WESN Allman Folding Knife

Dec 19, 2018

Category: Gear

Up until about a year ago, we had never heard of WESN. That is, until they released their titanium keychain knife, which raised a monstrous $218,306 on Kickstarter (not bad for a $40 blade), and suddenly they were on the entire EDC community’s radar. Then, as mysteriously as they arrived, the brand went quiet — until now, with the release of their 2nd offering, the Allman folding knife.

If this knife looks a lot like their initial offering, you’d be spot on. It seems WESN has taken the design language from their keychain knife and pared it into a larger everyday carry-friendly version. They’ve even carried over some of the materials, with a titanium handle option complete with a sturdy frame lock. Of course, if you’re not into metal grips, there’s also a liner lock version with G10 scales. And both options come with a stout S35VN steel blade, which might look a bit odd when compared to more traditional knives, but actually serves to help increase blade strength and reduce chipping. Sign up on WESN’s site for updates on when the knife will go on sale.
