Bigger! Better! Banter!
Here it is - the big version of the WE Knife Banter.
If you're interested in knives, you can't get around him: for a long time, Ben Peterson from Blade HQ was a true institution on YouTube. His videos were not just product presentations, but had a completely unique and entertaining style. After his end at Blade HQ, it was a short while style around Ben. However, he was not idle. Together with WE Knife, he developed the Banter, a pocket knife that is absolutely tailored to Ben's needs and comes with a few clever features.
Firstly, there's the size: perhaps you remember Ben's requirement that a knife be no longer than his outstretched index finger? To test this, Ben likes to put his finger out the back of the blade and see if he can reach the tip. Nevertheless, there are of course users who simply like a slightly larger knife. Therefore, with the Big Banter, the same design is available in a large version. The handle made of G10 is very comfortable in the hand thanks to its unexciting, universal contour and can be used in a variety of positions. In the back you will find a lanyard hole, through which you can thread, for example, a 550 paracord as a lanyard. While the show side is made of a G10 or Micarta shell with an embedded liner, the opposite scale has a steel liner, which also provides a super secure liner lock.
The genius here is that WE Knife have chosen such a thin grind that the Banter is an incredible cutting devil. The CPM 20CV blade just flies through the cut material and is up to everyday cutting tasks in EDC. Ceramic ball bearings provide a smooth opening of the blade, which gives the Banter a certain playfulness.
Together with the Deep Carry clip, which allows the knife to disappear discreetly in your pocket, you get with the WE Knife Banter an impressively versatile EDC pocket knife that turns out to be an excellent companion in everyday life.

Civivi KI-V Natural G10
Ostap Hel Design
handle made from G10 Blade is made from 9cr18MoV
When Ostap Hel is in the game, things get exciting. If you've been following us for a while or even listening to our podcast, you may have noticed that we are absolute fans of Ostap's designs. So it was clear that the Ki-V definitely had to come into our program.
Here you get an EDC pocket knife that is truly a mini EDC. The Ki-V is Ostap Hel's first collaboration with Civivi and is intended as a small office pocket knife for the lightest everyday cutting tasks. The lack of a lock also makes it portable almost anywhere, so you should basically never have a problem with this little pocket knife. The design of the knife is based on the classic Kiridashi knives of Japan and features a highly modern look despite the historical background. To prevent the blade from simply falling back when open, a liner with your detent ball presses down on the blade root, creating a sort of flip-joint mechanism. The front flipper and ball bearings make for a lot of fun in the office and annoyed colleagues. For the blade steel, Civivi relies on the proven 9CR18MOV, which can be easily resharpened and is extremely rust-resistant. The handle is made out of natural g10.
The story behind the name of the model is interesting: The Ki stands for "Kiridashi" while the V alludes to the many, V-shaped angles of the knife. By the way, the knife is pronounced "Kiwi", which together with the manufacturer's name makes for a funny combination with quite a few Is. By the way, Ostap Hel got the idea for the name while playing Cyberpunk 2077 - here, one of the main characters is simply called "V".
So if you're looking for a cool nerd knife or need something very compact for the office, the KI-V from Civi would definitely be worth considering.
