WE Pleroma Average Star Review

Dyami M. says...

"This knife is stellar. I am so impressed with its design. It has so many nice details and is very well made. The blade flicks out buttery smooth, and is an instant conversation starter. It also does not invoke fear, like it looks more like an art piece than a knife. The amazing part is it handles perfectly as a knife too! There are a lot of strange knife designs out there, but this one seems like a perfect marriage between form and function. The instant I saw one I knew I had to have it."

WE Practic Average Star Review

Rebecca H. says...

"I picked up the knife a few months back and it’s my regular EDC. Great size, awesome snappy action, and a comfortable feel with no hot spots. I use it daily and it has retained its blade well. My only flaw is the pocket clip is on the small side. I don’t think you can find a better knife at this price point with M390 steel!"

Cody W. says...

"I love this knife. Gorgeous, comfortable in the hand, crazy smooth action, razor sharp from the factory. If I have to choose one slight complaint, it’s that the frame lock is narrow and a little sharp, so playing with it constantly like I do will start to make your thumb a little sore after a while."

WE Deacon Average Star Review

Matt C. says...

"Grabbed one of these recently and I have to say I love it! Smooth action, detent is great but not overly stiff. Pocket clip is good, lets just enough of the handle stick out that it makes it easy to access. Its what I have come to expect from WeKnives. Highly recommend for a smaller pocket blade that can be carried daily or when needing to slightly dress up."

WE Aeterna Average Star Review

Shawn F. says...

"I ordered this knife the day that it was released. The fit and finish is always on point with We Knives. This design is very Elijah Isham. The blade is thin and very slicey. The middle flicking action is good, but the flipping action required some follow-through. I would recommend this knife if you like the design and want a semi-useful art-style knife."
