Reate's 2018 Torrent model is less a redesign of the knife and more of an upgrade to materials and manufacturing techniques to give you a truly superior product and better value for your money. It is a top-tier everyday carry knife with flipping action and manufacturing tolerances on par with the best in the industry. The knife features a 9.20 cm drop point blade made from Damasteel's RWL-34 stainless steel with a finger choil and a two-tone finish. The handle is a wonderful ergonomic shape, made from beautifully 3D machined 6AL4V titanium with a bead blasted finish. The presentation scale has large interior milled pockets to save you on weight and the easily accessible frame lock features a replaceable steel lockbar insert. The titanium pocket clip is fashioned after Todd Begg's ceramic ball clip and provides strong retention while being very easy to get in and out of the pocket. All hardware is blue anodized and the titanium backspacer is polished with blue accents. The knife can be opened equally smoothly using the flipper or the large dual thumb studs/blade stops and the light jimping on the thumb ramp is tight but very functional. It is another great example of how Reate Knives is taking the industry by storm; superb designs with excellent materials.

Reate Knives is using the freeze edging technique. During grinding, the temperature on the edge is controlled in a certain level of degree, which helps keep the hardness after the heat treating. Therefore, the sharpness and durability of the blade are assured. This helps bring the performance of the material to the best.
