Custom Knife Factory Satori 2.0 Flipper Knife 3.35" M390 Two-Tone Complex Blade, Integral Titanium Handle
CKFSATORI20: Integral Peter Rassenti Satori 2.0 Folding Knife
Custom Knife Factory
Custom Knife Factory might sound like an ambiguous name but it's definitely one worth remembering. Their knives are mid-tech by definition but the quality definitely borderlines on full custom. They have a CNC machine shop in China that does some of the legwork but all the hand fit and finishing is done in house in their Moscow shop. They use top of the line materials made in the USA and designs from some of the most talented knife designers in the world.
Peter Rassenti is one of the premier custom knifemakers currently in our industry. If you're not familiar with his work, check out his Paysan collaboration with Spyderco, which was one of the most anticipated production knives in years. It's Spyderco's second integral, single-piece titanium folding knife and like the Southard Flipper, looks like a knife Spyderco will be selling like hotcakes for years.
The Satori is one of Peter's best models that pairs a large, wide blade with a slender handle for a truly ferocious look. Peter is an absolute perfectionist, scrapping any and every piece of core Damascus where the core isn't perfectly centered within his finished blade. This CKF piece looks and feels like a knife that he would definitely approve of, as it is absolute perfection. It is outfitted with a 3.35" M390 stainless steel blade rocking a complex compound grind and two-tone stonewashed finish. The handle is, of course, an integral design made from a single piece of milled titanium with a faint bronze finish. This smaller Satori 2.0 features a caged bearing pivot, replaceable steel lockbar insert, perfectly jimped thumb ramp, and small lanyard hole at the butt end. You cannot go wrong with a Custom Knife Factory offering, the quality is up there with absolutely any manufacturer out there.
