CROWDFUNDED – If you are a fan of knives, EDC, or both, the WESN Allman Everyday Carry Pocket Knife might be of interest to you. Currently being offered in a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, it’s a mid-sized knife with a slim profile, flipper blade, and locking mechanism that is available with either G10 polymer or Titanium handle. Let’s have a quick look!
What is it?
“The WESN Allman Everyday Carry Pocket Knife is a compact lightweight knife that fits right in your hand. Functional and sleek, the Allman is weighted and designed to be at your side wherever you go.”
Why do I like it?
Billy Chester ran a very successful Kickstarter campaign for his WESN Titanium Micro Blade knife, a campaign which raised almost $220,000, and this knife is now available for order on an ongoing basis. I mention this because it should provide confidence in his ability to deliver a crowdfunded campaign. In addition, the WESN Allman includes many style and design elements that are similar to the WESN Titanium Micro Blade, but with a 2.75″ blade and 3.75″ handle, the WESN Allman not an overly large folding knife. It has a manual-open, ball-bearing assisted “flipper” for quick one-hand deployment of its SV35 steel blade. It is available with either a G10 glass fiber polymer material handle which includes a liner lock, or titanium handle with frame lock. Also includes a milled pocket clip and a lanyard hole.
