The L.E.One Folding Karambit knife marks the crossroads of the top technologies in the knife world. LionSteel collaborated with Emerson to craft a karambit that unfolds via the patented Emerson Wave Feature, making for faster deployment than an auto in situations where time is of the essence. The frame lock handle is milled from a single piece of aluminum for flawless form and function. To add to the L.E.One's utility, the blade is made from MagnaCut, the newest breakthrough in blade steel, thanks to its corrosion-resistance and impeccable edge retention. If you're looking for a knife at the forefront of technological advances, the LionSteel L.E.One is the one for you.

Customer Reviews

Gorgeous karambit.
Justin V. on Jun 22, 2022

Occasionally I get an email from BladeHQ with something irresistible. To me, this was irresistible. I got it in my hands yesterday and it's beautiful. The size of this is a little bigger. Comparable to the Fox 479 or Emerson Combat. This is kind of to be expected with L.E. in the name. It feels meant to be used with gloves. The finger hole is big enough for gloves and the handle is a little long without gloves. Without gloves, it is also a little on the smooth side. I noticed with gloves it is a hair deep in my pocket. It feels extremely high quality and feels like pocket candy compared to the others. I really hope LionSteel comes out with one slightly smaller compared to the Fox 599 for EDC, I would instantly buy it. I love the deep carry clip on this with no gloves. The only improvements I could think of are to give the lock bar a little more traction for closing or make it a hair less stiff, a few tenths of machining could go a long way.
