DescriptionT.R.E. is an E.D.C. (Every Day Carry) folding knife. For its lightness and reduced dimensions it is the perfect pocket instrument for all day adventures.
T.R.E. Damascus is equipped with a damascus steel blade available in the Thor (by Damasteel) and Rain Drop (by Chad Nichols) patterns. It is provided with frame lock blade locking system together with the exclusive IKBS ball bearing system which allows rapid and smooth blade movements. Frame, clip and spacer are made of 6AI4V titanium, while the scales are available either in 6AI4V titanium or carbon fiber.
Designed by Molletta, T.R.E. owes its name to the exclusive Three Rapid Exchange patented system, which gives the knife three different opening methods: with the flipper, with the pin on the blade (thumb stud version) or without any additional device.
T.R.E. is supplied in an elegant wooden box which contains the opening pin and the flipper as well, along with the Torx T6 and T8 keys to be employed for the placement and removal of the accessories.
