WE Knives is a knife company based out of China that has been at the forefront of the production knife game for a while now. It’s a very high-end brand, but the company also has two other imprints, both at more affordable price points: CIVIVI and Sencut. At the BladeShow in Atlanta, I was struck by Sencut’s futuristic designs. Confession time: I’m a “stick with the devil you know” kind of guy. The guy that orders the same burger and fries no matter what’s on special. But at that show in Atlanta, I took a look at the Bronte front flipper from Sencut and decided to take a leap of faith. The Bronte is the first front flipper I have ever had—and it has been a great ambassador for the front flipper style. The blade shape and the feel of the knife is out of this world. The handle design is simple but just feels so right. I love big choppers, and this knife is shaped just like a big chopper, only slim and sleek.
Sencut’s Bronte front flipper has checked all the boxes for me. Once you figure out how to correctly open it the action is amazingly fast and smooth. The micarta handles are comfortable and grippy. The blade shape is amazing; it’s like a sheepsfoot style and a bowie decided to hook up outside of a burger shack and have a son named Zack with anger issues—look at that aggressive point!
The knife has been at another level compared to the other knives I have carried to work. The Bronte cuts through cardboard like butter and makes opening 500 boxes a day a swift, simple chore. The blade steel is 9Cr18MoV, which is a great steel for corrosion resistance and sharpenability. If you don’t like the color of the micarta or the regular stonewashed finish, they have a couple more options for you to choose from, like grey or red micarta or a black stonewashed finish.
This knife’s greatest quality, in my opinion, is its comfort in the hand while also not taking up too much activity space in your EDC rig. With this knife in your pocket, you have plenty of room to carry your phone, wallet, or a limited-edition Pirates of the Caribbean Jack Sparrow compass that came with a pirate hat and a jar of dirt (scurvy sold separately).
Johnny Depp’s Keith Richards impression aside, the Bronte front flipper by Sencut made me happy I got out of my knife rut. For around $50, you get a good quality knife for a price that is a little less than 18 Happy Meals from McDonald’s. After everything I have done with this knife it has stayed sharp, smooth, and together (there isn’t much more you can ask for).
