    GAW CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!


    During Blade Show 2019 WE will release a very special knife and visitors of Blade Show 2019 will be the first to have the opportunity for buying it. And especially for this debut, buyers will get a commorative gift with their purchase. But be warned, only very limited available.

    Just a little bit about this knife (NO, NO, NO! No pictures yet. Something to guess remains......) & what makes it a very special debut:
    • Twenty years ago, this knife won an award during Blade Show. So this will be the 20st anniversary of this design.
    • Te original (20 years ago) and the revised design both done by the same designer.
    I am very excited. Can't wait actually. I have handled the proto's since 9 months or so. And these are already so stunning.

    Well, maybe, just maybe, I will post additional info/teasers in this topic.....

    BTW guessing is allowed. Don't expect me to deny or confirm :) LOL

    WE will provide a Tactical Pen for a gaw lottery for those who made a motivated guess. (Please! Motivation why do you think your guess is the dubuting knife!)


    GAW CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!

    Okay I'll take a guess - the William Henry S07 frame lock.

    It won Best Knife in 2000 which is roughly 20 years ago. How time flies.

    It looks like something WE would make. It’s a cool design for a 20 year old folder.

    My money is on the WE version of an Emerson Commander!

    ETA: WE has began experimenting with out of pocket opening recently and have done a number of similar recurve blade profiles.

    Also, it was the Blade Show knife of the year 20 years ago!

    Could be Chris Reeve Knives,which won best manufacturing quality 2000.
    I think a SEBENZA with weight reducing pockets and m390 steel would float my boat.

    My guess, Innovative award 1999...WE seems to like integrals, and I don't think I've seen a button lock from them.

    I didn’t figure it’d matter that you’d guessed this knife. I wouldn’t guess any other from that year.

    Additionally, @henkh, my motivation is that it’s an all-metal curvy knife with some colorful aesthetic flair. It seems like WE’s style.

    Lone wolf paul defender, WE doesn’t produce a stylistically similar knife and because I can’t do math.

    Why would CRK & WE do such a collab?

    Well not a sebenza necessarily,but a Chris Reeve collaboration of some kind would be great.WE knife co is tooled up at the moment and
    can produce amazing knives at a reasonable cost.I currently carry a WE Pleroma and am amazed every time I use it.
    Perhaps an integral design from Chris and WE would be well received.
