The Quiet Carry West is a small, pocketable titanium slip joint knife. Following their success on Kickstarter with the keychain-sized Bandit, Quiet Carry received numerous requests to built a larger pocket knife that is anchored on the same values of quality and precision. The result is the stunning Quiet Carry West.
The West features a non-locking slip joint design which harkens to the classic and timeless knives that rode in the pockets of our forefathers. The benefit of having a non-locking knife is that they are legal in most countries. For those who live in areas with strict knife laws - the West will be ideal for you.
Special attention has been paid to the pivot. While the blade does not lock, it has a strong spring to hold the blade in place in the open position. As long as you use the blade as it's intended, the force generated when cutting will be all that is needed to keep the blade firmly open.
The body is constructed from solid grade 5 titanium with a dark grey bead blasted finish making a both durable and lightweight knife ideal for everyday carry. The blade measures 2.5" - making it convenient and easy to carry - and is made from hardened D2 steel, known for its superb toughness and edge retention.
Every component is made with the tightest tolerances and is meticulously machined with smooth bevelled edges that feel great in hand. Great attention has been paid to the ergonomics, with the notch in the handle being placed at an optimal distance to double as a grip. This allows your index finger fits nicely in the groove for improved grip and handling.
If you're looking for the perfect little pocket knife that leverages on modern materials and technology while retaining a classic appeal - this is the knife for you.
