My Reate Bushido is still going strong. One minor issue was the blade went uncentered. This was due to the pivot screw coming loose. A bit of blue Loctite fixed it.

Reate made the Todd Begg Steelcraft Kwaiken with 3.75” and 4” blade lengths a while back. Regular side flippers not front/top.

My Reate Tribute front/top flipper is very much like my Reate Bushido with a different drop point blade shape and a zirconium bolster.

The thing that turned me off of the bushido is just how darn chonky it looked, especially compared to the pena front flippers which I love. Is the tribute noticably slimmer?

Reate Bushido and Tribute have about the same dimensions. Even within the Pena X series some are slimmer than others with the Trapper being the slimmest.

Here are pictures of some of my Front/Top flippers in September 2020. I’ve added a few more since: Reate Tribute, WE Black Void Opus and Isham Abstruse.

  1. Pena X Series Apache
  2. Reate Bushido
  3. Pena X Series Trapper
  4. Kizer Feist Reverse Tanto
  5. Kizer Feist Drop Point

Thanks for the pictures. The bushido doesn't look too bad next to the apache there. Maybe one of these days I'll give the bushido or tribute a try.
