Real Steel Creates Frame Lock Luna for Fans

Real Steel‘s bringing a new, frame lock version of Jakub Wieczorkiewicz’s Luna to their Sample Division. Called the Luna Boost, it brings some other tweaks and changes beyond the lock itself.

The Luna’s N690Co blade has been left as is, for the most part. That means a capable drop point shape, measuring 2.76 inches long. This is a knife that was – and is – ready to tackle the usual gamut of everyday cutting chores, with some added piercing power compared to the modified wharncliffes and sheepsfeet that are popular these days.

But, in the transition to a frame lock, RSK wanted to give users the option for one-handed opening too. Thus the Boost comes equipped with a thumb stud that can be removed with an included wrench. In fact, the titanium stud can be transferred to the standard Luna model, giving the slipjoint variation a one-handed operation option.

The presence of the frame lock on the Boost means no slippie spring along the spine; so the Boost has an open, flow-through design with standoffs instead. RSK also took this opportunity to upgrade the Luna’s clip, swapping out the stamped stainless steel clip on the standard model with a custom titanium one.

Two different show side scale materials are available: titanium or carbon fiber. The titanium model weighs 1.99 oz., while the CF version takes the weight all the way down to 1.64 oz. The titanium model can be had in a black-coated or natural version.

Currently, the Boost is a limited edition release under RSK’s Sample Division program. While this is the first time the Luna could be had with a frame lock, it is not the first time Wieczorkiewicz’s knife came out in a locking variation; a liner lock model debuted earlier this year.
