WE Knife OAO, the Blade That’s “One and Only” in Style

The WE Knife OAO (One And Only) is a statement piece that combines functionality, craftsmanship, and elegance. From its sleek design to its high-quality materials—it uses the highest tier 20CV steel for the blade and a combination of titanium and fat carbon inlays for its handle—every aspect of the OAO reflects meticulous attention to detail. Designed with precision by Tashi Bharucha, it features a robust drop-point blade that deploys smoothly with a flick of the flipper tab. The integral frame lock mechanism demonstrates WE’s machining prowess while ensuring reliability and safety during use, and the addition of a lanyard hole adds practicality. It was one of our favorites this year at SHOT Show 2024, and you can see our hands-on video below.

Kuoe’s Old Smith Watch Evolves with Contemporary Charm

Kuoe is a micro-brand watch manufacturer located in Kyoto, Japan. They specialize in making vintage-style automatic mechanical watches featuring reliable Japanese movements. Because of the vintage style, their watches tend to run small, but this year, they have updated their Old Smith watch to a more contemporary 39mm case diameter. The new Old Smith retains the “Dirty Dozen” classic British military style of the original, with bold Roman number markers and a railroad track to denote the minutes.  What’s hard to see, even in Kuoe’s own product photos, is the unique paper-like dial on the watch.

Where the original used a Seiko NH35 movement inside, the new watch comes with a Seiko NH38. Either way, you get a reliable made-in-Japan automatic movement with hand-winding and hacking stop seconds. A screw-down crown helps the watch maintain 100-meter water resistance. New to this model is that it comes with a domed sapphire glass, which was optional in the original, and it comes with two pull-through straps to meet the new, larger, 20mm lug width.
