After years of crafting folding knives, WESN finally has a fixed-blade pocket knife and it is called The WESN Bornas. The WESN Bornas has the distinct look of WESN that fans will immediately recognize.
Made for the urban wilderness explorer and tradesman alike, this latest blade from the Swedish pocket knives and EDC specialist has none of the bulk typical with fixed blades knife.
It is compact, and lightweight, thus making it a true everyday carry. The WESN Bornas is a full tang knife that has a 2.75-inch (7 cm) S35VN steel blade with a tang that measures 3.1 inches (7.8 cm), sandwiched in a choice of rosewood or G10 handle aka the scales.
Whichever type of handle material you choose, it comes standard with a lanyard hole, allowing it to be worn as a neck knife.
When not in use, the knife’s blade is sheathed in the included vegetable-tanned leather sheath – sourced and handcrafted in Sweden – to protect the blade and the user.
Speaking of which of made in Sweden, the Bornas also marks the first WESN knife to be made in Sweden.
