The LionSteel KUR tactical flipper is another great folding knife designed by Michele "Molletta" Pensato. Similar to his earlier model, the TRE, but with a longer and wider blade that shows that this flipper is all business. Big and bold but comfortable and light in the hand for it's size, this folding knife is easy to live with day to day.
The Blade: Drop point design has a flat grind for great slicing ability and is made from wear resistant Sleipner steel. PVD-coated and stone-washed blade has a rounded spine and flipper that gives it a high end look and feel. Another attention to detail is the ball bearing pivot system that provides for a smooth deployment on every use.
The Handle: Thick G10 scales have a 3D machined texture for grip yet slips into a pocket with ease. The scales have been machined out to accept steel liners that give the knife strength while helping to keep weight under control. A relief cut in the top scale provides easy access to the steel liner lock. The use of titanium for the backspacer adds additional strength and adds an extended lanyard hole. For the times when the knife is not is use, the deep carry wire clip helps to maintain a low profile.
