Knife maker WESN has just let someone transform their non-locking slip-joint pocket knife into an heirloom-worthy knife. WESN has invited artist Daren Thomas Magee aka Real Fun, Wow! to infuse his art style into the Henry to result in this: WESN The Real Fun Henry & Co.
The Real Fun Henry pocket knife features an original art G10 handle with titanium accents and a durable Sandvik 14c28n blade steel. It has a closed length of 3 inches (7.62 cm) and opens up to 5.35 inches (13.59 cm), and weighs 1.60 oz (45g). Those are not it.
The Real Fun Henry is not just a knife. It is not just a collectible knife. It is a lifestyle. It comes as a kit that includes The Real Fun Henry pocket knife, an original design, a matching bandana made of organic cotton in partnership with Bandits Bandanas, and a custom enamel pin.
There’s an exclusive custom WESN x RFW sticker too. Wrapping up the kit is an authentication card and matching packaging.
The significance of this knife is beyond its heirloom or museum worthiness; it is WESN’s first knife handmade in the U.S.A. The knife was designed in California and made in Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A.
The WESN The Real Fun Henry & Co. sells for US$165 and it is a limited, single run collab which means if it is sold out, it is sold out. That said, if you want one, you’d act on it fast.
