Description

Description

Designed by Eric Wong, and exclusive to Blade HQ, the Event Horizon from Reate Knives is a fascinating folder that offers fresh style and an extremely high-level of fit and finish.

This knife has a premium build, with 0.157" thick 6Al4V titanium construction, a milled pocket clip, multi-row ceramic ball-bearings, and a CPM-S35VN steel blade. The multi-ground blade has a modified tanto profile with a hollow ground primary edge and flat ground secondary edge for maximum thickness at the tip. Action, lockup, and all the finishing touches of the Event Horizon flipper are spot on.

The blade and handle on this model are smokewashed and accented by satin hardware, barrel spacers, and pivot.

First blush, knee jerk reactions without much thought. My New Torrent "feels" of a higher quality in almost every way. I like the blade shape of the EH, but it didn't arrive very sharp. It flips AWESOME as expected. The lock is wonderful as expected. I like the weight and feel of the New Torrent better. So in general this will be a great "beater" knife that still looks and works great. My New Torrent is still my favorite EDC, but I would use the Event Horizon if I was going to break down a ton of cardboard at work or do a big wood project where some gunk might get on the knife. The Event Horizon actually may flip a little easier because the detent isn't quite as intense. The pocket clip is shockingly good tension for a sculpted too. This knife did not come with a replacement lock bar insert like the New Torrent did. Just the washers and some screws.

edit: After I put the knife on the Wicked Edge, just for full disclosure, the edge is pretty terrible. It was around 25 degrees per side. I still love the knife, but you should expect to be having it sharpened and re-profiled, or do so yourself.
