Reate is a premium brand for high quality knives. Sitting right at the pinnacle of the mountain of production knife makers, they make knives for some of the best US and European names in the knife world -
Deric Costa (Ohlone Knives)
Sharp By Design
and numerous others who don't want their customers to know they are not making their own knives.
The founder David Deng (and his brother Jack who goes under the name "Solo Jack") is a long-term knife enthusiast. With a background of mechanical design and manufacturing major, he seeks detailed perfection for the design and making the knives. Reate is capable of manufacturing high quality knives with professional production equipment including CNC high speed engraving machine, milling, CNC grinding and a low temperature tempering furnace.
Reate buy steel from America, Germany and Japan. Commonly used steels are: Bohler-M390, S35VN, S30V, S90V, VG10, RWL34, Carpenter CTS-204P and Damascus. Handle materials includes: titanium 6al4v, Carbon Fiber, G10, copper, aluminum, wood, Mokuti and various kinds of exotic materials. We've sold their knives with rare Mammoth tooth and Black Turquoise and 24 carat gold dust inlays.
They make very few knives under their own brand and when they do they are often sold out before they hit our website - especially the Damasteel models.
It pays to ask us early and get in fast when you see a Reate knife appear on our website.
