Description: The New Torrent Flipper from Reate Knives offers a major update to the heavy duty Torrent folder. New manufacturing techniques combined with an update to materials and finish really create a top-tier everyday carry knife with flipping action and manufacturing tolerances on par with the best in the industry.
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 New Torrent Flipper features a blade made from differentially finished RWL-34 stainless steel. The blade is satin finished in the grinds and stonewashed in the flats to emphasize the clean grinds. 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 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 pivot system.
The machined titanium handle has a sturdy frame lock and a dark stonewash finish. Machine texturing on the flats of the handle provide plenty of traction. All screws and hardware are blue anodized. The handle is shaped to be comfortable even when choking up on the blade for precision cutting tasks. A lanyard hole is set at the back of the handle. The stonewash titanium pocket clip with ceramic retention ball is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
This knife comes with a zipper storage pouch, a small pocket pouch, a Reate patch, and a cleaning cloth.
