    Reate Knives would like to talk a little bit about one important technique—Freeze Edging Skill.

    As the final process for a blade, edging has a great effect on the performance of the knives, after all, the edge part is the main function area when using a knife. Normally, edging is operated on a high-speed running grinding wheel or grinding belt, which produces a very high temperature. Without a cooling system, the temperature on the edge goes up instantly to hundreds of centigrade, when it gets worse, it will burn and leave heat marks on the blade. Tempering or even annealing will happen on area of the edge where the temperature increasing instantly. It will harm the hardness and durability of the blade. That’s why some knives passing the hardness standard test but still easily get worn in actual use.

    Reate Knives are 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.

    Thank you very much for your time.

    Reate Knives Team.

    I stopped using Photobucket back in about 2005. They were crappy then and even worse now.

    Thank you very much. Looks to have the same pivot system as the K-3 (prototype and production version). I like the idea of a more plain scale like the one pictured toward the bottom. Will hopefully keep the pricing at bay by not using inlays and other bling. Could be a great user.

    I'm still pushing Reate to go back to M390 and CTS-204P and mix it up with blades in Elmax, Vanax and CPM S90V. For a knife at those prices our customers are demanding better blade steel than RWL34.

    That one looks great. When do you expect these to hit dealers?

    I think if they went the other way and the RWL34 ones were more in the $250-$350 range rather than $350-$500, that would be pretty welcome, too.

    Indeed it does and after looking on Wikipedia I see the close connection in Norse mythology between a Valkyrie and Valhalla.

    I'm really digging the blade profile on this one. It's a bit large for my taste, but if you're gonna name it Valhalla it should be big!

    Got mine yesterday! Very comfortable in the hand. Pocket clip will need to be pried out some. Great jimping Reate! Edit again, there is a ramped detente
    track also which makes closing even better, first Reate I've seen with this.
    Horizon series would benefit greatly from this. Thanks Reate IMG_20180514_133743965.jpg
