Big and bold but light for it's size, this folding knife is easy to live with day to day.
Brand new from Lion Steel, Italy.
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.
Handle: Thick G10 scales have a 3D machined texture for grip without being too coarse and ruff on your 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 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 pocket clip helps to maintain a low profile.
