Description: Based on the Future by Tashi Bharucha the Star Boy Flipper is a more compact titanium framelock with a faux-integral construction that keeps the clean lines of the Future while helping to reduce production cost. As always Reate's fit, finish and operation is flawless.
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 Star Boy Flipper features a blade made from stonewashed RWL-34 stainless steel. RWL-34 is a premium powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by ERASTEEL in Söderfors, Sweden. Because it is made from rapidly solidified powders, the microstructure of the steel is much more uniform. This gives the steel much higher strength and resistance to cracks and chips. The blade can be easily deployed using the ambidextrous flipper and it has smooth action thanks to the bearing system pivot.
The machined titanium handle has a sturdy frame lock and a bead blasted finish. Two solid slabs of titanium are held together using Torx construction giving the appearance of an integral design. The nearly seamless transition is performed flawlessly. The handle is shaped to be comfortable even when choking up on the blade for precision cutting tasks. A lanyard post fits into the back. 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.
