King Of The Hill
Following intense speculation following the prototype - the Reate K-1, designed by Solo Jack, is finally here and it's a stunner. The Reate K-1 pulls out all the stops and stands alongside the formidable Steelcraft Series from Todd Begg as one of the highest quality, ultra-premium folder in the market today. If you could only have one knife for the rest of your life - this is definitely one for consideration.
The K-1 is Reate Knives coming into its own and pulling out all the stops. For the first time, Reate is using RWL-34 stainless steel which is made by Damasteel Company. What’s unique is the addition of Molybdenum and Vanadium which gives the RWL-34 even greater corrosion resistance, hardness, and strength. The RWL-34 drop point blade steel features a brushed satin finish, a deep hollow grind, and a crowned spine for comfort.
The handles and hardware are no slouch either. Internally lightened, the titanium handles are inlaid with long strips of carbon fiber that not only reduces the weight but adds visual interest and intrigue. It's contoured or chamfered to prevent hotspots and comes complete with a replaceable lock bar overtravel arrestor, Todd Begg ceramic ball titanium pocket clip, and half-length titanium backspacer.
Taking things a step further, every Reate K-1 goes through the Freeze Edging Skill process which enhances cutting performance. Normally, edging is operated on a high-speed running grinding wheel which produces a very high temperature. The Freeze Edging Skill counteracts this problem through a constant cooling system which contributes to increased hardness and durability of the blade.
If you were ever hesitant on getting a Reate, the K-1 eliminates every excuse with its formidable quality and performance. Most impressively, the Reate K-1 embraces the latest innovations and technology and combines them with old world craftsmanship and attention to details. The end result is a truly spectacular ultra-premium folder that elevates (and shakes up) the entire industry as a whole.
