selling Blades of 2017.

The TOP 25 Best Selling Blades of 2017 is based on a ranking of year-to-date dollar sales per day of all non-kitchen cutlery at The Virginia-based dealer stocks the largest catalog of cutlery in the world and serves the most diverse customer base of any knife retailer.

We chose to remove knives available only at from consideration. Exclusives that would have otherwise made the list include:
the HAP40 Spyderco Delica in Mahogany Pakkawood
the HAP40 Spyderco Endura in Mahogany Pakkawood
the s35vn Orange Southard Positron
the s35vn Tanto Andre De Villiers Beast Flipper
the Svord Peasant Knife Exclusives

Certain knives available for pre-order, namely the ZT 0055, Benchmade 87, and DPx HEST/F Urban were also purposefully excluded even though based on pre-orders it’s clear they are among the year’s most popular.
