Today, I would like to feature model #701E, a very interesting folding blade by WE Knife. The ‘#701E’ name may not be an entirely catchy moniker, but what matters a name when it is simply a label, because this blade is much more than four characters, it is a fashion statement as well as a serious tool for survival. It measures at an overall length of 9-inches, with a blade length of 4-inches, at a thickness of 0.16” and made of D2 material at a hardness rating of HRC59-61. The handle is made of G10 material with titanium and stainless steel hardware, which feels very strong, and the blade itself holds an edge very nicely.
The #701E is probably best for casual usage, for your everyday blade needs, but is capable of withstanding heavier use, such as the demanding nature of camping and exploring the wilderness. Though, if you are going into heavy bear country, or are going out far enough that getting lost or stranded is quite possible, then I might suggest a fixed-blade survival knife to compliment this folding knife. Overall, I came away very impressed with the quality, the look and feel, and the craftsmanship invested by WE Knife. The #701E is a cool, modern blade, with a lot of capabilities, and comes complete with a carrying case with soft areas inside, as well as a microfiber cloth and tool to disassemble the handle for cleaning.
