WE Knife has won over many EDCers and knife enthusiasts for their excellent production knives coming out of China. It’s not uncommon to find an impressive mix of premium materials, unique and visually striking design language, and top-notch fit and finish from a WE Knife product. And more impressive is the value, as these knives tend to exceed expectations at their given price points. In this quick round-up we’re highlighting a few of our favorite upcoming releases in 2021 from WE Knife.


With its blade geometry, mix of materials, and heavy duty construction, the Thug from WE Knife is a knife that means business. This Matthew Christensen design makes its presence known with its stout silhouette punctuated with a 2.625“ tanto blade in a premium CPM-20CV steel. Its traditional Japanese tanto blade geometry features a beefy, upswept curve to its point, giving plenty of usable cutting edge for its size while keeping its strong piercing capabilities for tactical applications. The Thug deploys with dual thumb studs, locking into a sturdy titanium frame lock. Its carbon fiber handle reduces weight and brings some classy flourish to a functionally tactical knife.

This slim gent’s knife is another work of art from Justin Lundquist, sporting a sleek minimalist design. Unlike most knives on the market right now yet true to Lundquist’s design language, the Eidolon deploys with a front flipper and secures into a liner lock. Its CPM-20CV blade features long and thin proportions, with a 2.9“ overall length in a flat ground, drop point shape that’s excellent for slicing. The letter-opener shape, discreet gray G10 handle, and overall slim design gives it an ”executive“ feeling that’ll fit right into a dressy EDC for the office.

Miscreant 3.0

WE Knife brings an elegant Brad Zinker custom design to production with the Miscreant, keeping its signature long and thin handle with unique skeletonization throughout. Its CPM-20CV drop point, flat ground blade offers a just-right 2.75“ length and excellent shape for general EDC tasks. Deployment is easy thanks to a rear flipper tab and ceramic bearings, while a reinforced titanium frame lock secures it in place. The handle is just as impressive as the blade on this knife, with stylish skeletonized cutouts throughout to save weight and provide visual interest. Fans of Zinker’s customs and work with Boker Plus should definitely keep the Miscreant 3.0 on their radar this year.
