The Red E WL cuts within the line of the law in most of the world. Grab this crafty EDC slipjoint folding knife and be ready to go. In style.

Aspiring Danish knife manufacturer Willumsen Copenhagen has recently launched a cutting-edge knife on Kickstarter, which promises to combine wicked modern design and excellent functionality. Named the “Red E – World Legal” or “Red E WL” for short, it is optimized for EDC (Everyday Carry) with a folded length of just 4”, a practical wide blade and a safe slipjoint mechanism. It is perfectly balanced between function, design, and legality.

The 70mm blade is made of Sandvik 14C28N, a martensitic stainless chromium steel with a chemistry optimized for high quality professional knife applications. It is ready for very high demands on edge sharpness, edge stability and corrosion resistance. It is secured in a textured G10 handle for a smooth and comfortable grip. The shape of the blade combined with the close-control finger placement makes it an optimal and flexible work knife.

“I want to bring great design into the hands of as many people as possible, without compromising on the quality or functionality. That is my dream, that everyone will have one of my knives in their pocket at a reasonable cost,” stated Mikkel Willumsen, designer of the Red E – World Legal. When Mr. Willumsen is not designing production knives, he handcrafts amazing custom knives.

The Red E – World Legal is ambidextrous and easy to use for left-hand users. To make it even more flexible, the deep pocket clip can be moved to the other side of the knife.

Emphasizing the World Legal aspect of this knife, Willumsen Copenhagen states that the Red E WL has been designed with legal compliance in mind, with these following features:

  • With a 70mm (2.7”) blade, the Red E WL is long enough for your cutting needs, without breaching the common legal limitations on blade length
  • Slipjoint mechanism, complies with the regulations which forbid a lockable folding knife
  • Firm three-step opening action which complies with regulations that require 2-handed opening of a folding knife 

Other significant features of Red E – World Legal EDC Slipjoint knife:

  • Lifetime warranty for original buyer on production flaws
  • Firm and comfortable resistance even when fully opened
  • Reversible deep pocket clip
  • The waterproof, smooth, and comfortable G10 handle
  • Comes with a Willumsen Copenhagen velcro patch

The knife is available in two variants: The all black “Red E WL Midnight” and the “Red E WL Stone Olive” with stonewashed blade and olive drape handle.

“The Red E – World Legal is something you have been looking for. It is intelligently designed with a keen blade, while the close-control finger placement makes the knife very flexible and optimal in use. With Mr. Willumsen as our talented designer, we have experience with production knives. The Red E WL is our latest and most refined model, ready for mass production after a warm reception of our prototypes in testing. Hence this Kickstarter campaign. Your generous support will enable us to bring the Red E – World Legal to the world. This knife is more than just a tool. It is a lifetime companion of Nordic Quality.” – Willumsen Copenhagen.
