Blade Show 2017 Sees More We Knife Co. Variety

We Knife Co. Booth

We Knife Co. has been keeping up a blistering pace of releases, and this year they brought multiple new models with them to Blade Show. We’ve already had previews of the Eschaton, Zeta, and the Bullitt, but in addition we saw four unnamed new products that continue We Knife Co.’s push.

Blade shapes and grinds never seen before on We Knife products show a renewed attention to variety. The Eschaton is in a class of its own in this regard, but even We’s less extreme offerings are getting more ambitious. Two other knives feature nightmare-style grinds, and another a heavily modified wharncliffe with a giant sweeping belly.

The company has also worked on distinguishing one model from another. Bringing in outside designers like Elijah Isham and Uli Hennicke probably helped, but even the new in-house products have different finishes, unique milling, or other distinguishing characteristics.

Over at the Begg Knives booth there was other We Knife Co. news. Todd Begg is bringing the compay onboard for the Steelcraft series. The first Begg design to get the We Knife treatment is the Glimpse, which is coming out in several variations, all of which are hitting a lower price point than their Reate-produced predecessors. Last year at the Gathering, the Begg brothers tried to pass off a fixed blade Glimpse as a folder as a cheeky prank, but we can confirm that the Steelcraft Glimpse’s 3.5-inch S35VN blade does indeed ride on a smooth ball bearing pivot.

Prices and names of the new We Knife Co. knives are still to be determined. The Steelcraft Glimpse stickers for $300 for the standard model, $350 for the carbon fiber option.
