The BestMan from LionSteel brings the modern and traditional together with the beauty and precision we have come to expect from LionSteel.

This Drop Point version comes with Santos Wood covers.

Brand new, direct from LionSteel of Italy.

Blade: Made from Bohler M390 the blade of the BestMan offers the best combination of edge retention and corrosion resistance while still being relatively easy to sharpen. A fine satin finish and crowned spine add to the stylish look while dual nail nicks allow the knife to be open right or left-handed. The flat ground, Drop Point profile is a classic for good reason: it offers excellent performance for slicing and piercing tasks with good tip durability. A great choice for dress carry or every day use.

Handle: Crowned titanium liners support beautiful handles with scales of Santos Wood framed by grooved titanium bolsters at both ends. The back-spring is crowned along with the chamfered scales and bolsters making this knife very comfortable in the hand. The moderate back spring tension delivers smooth pull with snappy half and full stops for secure use.

Bohler M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. M390 also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid problems by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
