LionSteel KUR Stonewashed Sleipner Green G10 Liner Lock Flipper
The LionSteel KUR tactical flipper is another hit from designer 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 bold, and light for its size, this folding knife has excellent fit and finish and is ideal for daily carry or outdoor use. This version comes with a stonewashed blade and OD Green G10 handle scales.
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. The rugged stonewashed blade has a rounded spine and flipper that gives it a high-end polished look and feel while hiding wear from use. A ball bearing pivot delivers fast, smooth operation via the removable index flipper making this an option for areas where two-handed opening are required.
Handle: Thick G10 scales have a 3D machined texture for grip that is comfortable in the hand 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. A partial back spacer adds additional strength, an extended lanyard hole and secure clip mount platform.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up, black stainless steel deep carry wire clip.
