Description: The Reate Knives Wave Flipper is creating tidal waves throughout the knife industry. This compact, but heavy duty knife is perfect for any adventure -- whether outdoors or in the city.
Reate Knives designs and builds its high quality knives with immaculate fit and finish. The founder of Reate, David Deng, is a long time knife enthusiast with a background in mechanical design and manufacturing. Reate uses only the best blade steels gathered from around the world and never compromises on materials. Reate is changing the way the industry looks at knives made in China.
This Wave features a full flat ground stonewashed blade made from M390 stainless steel, a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it due to its high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. Its unique powder metallurgical process promotes a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties, making M390 a popular steel used in surgical cutting instruments and in applications requiring a high finish. It offers excellent corrosion resistance due to its high concentration of chromium. The blade can be easily deployed using the ambidextrous flipper and it has smooth action thanks to the bearing system pivot.
The stonewashed titanium handle features a sturdy framelock and is machine textured to offer great traction. Checkered titanium inlays have been anodized to provide a steadfast grip that really improves the look of the folder. A notched titanium backbar provides traction when pulling the folder from the pocket and provides a slot to add a lanyard. The titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Each knife comes with a zipper storage pouch, a small pocket pouch, a Reate patch, and a cleaning cloth.
