REJACK20MCBB: JACK 2.0 Integral Folding Knife, Bead Blasted Micarta
The JACK 2.0 by Solo Jack Chen and Reate Knives is an integral tactical/utility beast masquerading around as a...we really don't know what. It's the first Reate design to feature an interchangeable blade - meaning that you can change it out or replace it with just a few quick turns of a Torx bit. It comes attached with a live sheepsfoot blade but also included in the package is a comb 'blade' that will transform this knife into the ultimate hair care accessory.
Reate offers the JACK 2.0 with barb wire Micarta or carbon fiber scales and your choice of anodized finishes. The one constant that remains is the single-piece milled titanium handle that gives the knife the maximum strength possible in a folder. Whether you're using it to baton through a tree limb, slice open a letter in the office or style your 'do, the JACK 2.0 will look right at home doing so. We love the overall profile, ergonomics, and incredible action of this knife, and every other Reate for that matter. They are some of the most elegant tactical cutting tools manufactured anywhere in the world and this knife feels like it can handle anything.
Reate Knives Freeze Edging Skill
As the final blade process, edging has a great effect on the performance of a knife. After all, the edge is the main functional 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 degrees centigrade. When it gets worse, it will burn and leave heat marks on the blade. Tempering, or even annealing, will happen in the area of the edge where the temperature increases instantly. It will harm the hardness and durability of the blade. That’s why some knives passing the hardness standard test still easily get worn during actual use.
Reate Knives is using the freeze edging technique. During grinding, the temperature on the edge is controlled to a certain degree level, which helps keep the hardness after the heat treating. Therefore, the sharpness and durability of the blade are assured. This helps the material reach the best possible level of performance.
