Description

The Krake Raken (formerly known as the Kraken), is the industry leading butterfly knife that sets the gold standard for competitive flipping. The Krake Raken has several blade options including the Tanto, Bowie, Weehawk, and Trainer.

Since its release in 2019, the Krake Raken has come to be a staple in every professional flipper’s arsenal. Nearly every year since then, we’ve made careful, impactful revisions to the product by incorporating the community’s feedback into the design. After over 5 years of optimization, we looked towards a new horizon that could bring the Krake Raken to the next level: T I T A N I U M.

The Titanium Krake Raken’s newly redesigned handles offer a completely new flipping experience while simultaneously improving the durability. The sandwich handles feature the same overall length and contour dimensions as the original Krake Raken, but are thinner at .465” (.500” original). We guarantee that most flippers with small to regular sized hands will appreciate how effectively it improves dexterity and ergonomics. 

When products are upgraded with titanium, the overall weight generally goes up as 6al-4v titanium’s density is 1.725 times as dense as 7075 aluminum (4.43 vs 2.81 g/cm^3). However, by using sandwich construction and thoroughly skeletonized handles, we were able to reduce the overall weight by approximately .1 ounces. This difference seems negligible, but the overall distribution of weight is moderately different in comparison to the original Krake Raken. This new weight distribution profile creates a flipping experience that is less handle biased, quicker, and smoother. The balance point can be optimized with the modular weight pin system that also doubles as spacers which separate the handles from each other. The Titanium Krake Raken Handles are compatible with all Krake Raken blade shapes and versions, but do not share the same washers. Additionally, differences in bushing geometry may not always yield a perfect tune during a blade/handle swap.
