Challenging The Status Quo
The Endeavour is a special collaboration between renowned knife designer, Liong Mah and Reate Knives - who has been putting out some of the best blades of late. Designed as a utilitarian everyday tactical folder, it’s executed to perfection and is guaranteed to perform and please.
What sets the Endeavour apart is how it incorporates a series of new and innovative features. It is the first knife to feature orange peel textured hardware for improved grip and a distinct backspacer-less design.
The ergonomic handles are made from two half-inch billets of titanium with contoured edges with internal lightening pockets. The backspacer is integrated into each half of the handle along with an integrated lanyard hole and jimping, this results in a clean and refined presentation side with no handling hotspots. And continuing with the hidden hardware theme, the titanium clip is blind screwed from the interior of the frame.
The 3.75" blade is made from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with hand-rubbed satin flats and machine flat ground satin bevels. As a testament to Liong’s dedication to quality, the steel was shipped all the way from Speciality Metals in Texas to Reate Knives and back again. This ensures that the highest quality steel is used and that each piece is uniform in terms of grain structure and hardness.
Deployment via the compact flipper tab or the 3D milled slot in the blade is unerringly smooth and snappy. Additionally, the flipper tab disappears into the frame when deployed for enhanced handling.
The Endeavour represents the best of this golden age of gear. Here we have an innovative knife design that pushes the boundary and is superbly executed to perfection. What would normally be exclusive to the realm of exorbitantly priced custom knives is now within our reach, so get your hands on the Endeavour now, and prepared to be blown away.
