The MKM Raut is a cool EDC-pocket knife, designed by Lucas Burnley. Striking about the Raut is the shape of the blade: which is a combination of a mini-clippoint and a sheepsfoot. We, however, also heard the term ‘reverse tanto’. In short: something unique.
In addition to the shape of the blade the Raut has been enhanced with a couple of features you won’t often find on all knives. Take, for instance, the front flipper which is located on the opposite side of where a regular flipper is placed. You use your thumb to open it as quickly as with a regular flipper. Böhler M390 was selected as the type of steel, an extremely wear-resistant type of steel that retains its sharpness well. It is also very stainless. One of the most popular choices at the moment. The spine of the blade has a stylish, semi-round cut-out that makes the blade look extra special.
The handle is made from a combination of thick titanium liners with on top a layer of G10. The Raut feels amazing in hand and invites you to use this amazing EDC knife.
