The District 9 model from Reate Knives is an excellent flipper with a ball-bearing pivot and solid feel in hand. It has a bronzed, tumbled titanium frame lock and milled front handle slab. The matte gold anodized pocket clip and backspacer really add a nice touch. This D9-A model has a modified drop point blade in S35VN steel with a stonewash finish.

Reate district knives are sleepers!
daniel p.
These are lesser known by the masses but true knife enthusiasts know the AMAZING value of these custom like knives! I own both district9 A&B, and I can honestly say these would easily go up against $600+ custom knives in terms of materials and workmanship.
Incredible Midtech!

This knife is incredible! It has the feel of a custom knife. The tolerances are amazing. The coloring of the knife makes it look even more like a custom. And the pocket clip is extremely nice, much better than a spring clip.
Outstanding Production Blade 2 Price Point

Finish 7/10 overall rating > 8/10 cnc of scales, 6/10 overall anodizing (multiple inconsistent spots), 9/10 blade stonewash, note: the show side did have 3 light scratches otb

I bought the A and the B versions for my collection and would have to say I favor the B Tanto. These blades represent excellent value and all the reviews I've watched on YT did not lead me wrong. Another thing to note is that both came with the same gold anodized sculpted clip, so if you order the same models from other online retailers, be sure to check out which clip is included because there are versions out there that have titanium spring clips as opposed to the sculpted ones that came with mine from BladeHQ.

I have striders zt's spydes medfords and so on but I to say made in China a side I am more pleased with this d9 than any of them. The knife is put together very nicely centers perfect it's smooth sharp all I can say is wow. At 2 bills its unbeatable I love it if I are on the fence about it don't be its all you want and more. They also send extra hardeware and lock bar insert in the box. NICE !!
Really impressed

In short, this knife is outstanding for the price. The quality is incredible and I could not be happier. There was one oddity though, the lockside of my knife does not have the "District 9" engraved on the back. I'm not sure why though.
Max bang fur yur bucks!

If you had $200 and wanted the most knife you could get for it, then this my friends is all you! I would vote this the best knife you could get for $199 hands down. There are subtle details you will discover after holding this one in your hand that aren't even mentioned. I have no reason to, but I would buy a second one just because I love this flipper so much.

You will not be disappointed, I guarantee it. Reate could easily ask for and get double the price on this one.

Ok, only drawback is where it's made. I can tell you for sure, it has non of the negative qualities that other made in China knives have. If you can overlook that, then you are good to go with this one.
