Smaller, lighter, with 100% more finger choil! The Civivi Baby Banter is the kid sister to the Original WE Banter with less chunk, more finesse, and that utilitarian vibe that the masses love.
The Baby Banter is a small pocket knife designed for every day carry. The pivot mechanism runs on caged ceramic bearings for silky smooth opening, and the handle is a perfectly textured Goldilocks G10-- not too rough, not too smooth.
Plus, Southpaws rejoice! The deep carry pocket clip has recessed screws, and it's two way reversible for right or left handed, tip up carry. The thumb stud is titanium and ambidextrous.
The goal with this design was to build a knife that is at home in any pocket anywhere. For instance, women's pockets are obscenely small. The Baby Banter fits. Or toss it in the coin pocket (5th pocket) of your jeans. It's the type of knife that doesn't scare coworkers-- no one will remotely mistake it for an aggressive tool. Plus, at a 2.4" blade it's below the legal limit for EDC in Chicago and Boston. (Check your local laws. This is not legal advice. We won't bail you out of the county jail.)

If you'd like to save a few bucks or find free shipping out there, feel free to shop the other dealers that carry the knife. They're all fantastic, and Ben receives a royalty for every knife sold anywhere-- so, you're still supporting the Ben biz, which is super cool of you.
