Tonight I bring you a quick unboxing overview of the Real Steel S571 Pro , Titanium framelock , Full flat ground Elmax blade with IKBS flipper function , yet again supplied by UK retailer James @Twisted Assisted , this is not a paid review , I contacted James to check what serial numbers he had , ordered & paid my money , next day it arrived .
I've been looking over this brand for some time and after handling the RS Bushcraft folder and being totally blown away by the fit & finish for £50 I was very curious to see what there top end had to offer , and this one caught my eye , very sleek lines , not fussy materials of blingy pivots , just titanium and steel , I really like the raw grind look contrasting against the soft bead blasted Ti and I'm not dissapointed at all with my choice .
Much like the Bushcrafter , very nicely packaged , lovely branded box , paperwork & cleaning cloth , if the entire range is boxed the same the cheaper sub £50 folders would make very nice gifts (if anyone's thinking what to buy me for Christmas) with a real feeling of luxury to the whole package.
The knife is beautiful in hand , Think of the newer ZT offerings but with all those little sharp edges removed and a really really smooth action , it flips effortlessly and drops back to battery like the best of them , I'd compare the smoothness to my Hoback Kwaiback at 3 times the price & Spyderco Mamba at double , it's a delight to flip , I'll upload a quick video tomorrow , the lock bar "lock" is a nice touch , easier to engage than the DPX HEST style which I never got on with , simply push & pull to activate & deactivate .
Here's some pictures , please don't hesitate to ask if you'd like more details or specific shots .
