Quiet Carry’s Kickstarter video has no narration, text overlays, or fancy music. It’s not like designer Bryce Alexander doesn’t know how to do any of that, it’s just that he doesn’t have to. A simple 1:34 second long video showing his newest titanium knives, the West and Strand, is enough to sell just about anyone – and that’s everything we love about Quiet Carry.
At first look, what stands out about both of these knives is their design. The handles – offered in either black PVD, bead blasted, and satin finishes – are wonderfully understated and draw a stark contrast with the D2 steel blade. Locking and opening mechanisms differ between the two knives; the larger of the two, the Strand has a frame lock and a thumb stud for flipping open, while the slimmer West has a slip-joint design and a nail-nick opening design. What doesn’t change between the two knives is their quality and attention to detail. Price start at $109.
