WE Knife Company has been around the game for a long time but has only recently begun manufacturing their own designs. They started by manufacturing OEM designs for other companies and have gained a reputation in the industry as a name you can rely on. Their products are innovative, beautiful, and extremely well-built so you can rest assured you're getting a supreme quality product at a great price. Brazen is the perfect name for this bold tactical folder. Like the Keen Nader, this in-house design is here to compete and maybe take over the tactical folding knife market. Add in the value this guy presents and you have a clear winner in our books.
The first and most recognizable part of this design is the Sandvik 14C28N drop point blade. It's big, it's broad, and it's flat ground for toughness. The action is very pleasing as the size of the blade, the detent, and the caged ceramic bearings make it buttery smooth using the studs or flipper tab. This tab acts as a finger guard preventing you from accidentally sliding forward onto the blade when thrusting, stabbing, or slicing. The ergonomic handle has a solid feel provided by the stainless steel liners and we don't think it gets any more comfortable than this. Add in a reversible deep carry pocket clip and backspacer with lanyard slot built-in and you have a tactical knife built for anyone. Finally, it's priced for everyone and each variant might just be cooler than the last.

I'm really enjoying the Civivi range of knives. This Brazen is now my go-to for EDC and on a recent hike it went seamless from cutting cord, to slicing steak to removing thorns - retaining an excellent edge. The flipper open action is smooth and reliable and the knife sits comfortably in hand. Really enjoying this one.
