WEK902B: 902B Gentry Slipjoint Folder
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 902 Gentry is We's first slipjoint folder and it's an instant classic. This elongated pen knife is similar to a Texas Toothpick but with a less pronounced curve to the handle which many will prefer. It requires two hands to open but the action is just the right balance between smooth and stout that you look for in a slipjoint folder. At 7.8" overall, the Gentry is a very capable EDC knife that includes a half-stop safety, which should be a standard feature on slipjoints these days. It's a wonderful introduction to the slipjoint market and will undoubtedly have some people switching over to traditional knives, and maybe for good.

A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
