Day one buy when those hit the market. Thx!
Titanium anodizing is fairly simple. Pretty sure mine will change colors a few times. Some of my Massdrop/WE knives have changed skin color a dozen times. But since just about every Ti knife I own now is some funky color, I'm actually going to enjoy the "plain 'ole gray" for a while. But will admit that gold tone is a really great fit for this knife.
New releases now available for our dealers to order.
#901 Deacon, #902 Gentry slipjoint & new line WE Ktichen Lifestyle the first is a Gyuko Chef's knife.
What's the blade steel on the slippies?

That's cool you'll be making kitchen cutlery.
Gentry - slip joint fans will like the thin blade stock. Great design too. Not sure about the recurve though.
Does the kitchen knife come with a sheath of some kind?
I am curious as to why would you need a sheath for a kitchen knife? They aren’t usually carried.
I mean i'd prefer to not have it laying around the kitchen.
I'm not DrRollin, but when buying a kitchen knife individually, it may not have a spot in a current block. Tossing a nice knife in a drawer without a protective cover is not a great idea. Whether you call it a sheath (not necessarily for carry), or a slip cover, or protective sleeve, etc.... Appreciated nonetheless. And possibly expected at certain price levels. Heck, even Kershaw provides a fairly nice plastic slip with their low end kitchen knives when purchased individually.
Exactly. I wasnt talking like a belt sheath or anything lol, sorry for that confusion. Just something to hold the knife.
I see. It’s for storage. Plastic edge protectors are widely available.
True, but any knife like this should probably come with one without having to go out of my way to buy it separately.
The kitchen knives are delivered with a very nice presentation box.
That’s doesn’t sound convenient for storing the knife in the kitchen.
Well that depends of course. In my kitchen I have a wooden block with cutouts for knives. All original knives are replaced with knives I really like and use.
While there are no WE knives in this image I had this block custom made for my some of my Japanese kitchen knives
I like the Isham Arrakis a lot. It is only a pity that the version with the blue handle has a black blade. A stonewash finish which matches the grey titanium in the handle would bring this knife optical more in balance.
Also a pity that there are no carbon versions....
I like the Arrakis a lot as well. It reminds me of the Eschaton but fixes the things that kept me from buying that one, primarily the cutting edge of that knife. I think this one will be a winner.
I am also really excited to see WE release the Bishop. The traditional blade shape with good belly to it is going to make a fabulous user. More than likely I will pick up one of these as well.
