The Dendra Defender is a robust framelock design that is manufactured by Lion Steel of Italy. This knife has a stonewashed D2 steel blade with a flipper and thumb studs for opening. The handle features a textured solid G-10 front and titanium framelock back side. This Defender has a black G-10 backspacer, RotoBlock lock and tip-up carry pocket clip. These knives may come a little tight from the factory, but a simple pivot adjustment with the included tool will allow you to set it just where you want it!

Love this knife
William W.
Rightly or wrongly, I'm suspicious of Russian manufacturing, but I bought this because it's made by LionSteel, and I have a great DPX knife made by LionSteel, and had a Pohl Force made by LionSteel, until I needed to return it for financial reasons, as it cost $410. This knife is built like a tank, to use ZT's phrase, but although it's heavy, it's not too heavy, at 6.2 oz. It fits the hand like a glove, and the scalloped G-10 makes that side very grippy. You can use the flipper or the thumbstuds to open it, and it works great either way. The framelock sticks sometimes, but I'd rather have it stick than be too easy to unlock. The rotoblock works well. It costs $250 less than the Pohl Force I had (which was also a great knife), but is every bit as good, and the steel is even harder, as it's D2 as opposed to Niolox. A lefty could use this knife comfortably, even though the clip is strictly right-hand tip-up. It's beautiful and very functional. What's not to love? I'll take it hiking and camping. I have a lot of knives, and this one is at or near the top of the list. This is quality in action.
