The K-3 Flipper from Reate Knives pushes the boundaries of traditional knife form without sacrificing any function or performance. The clean, geometric lines of the handle are inlaid with beautiful Carbon Fiber and are subtly milled and contoured for excellent ergonomic comfort. The modern interpretation of a classic drop point blade is made from high performance CTS-204P blade steel. The standard for Reate fit and finish is exceptional.

The item is brand new direct from Reate Knives. 

The Blade: CTS-204P is a high wear-resistance stainless steel, that delivers some of the best edge retention and corrosion resistance on the market. The saber ground blade gives a good combination of strength and slicing performance. A long swedge enhances piercing performance and gives a creates a scoop on the spine, a solid platform for power cuts. The milled pocket with holes adds a nice visual element. A ceramic ball bearing pivot gives the K-3 silky smooth deployment via the index flipper. 

The Handle: The K-3 is very comfortable in the hand with an ergonomic design, milled details and light weight Carbon Fiber inlays. This knife looks fantastic while retaining an excellent functional design. A milled titanium backspacer with heavy jimping gives some traction in the hand while a 3D titanium pocket clip with ceramic tension ball allows for secure carry with fast deployment. The clip is tip-up right hand only. Polished titanium hardware complete the K-3 and the titanium frame lock delivers smooth, solid operation thanks to the steel insert which doubles as over travel protection. 

Ships with a zipper pouch, microfiber cloth and baggie.
