The MKM Raut is a cool EDC pocket knife, designed by Lucas Burnley. Striking about the Raut is its blade shape: it is a combination between a mini-clippoint and a sheepfoot. We also heard the term 'reverse tanto' before. In short: something unique.
In addition to the shape of the blade the Raut has multiple features you won't find on all knives. You open it, for instance, with the front flipper. You use your thumb to open it just as fast as with a regular flipper. MKM chose Böhler M390 steel for this knife. This is a type of steel that retains its sharpness well and is incredibly wear-resistant. It is also very stainless. One of the most popular choices at the moment. The spine of the blade has enhanced with a stylish, semi-circular cut-out that gives the blade a little extra strength.
The handle is made from a combination of thick titanium liners with a layer of G10 on top. The Raut feels great in hand and truly invites you to use this amazing EDC knife.
Where does MKM Knives come from?
MKM is a cooperation between Viper, LionSteel, Fox and Mercury. Four masters working in the Italian knife industry. It is no coincidence that they all come from the city: Maniago, northern Italy. The knife capital of the south of Europe. MKM stands for Maniago Knife Makers. This MKM Raut is made by Viper.
