    How about some damascus and inlays. Fancy the knives up a bit.

    I would own every design they put out if they were tapped for left hand carry :(

    So aside from BladeHQ, where's the best place to shop for these badboys?
    I'm pretty interested in your Horizon-A model, but I'm also interested in some custom options. Acid wash, red pivot, etc. Nothing too crazy.

    What's the best place to talk about these options? Facebook page? Email you?

    I handled the Horizon A in the pass around and was quite impreesed with fit and finish and overall function of the knife. Only reason I don't have a Reate is funding at the moment. I would like to see something in the 3.25" blade area with a carbon fiber scale.

    Had an ADV Butcher Midtech prior to owning a District 9. Same quality, fit&finish, and flips just as well at half the price!

    Carbon Fiber inlays would be awesome, and I'm always a fan of custom pivots!

    The only issue I have with this brand is that the knives are hard to find, even though they seem to be good value for the price. I am really hoping that the D9 doesn't go out of stock again before I can get one.

    For the small titanium flipper, please strive for the blade length being just under 3 inches (75-76mm) so that you get the most coverage of locations with such legal limitations. Remember the American Knife and Tool Institute's Protocol for Measuring Knife Blade Length as follows: "the measurement shall be the straight line extending from the tip of the blade to the forward-most aspect of the hilt or handle.".

    Also, please make it as thin and narrow as possible for the best possible EDC. This should also drop the weight down to under 4 ounces (≈ 113 grams).

    Note: I was so impressed with my recent acquisition of a Reate Hills direct from China that I ordered a Horizon-B and a District 9-A from BladeHQ earlier today.

    Just received a District9, and it's one of the few production knives that have come with no defects. Centered, great lockup, no blade wobble, even edge lines. No manufacture dings. Overall, very impressive.

    I have examined both the Horizon A and B during participation in pass around, and am in line for the passarounds for the Hills and District 9. For me, it's only a matter of which model to get first!

    By the way, Reate knives are way higher on my list of "want to buy" knives than the other two Chinese brands that I have examined. :)
