The Gents #9 is about as impressive a piece as we've seen in a good long while. It combines smooth action and a stylish design with the utmost strength for a hard-use EDC that few can match. Reate's industry-leading build quality is on full display here with the only screw holding the knife together being the pivot. Everything else is fitted perfectly and attached from the interior or with friction/pressure making for a super clean look. Then we get to the ergonomics. If you've got an appreciation for smooth surfaces and a knife that fits naturally into the contours of the hand ready for use, you've found the cream of the crop right here. It just feels so right to hold and to use that we think this model is poised for a larger brother at some point to set the standard for the tactical folder. The Gents #9 really makes us wonder...what about the first eight?
