Description

This super-special Blade HQ Exclusive Banter model has a natural G-10 handle and a black stonewashed CPM-20CV blade, liners, and hardware.

Fans of Blade HQ can all relate to the feeling of excitement that immediately follows Ben Petersen greeting you with his iconic "What iiissss up guys!!?!" at the beginning of Knife Banter. Ben is off to new adventures now, and we miss him dearly, but a little piece of him will live on in the knife world with the Banter! Ben designed the We Knife Co. Banter to meet his exacting specifications; a deep carry pocket clip with recessed screws, a blade that passes his finger test, easy one-hand operation, and a price accessible to a cheap sucker.

Features:
  • A simple, effective, and non-threatening design that is perfect for EDC.
  • Gently textured G-10 handles that provide grip but won't chew up your pockets
  • Smooth and precise action for fast and easy deployment
  • A spear point, CPM-20CV blade to maximize cutting performance, edge retention, toughness, and ease of maintenance

Heavier than my other Banter by about .5oz with a thicker blade. Action wasn't quite as smooth but we're really splitting hairs here because it's still great. A small shot of oil and the action took off. Highly recommend.
Great Knife!

Love the knife overall. Great size and action. All star materials used. Only gripe is that the liner lock is a bit uncomfortable to use; almost sharp. If it wasnít coated black, I would look to file the teeth down. Stops you from you constantly opening and closing it, I guess (no fidget guarantee!).
Not as Jade as shown. But awesome!!

Love the knife. Super smooth action, very sharp out of the box, very well built. My only disappointment was that it was very pale in color. I was expecting more of a Jade green than the pale green Jade i got. Still love the knife just not as shown here.
Great knife

Not too big, not too small. It's just right! Great action out of the box and the 20CV came shaving sharp out of the box. I didn't expect to like this as much as I do, but this knife lives up to the hype so much so that I bought another.
Fricken Awesome!!

Umm super awesome knife!! Great purchase for medium hands, glides on barrings, swift opening! The banter definitely gives you something talk about! Natural G-10 gives the knife a whole vibe!! I have only recommendation: a compression lock button! It would make the knife that more fidgety! This is a thicc piece of cpm 20cv that yields to nothing!! Straight ahead!! Choo Choo, get out the way boxes!!

Perfect EDC knife -- not too much knife or not too little knife. No complaints, or issues. Will be buying another color ASAP.

Very happy with this EDC. I finally have found a knife that can compete with my Benchmade Mini Freek Limited Edition. Plus itís cheaper then the 565 special edition. This WE Banter comes with a centered, gimped, thick, insanely sharp CPM20CV(YES CPM20CV) steel. Just the right length for everyday cuts. For the price it smashes the Bugout. Better steel, thicker and better handle materials than Bugout. Iím a Benchmade guy. But I have to give credit where credit is due. The Natural G-10 handle feels and fits perfect in my hand. The scales are super thick and feel sturdy when deploying blade. I love the perfect weight of the Banter. The sound and smooth action is satisfying. Did I mention it has a deep carry pocket clip? Lol The deep carry pocket clip is very nice. I love this knife and for the price you have to collect 1 too. Thank you HQ I will be carrying it a lot. Sorry Benchmade.
Another Banter, yes please!

Love the Natural G10 with the Black SW Blade. Amazing action just as in the original design. I enjoy the thicker blade stock with the 20CV steel just to make justifying buying another knife to the wife easier :D.

All in all 10/10 just as in the original version. Spear point, lightning action, deep carry clip with recessed clip and screws and under 3 inches for those with laws that regulate that.

Ben, keep up the great work!
Great, but heavier and thicker than original.

This is a great blade and I love the look and feel of the natural G-10 and the 20CV upgrade. However, I immediately noticed that it was considerably thicker and heavier than its original Banter counterpart (one of my favorite knives). The thicker 20CV blade also makes the action a bit rougher and slower. Still an all-around a great knife. But if the sleek, compact, and light design is what attracted you to the original Banter (like me), this may not me be the knife for you.
Amazing EDC
