We Knives Scoppio launched in December of 2019 designed by Toni N Tietzel. Word “Scoppio” is a new word for me and I didn’t understood its meaning. So I google it and it turns out that it’s an Italian word means Explosion. (Screen Shot) as Under:
If you closely look at the blade of the knife, you will also see the designer initials TNT on its blade enclosed in Dynamite stick which are clearly visible. (Picture as under)
The We Knives Scoppio 923 is a pocket knife and is appealing to not only knife collectors but its eye catching blade design and shape with a compound grind with comfortable grip is loved by everyone around me when it’s shown to them. Given it’s a pocket knife but it’s not small neither meek looking.

It’s available in two different stone wash finishes like Black Stone Wash Finish and in Satin Stonewash Finish along another variant is color of its Titanium Handles which has 4 variations like Bronze, Grey, Blue and Black.
The Open length i.e. from Knife’s tip to end is 3.63 inches having 4 mm blade thickness with a stonewash finish. The We Knife Scoppio, I’ll be talking here in this review is with blue handle which is 0.51 inches thick or 13mm with total weight of 131 grams meaning this WE Scoppio is lighter than two 70 gram papers.
The blade material of this knife is CPM 20CV stainless steel and as you all know it’s a premium quality steel. As per chemical composition between Bohler M390 steel is almost alike but there is a difference between manufacturing process and CPM 20 CV is made in America.
Summing it up, WE Knife Scoppio is designed by German designer, it’s named in Italian language, the knife blade is made in USA and last, it’s assembled in Yang Jing China. Actually, Yang Jing, China is a home of knife makers just like Solingen in Germany and Maniago in Italy.
WE Knives Scoppio Review
As per our standard review format, after discussing knives’ brand, its background and above all technical specifications we talk about blade of the knife then blade shape, knife handle materials and shape which are vital to discuss and above all its locking and deployment system. Thus, as we have wrote previously about WE Knife 610 which is also a Framelock knife from WE Knives. As, this review is for WE Knives Scoppio which is a drop point blade and yes it’s a pocket knife as well.
Blade of WE Knife Scoppio
As it’s a drop point blade and its ideal for most tasks or utility tasks one can perform. The Blade material is CPM-20CV which is a premium stainless steel material CPM-20CV. WE Knife Scoppio 923 has HRC (Rockwell Hardness) rating 59 between 61 which is great which is considered very high in terms of edge retention meaning, the blade edges with such steel last longer before they need to sharpen again. But one thing one should also consider the harder the more brittle it gets. Given its hard but it slammed against other much harder materials you may find the edge to chip to.
Shape of Blade
As said earlier it’s a drop point blade meaning a big belly but the unconventional shape of Scoppio drop point belly is of my interest than others. Like the spin of the blade is not straight neither gentle not seen in most knives. From its top to bottom, the shape of curves constantly changes and so as the blade thickness.
Compound Grind of WE Knife Scoppio
It’s a compound grind knife and this unique compound grind doesn’t seem to impede cutting tasks but the shape of the blade itself. Like if you are slicing any fruit, the thickness of the blade works like a wedge to slice open. It’s superb for all types of food slicing jobs with ease wherever you go, you do not need any other knife to do these jobs.
Handle of WE Knives Scoppio
It’s a premium knife and I have no doubt in saying it with 6AL4V titanium handle apart from its blade is also of importance to discuss here in this review. For example, there are no screws visible on handle, then “WE logo” hides Scoppio’s pivot and above all the handle scales are flush with “WE Knife Co.’s Logo” and you can even check it as there is no wobble when placed on perfect flat table.
There are also perfect angle cuts on the handle as well, making it a genuine marksmen knife and Toni N Tietzel’s design esthetic is quite apparent and worth mentioning. The finish and precision used in making such knife handles is great and I really liked the Chinese manufacturing quality in it too.
Pocket Clip of We Knife Scoppio
The pocket clip of we knives Scoppio is placed in a predictable curve, it’s nicely done in synergy to handle curves as a whole. I think the inspiration of Toni N Tietzel is on geometrical lines as I see the blade and then its handle and now the same symmetry in placing of its pocket clip.
Ergonomics of WE Knives Scoppio
Well, the ergonomics in handle of this knife are not good but excellent. The shape, height and placement of pocket clip does not create any problem while holding a knife, offering a smooth and comfortable grip. You will not find any hotspots while holding a knife but there is a downside of using titanium handle as it gets slippery when hand get wet but, as most pocket knives are used its optimal.
Thus, it’s hard to use a knife with wet hands because of titanium handle and no scales on it but with rest assured it feels great in hand and it performs well too.
Deployment of WE Knife Scoppio
The flipping action of this knife is smooth and balanced the small flipper tab has a tiny jimping on the front to give little traction. The opening sound or deployment of this knife is noisy as it makes a sound when opened and it may be due to its ceramic bearings.
The locking mechanisms is again makes a clack sound when locked. The sound and such a tight locking mechanism is because of blade mounted stop pin. The main purpose of this stop pin is to prevent the blade from opening too far and keeping the blade in perfect position too. Secondly, if stop pin is placed on the blade it even helps side to side blade wiggle. Normally the stop pin is attached with handle of the knives but in case of WE Scoppio is on the blade.
I find it little hard to open and close not as happy with its deployment and later locking it. But it’s a perfect knife and with its ultra-light blade, superb finish and quality of materials being used its worth every cent being paid for it. Again it’s not for left hand users, so you better know if you are left hander.
Some say or even I have problem when I used in Hot Summers this year, the sweat from my hands make it more slippery than ever, but in general it’s a great knife. The contours or curves on blade, and construction of Knife handle and pocket clip all are in synergy and offer a great comfortable grip. The cutting experience with them is also great.
