The LionSteel KUR Metamorphosis folding knife is designed 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. All metal construction makes for an ultra rugged knife that can handle whatever comes it's way. Special heat sensitive coating on the handle changes to a camo pattern when held in the hand.
The Blade: Drop point design has a flat grind for great slicing ability and is made from wear resistant Sleipner steel. Stonewash blade has a rounded spine and 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 use.
The Handle: Thick aluminum scales have a 3D machined texture for grip yet slides in the pocket with ease. This Metamorphosis version has a special coating on the handle that changes from black to camo at around 73 degrees Fahrenheit. Just holding the knife in the hand completes the change in a just a few seconds. The scales have also 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.
