Reate - an independent brand synonymous with the construction and production of unparalleled knife quality. Its founder, David Deng, a long-time knife enthusiast with a background in mechanical design and manufacturing, constantly strives for excellence and perfection, aided by a professional design team and his own factory. Reate Knives an unconventional brand that has the courage to be an innovator and challenge the traditional solutions used by contemporary knife companies. It uses only the highest quality materials to produce perfectly crafted tools. Enjoying a well-deserved reputation as a leader in the world of knives, the brand is committed to the highest possible quality of workmanship and an innovative approach to design.
Elmax - considered the "best all-round knife steel" a modern alloy steel with a high content of 17.30% (Cr), carbon 1.70% (C), vanadium 3.00% (V), molybdenum 1.00% (Mo), silicon 0.80% (Si). Hardened to 57-62 HRC. Produced using a powder metallurgy method that involves mixing finely powdered materials, pressing to the desired shape and then heating to sinter or bind the material. It is characterised by extreme edge holding, high wear and corrosion resistance and dimensional stability. Manufactured at the Böhler-Uddeholm steelworks in Austria.
Blade - machine ground DE (Double Edge Dagger) type with sharpened edges on both sides. Finished with an elegant satin finish. The backbone extends the length of the cutting edge in relation to the length of the slim blade, converging towards the needle-sharp tip of the knife. The thickness of the blade provides high strength while the high, flat grind gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. Mechanical locking by snapping a section of the Handle onto the oval locking pin.
Handle - CNC-milled titanium Exoskeleton, external skeleton with movable top section responsible for opening and closing the knife. The chamfered edges of the sheaths eliminate sharp edges and the perfectly matched Marble Carbon Fiber composite inlays with black marbled pattern add an exclusive touch and improve grip security. On the right side, an artful sliding lock slider for extending/retracting the blade. Once it has been moved to the secure "lock" position, the knife will not be opened/closed by accident. The single-position titanium (right) deep carry clip allows the knife to be carried discreetly in the pocket in the tip-down position (blade tip down).
