WESN — makers of some of the sleekest everyday carry essentials in the world — recently unleashed The Salma via a Kickstarter campaign. It's the most compact knife yet from the brand, tapping into their Scandinavian heritage with a Sandvik 14c28N steel blade paired to a handle measuring just .25" thin. The result is gorgeous and minimalistic, with an über-satisfying feel in the hand whether you opt for the lightweight titanium or wooden scales.

Estimated to deliver in Oct. of this year, early backers of the blade will be getting a massive discount if they back the project with a pre-order right here. And though we generally shy away from Kickstarter projects of any kind, we feel extremely confident about supporting WESN and their team thanks to the track record and presence they have in the category.
