Big fan of modern traditional knives. Not so much a fan of the satin blades most modern traditional slipjoints come with. Notorious EDC kingpin solves this dilemma. Full stonewash blade and covers, inspiration from a few timeless classics and some nice modern touches. Special mention also goes to the nice slip this comes with as well as the ability to put a lanyard on this. Walk and talk is amazing and fit and finish is up to Reates usual high standards.
Stoked to finally have the Kingpin back. Order arrived the next day with excellent packaging. Thank you Adventure Carry for the fast express shipping!
Fantastic service, top notch items
Awesome knife! Great walk and talk. Surprisingly fast shipping to the US.
