Reate Knives Tashi Bharucha T2500 Flipper Knife 2.375" M390 Satin Blade, Titanium Handles with Carbon Fiber Inlay
RET2500CF: Tashi Bharucha T2500 Folding Knife, Carbon Fiber
The T2500 by Reate Knives follows in the footsteps and overall footprint of the Baby Machine utility folder. It's another excellent design from Tashi Bharucha with the goal of being a more compact, more pocketable knife than ever before. The T2500 is an amazing knife in form, function, fit and finish and provides you with a great deal of value, especially at its price point. It is a direct competitor to the Small Sebenza, which is still the industry standard all these years later, and some may even prefer the T2500 flipper more! It features a Bohler M390 stainless steel blade that rides on ceramic bearings and a sharp detent that creates some pretty swift action. The milled 6Al4V titanium handle has the appearance of an integral handle design without the exorbitantly high cost of machining a handle from a solid billet of titanium. What you have here are two pieces of titanium where the backspacers are integral to the scales and that gives you the unique look you'll find here. We love Tashi's designs as they are the perfect combination of form and function, where you don't actually sacrifice either of them!
Reate Knives 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 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 but still easily get worn in actual use.
Reate Knives is 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.
