WE Knife Co. 617B Liner Lock Flipper Knife Black G-10 (3.8" Satin)

This 617B model is outfitted with a black G-10 handle and a satin finished blade made from D2 steel. The 617 offers the first G-10 folder from We Knife Co., for those who prefer a more tactile grip than their standard titanium handles. It has a stylish harpoon style blade made from ultra-tough D2 tool steel. Ceramic ball bearings and an integral blade flipper provide silky smooth blade deployment with a push of the finger. Titanium pocket clip, backspacer and hardware further solidify the design.


  • G-10 handles provide a tactical grip in diverse environmental conditions.
  • Ceramic ball bearings and blade flipper for effortless blade deployment.
  • Slim titanium pocket clip offers a comfortable pocket carry option for EDC.

Great flipper
Nick P. on May 18, 2018

You can't beat this flipper for the price. Great balance and tolerances.

Phenomenal performance/value ratio...
Matthew D. on Feb 6, 2018

I mean, really? Yes, D2 is not a "super steel", but it's really darned solid. The build quality is just top-notch; I have way more expensive knives that have neither the fit and finish nor the buttery action of this sexy knife. The modified harpoon point adds some flair and interest to the knife, as well as increased tip strength, for the "pierce a car door for sport" crowd. Overall, I just can't think of a down side to this knife. WE is definitely producing stuff that should scare the fertilizer out of ZT, Benchmade, and Spyderco. You just can't go wrong with this knife, if you're in the market for something fairly big, stabby, and exceptionally well-made.

Well worth the money!
Kurt S. on Jan 23, 2017

Really pleased with the fit/ finish and action of this piece. Definitely has a mid-tech feel without the mid-tech price. Blade is dead center and sharp, flips like a champ, and detent (on all WE Knives for that matter) is first class. Liners are black, so they fade into the G10...nice touch. Great value, and love the harpoon blade...not too many folks can pull off that look and WE has done it very well.
