The Reiff F4 is Getting a Scandi Grind

The F4 Embraces Its Bushcraft Side with the Release of the Scandi Grind Version.

The people at Reiff Knives announced both on Instagram and their website that their releasing a new version of the F4 with a true scandi grind and Micarta scales.

The Reiff F4 Scandi had handle scale options.

Everything else looks to be staying the same, but here are the specifications in case you didn’t already know:

Overall Length:9″
Blade Length:4″ (3.8″ cutting edge)
Blade Steel:CPM-3V
Handle Material:Canvas Micarta

The blade is retaining the stonewash finish with a satin finish on the scandi bevel. The scandi F4 will come in three different color options for the handle: black, green, and natural (which turns out to be brown), and will ship with a drop-leg-carry leather sheath featuring a ferro rod loop.

The new version of the Reiff F4 ships with a Bushcraft style dangler sheath.

We reviewed the original version of the F4 a while back and found the handle shaping to be by far the most striking thing about the design. So long as that’s staying the same this new variation should be great no matter what shape the blade is in, but it definitely feels like a natural progression to combine a grind that’s more aggressive with wood with it.

The Scandi version of the F4 should be a welcome release to bushcraft knife fans who insist on Scandi grinds.

Look out for the scandi version to drop on September 26 at 12 PM EDT with the usual suspects in knife vendors.
