    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.

    The MSRP on the Damasteel is US$475.

    Not sure if you will find any grey handle Damasteel models still around (they sold out very fast) but the blue ones should still be available.

    No problem. That striped pattern Damasteel is the most striking looking pattern I've seen so far but the other patterns are pretty nice too.

    I think BladeHQ still have some in the US.
