The LionSteel KUR tactical folding knife is just one more great design by Michele "Molletta" Pensato. Similar to his earlier model, the TRE, but with a longer and wider blade that shows that this flipper means business. Big and bold but light 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 chip and wear resistant Sleipner steel. Stonewash blade has a rounded spine and integral flipper that gives it a high end polished look and feel. Another attention to detail is the ball bearing pivot system that provides for a smooth deployment on every press of the flipper.
The Handle: Thick G10 scales have a 3D machined texture for grip that is comfortable to hold and easy on the pockets. 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 a titanium for the backspacer adds additional strength and 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.
