    Well, I ordered one. Got the black version.

    This will be my first Reate knife.

    This brand has intrigued me for a long time now. I just wanted something in a smaller size that what has been offered.

    The wait begins.


    Of course, I ordered a few other knives in the meantime. I like personal unboxings so maybe I will wait and open everything at once.....

    Looks great on paper. Any first hand experience/overviews from a forum member?

    Just got mine.

    I'd give it 9.5 out of 10.

    Very, very pleased.

    Get one.

    I have a question.

    Should the IKBS Ceramic bearings ever be lubricated? I assume they are somewhat porous.

    I don't have any issues with smoothness out of the box, I just wondered if a very light lube would be beneficial or not.

    They're loose IKBS bearings so they sit in grease anyway.
