Titanium Handles
Titanium Handles A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
M390
M390 Powdered metal developed for knife blades which provides good corrosion resistance and very high hardness for excellent wear resistance during hard use cutting.
Semi-Custom
Semi-Custom Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.

Excellence as expected
This will be a lightly carried & lightly used knife as are the majority of what I own so my review is not based on batoning a chord of kindling or slicing up empty cardboard boxes & cutting zip ties for a month. Disclaimer aside, I have an appreciation for well made knives and the like. I’ve had 4-5 Reate knives and this is well made by them also. The innovative ‘kickstand‘ flipper tab is intriguing and is robustly executed. The grind lines are symmetrical and beautifully done. Not overly thin behind the edge (~ 0.025”) but the hollow grind makes up for that. The handle & backspacer are assembled nearly seamlessly & you have to look carefully to ensure it’s not an integral handle. The cool tool for the proprietary pivot is an excellent fit in the pivot and is functional without being uncomfortable to use while retaining the look of a bomb that ties in nicely with the WingMan name/theme/brand of the knife. My only complaint is minor and it’s a mere matter of familiarity. When flipping it open with the tab there’s less forgiveness about where it sits in your hand than many or most knives. It’s possible to land your middle finger upon the lock bar and create enough resistance that it feels for a second that the knife has frozen in the closed position. Just a matter of getting used to it which was accomplished in one short afternoon of fidgeting & flipping. It’s a cool looking knife that’s well made and has the coolest pivot adjusting tool I’ve ever seen (plus it didn’t cost $75-$90 like the ones for my Hinderer XM-18’s)
