    THE RETURN OF COMMUNITY DRIVEN COLLABORATIONS

    (April 27th, 2022)

    THE KAVISO x KIRBY RAINE
    IS COMING
    Renowned knife designer Kirby Lambert needs no introduction - his blades do all the talking. Produced with only high quality (and hard to find) materials, Kirby’s knives are eye-catching works of art with no detail overlooked. In Kirby’s workshop, even mammoth ivory is an option. Kirby designed blades are becoming increasingly scarce and reserved for collectors (and collector budgets) only. For the knife nuts here at Kaviso, it felt like the perfect time to release some fresh Kirby designed blades onto the scene.

    We’re excited to announce that we are resurrecting a Kirby fan favorite design from the ashes, the Kirby Raine Frame Lock. Made from a body of 6al/4v Titanium, the Kirby Raine has been previously decked out with Carbon Fiber inlays from Fat Carbon, offered with matching anodized titanium hardware and pocket clip, in stonewashed, recurve RWL34 blade. Manufactured by Reate, this thick, powerful, and eye catching folder is sure to command attention wherever it goes.


    Below we have a short list of our favorite configurations and mock ups for the next production batch of the Kirby Raine. Vote, comment, call your mom, spread the word. We want to hear from you before we put these irons into the fire! Feedback and votes will be considered until we place the PO on May 4th. The top variations will become the next generation of Kirby Raine folders.

      Glad you found us, Jerry! And thanks for voting on your favorite options. Excited to see which direction we end up going with these guys once we get some more community feedback.

      Love the fact that you can usually only find the knife and or unique version here.I purchased several sweet pieces from massdrop before they stopped and I was pleased when I seen a video on Jim Skelton channel concerning the qsp penguin.I unfortunately was late to pull the trigger on the one I liked so I went with the WE banter which I’ve had on my list and truthfully was considering if my knife was going to make the trip to Canada.Thanks and I look forward to many more unique options from your company like the one I just voted on.
