Wayfarer Compact

Wayfarer Compact

Apr, 13 2017
Background
The Wayfarer Compact was released in September 2015 as a follow up to our larger Wayfarer model. We received a lot of requests for a small version and decided to go with a robust 3.5" blade size. We carried over everything we learned when building the Wayfarer but in a more EDC-friendly size. A cutout in the blade was added to allow non-flipper deployment.
Construction
We use zero CNC machining to make the Wayfarer. After cutting blade and liner outlines, everything is done by hand or on a manual mill. Wayfarers are full custom and are built one at a time by our expert team in Visalia, CA. The blades are hand-ground and handles are always contoured.
Ordering
There are tens of millions of ways to build a Wayfarer Compact. Please take a look at the gallery below for some inspiration. To order one, fill out the build form (coming soon) or reach out to us by e-mail with what you had in mind. At the moment we are using CTS-204P blade steel (American-made M390 equivalent). The liners are always titanium, but everything else can be customized. If you have a desired theme or favorite material, let us know and we can suggest a build that you're guaranteed to like.
