Description

The K-1 Flipper from Reate Knives is a masterpiece in form, function and finish. Its body is sleek with clean lines flowing into the futuristic-looking, harpoon-tip M390 blade. This version is outfitted with checkered Carbon Fiber inlays over bronze anodized and tumbled titanium with a bi-directional satin blade.

The item is brand new direct from Reate Knives. 

The Blade: Produced by Bohler Uddeholm, M390 is a high performance steel that provides some of the highest levels of wear and corrosion resistance available in a blade steel. The blade is fashioned in a beautifully upswept slicer profile with a subtle harpoon style tip. It's amazingly sharp thanks to David's freeze edging technique. During grinding, the temperature on the edge is closely controlled which helps maintain the hardness after heat treating. This process means the sharpness and durability of the blade are assured helping bring the performance of the material to it's highest potential. The satin finish, vertical on the grinds and horizontal on the flats, along with the crowned spine create a stunning package. The integral flipper operation, blade seating and ceramic bearing system are all class leading as Reate is well known for. 

The Handle: The in-hand feel of the handle is phenomenal. It melts like butter in your hand. The handles are contoured 6Al4V titanium with a bronze anodized and tumbled finish and checkered carbon fiber inlays. The peaks of the titanium are satin finished to highlight the carbon fiber and exhibit the precision Reate is capable of. The interior of the titanium scale and frame lock have milled out pockets reducing weight and giving the K1 a very balanced feel. A rounded 50% titanium back spacer with Ti hardware brings the K-1 together. The frame lock has a steel insert for silky smooth operation and doubles as over travel prevention. A single position tip up Ti pocket clip is attached for tip-up, right-hand only carry and features a ceramic ball bearing insert for smooth transition in and out of your pocket. 

Ships with a zippered storage pouch, microfiber cloth & bag, Velcro patch and extra hardware.
