KnifeInformer: Reate Exo M Review

  • Pros: Improved features like a lock, better pocket clip, and smaller size make the Exo M a more practical EDC option. High-quality materials, including 3V blade steel and 3D milled titanium handle scales. Unrivaled fidgetability that sets it apart from other knives in its class. Yeah fidgetability is a word. Unique design and one-of-a-kind appeal for gravity knife enthusiasts. Multiple blade options, including the popular tanto style.
  • Cons: High price point at $275, which may be a barrier for some buyers. Slight blade play and rattle, although this is common in gravity knives and not a dealbreaker. Black micarta inlays are a bit understated; Damascus inlays would elevate the knife’s appearance. And plenty of other options of inlays are available. No fully serrated blade option available (yet). Limited availability due to high demand and quick sellouts.

As a tactical gentleman, a bit of a scallywag, a flat cap, and an appreciator of fine EDC pieces, I was thrilled when Blade Ops approached me about this Reate Exo M review. I feel like the descriptors lose some of the irony in the text version of this review. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this upgraded gravity knife and share my thoughts on how Reate has made the greatest even better.

Key Takeaways

  • The Reate Exo M is an upgraded version of the already impressive Exo gravity knife, with new features like a lock, improved clip, and smaller size.

  • The dagger-style blade, available in several blade options like tanto, is made from 3V steel, a semi-stainless metal with excellent stain resistance.

  • The 3D milled titanium handle scales feel great, with only a slight hint of the clip in the top rear corner.

  • The Exo M’s unparalleled fidgetability is the main reason to buy this knife, and the blade play and rattle are part of its charm.

  • At $275, the Exo M is still pricey, but the upgrades and quality materials justify the cost for serious gravity knife enthusiasts.

  • Compared to other popular knives like the Para 2, Deadlock Model B, Factor, and Pro-Tech Don, the Exo M stands out with its unique design, top-notch materials, and unmatched fidget factor.
