Knife designer Liong Mah made his name in the knife world designing knives for CRKT (Columbia River Knife and Tool). CRKT still produce many of his designs.
But he now designs knives under his own brand which are mostly made to exacting standards by David Deng and the team at Reate Knives.
Liong buys all of his materials in the USA and ships them to Reate to create his masterpieces.
Carbon Fiber is military grade from A&J Composites in Washington.
Blade steel is from Specialty Metals in Texas.
Micarta is from Westinghouse.
After having examined the knives myself, I can say that the quality of the knives is extremely high. Actions are great, the fit and finish is perfect on every knife I've examined and his attention to detail is superb. The Carbon Fiber he gets is absolutely top grade.
PLEASE NOTE - ALL LIONG MAH'S KNIVES ARE LIMITED EDITIONS. Once they are sold out he moves on to other designs.
Our first shipment of Warriors sold very fast. Liong's new knife the Lanny Carbon Fiber is almost sold out as well (most were pre-sold before our shipment arrived.)
The the new Lanny is my favorite of the group - with the Warrior a close second. A fantastic action, the Lanny is light with the presentation side made from Carbon Fiber and the 3.25 inch blade is a great size for Every Day Carry. However, the Warrior folds into a smaller package for pocket carry.
My next picks are the GSD Bling with a disappearing flipper tab and Carbon Fiber inserts and the bigger Limited Edition Tempest that also has a full Carbon Fiber presentation side. The Tempest only had a run of 49 and is almost sold out.
