We Knife Company
We Knife Company has been around the game for a long time but has only recently begun manufacturing their own designs. They started by manufacturing OEM designs for other companies and have gained a reputation in the industry as a name you can rely on. Their products are innovative, beautiful, and extremely well-built so you can rest assured you're getting a supreme quality product at a great price.

The 809 model from We Knife is a fantastic knife and, in our opinion, represents an incredible value for what you're getting. This is an amazingly feature-laden knife for its price point. It flips open extremely smoothly and quickly since it rides on ceramic bearings with a nice thwack upon lockup. The 3.3" drop point blade is made from Bohler M390 stainless steel with a satin finish. The properly designed flipper tab rockets the blade out and also doubles as a finger guard while open. The slender, ergonomic handle is made from textured G10 with a liner lock mechanism and custom hardware. The slight curvature to the handle locks it into your hand perfectly for extended hard use cutting tasks while the slim shape makes it very easy to carry. The pocket clip, backspacer, screws, and pivot cap are all 6Al4V titanium for maximum quality assurance and you have a small lanyard hole to use if necessary. This is an excellent tactical design that can flex into an EDC role easily and effectively, proudly manufactured in China to extremely precise tolerances.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Needed a replacement for my everyday beater kershaw to keep from boogering up my nicer knives on the job, and this was on special right at $100 with m390 steel, so I figured I'd give it a try. I was skeptical about buying Chinese, but I'm pretty impressed with the quality, fit and finish. It's a good looking knife too; looks better in person than in the pictures. Blade is perfectly centered, grind is good and even on both sides and edge was very sharp out of the box; just a few light swipes on the strop and had a razor edge. Detent is just right on mine, and flips open with a nice satisfying "thwack". Lock is rock solid with absolutely no blade wiggle in any direction. I'd say this is a great deal even when not on sale, and it has ceramic bearings to boot. I love my zt's, and they're nicer knives (at a much higher price point), but ceramic would be a nice touch on the zt's fellas ! All in all, the Practic is a good substitute if you need a stunt double for your zt452

Great knife!
If you get tired of 4mm blade stock on an EDC (as I do), then this is the knife for you! A thin blade of hollow ground M390 makes this a terrific slicer. Heavily milled liners give you a very light knife in the pocket AND I can find absolutely no branding on the blade - only the WE logo on the pivot screw and pocket clip. This makes for a very clean looking knife. Speaking of appearance, this knife is pretty mundane and certainly won't attract much attention when you take it out of your pocket, but the typical WE quality is obvious. One factor that you may want to consider is the detent - it's about 4-5 on a scale of 10 - perfect for me, but probably not for everyone. I highly recommend this model!
