This is hands down the sharpest knife straight out of the box, that I have ever purchased. M390!!! so good, this knife is small, and light, but mighty. Love the options but I'm running er' nude, no flipper or thumb stud, a real beaut! I highly recommend this blade, especially at this price, WOW.

Beautiful knife
Rick M. on Oct 5, 2019

What’s not to love about this knife, this is a very fast smooth opening overbuilt knife. I love the attention to detail of the rounded edges on the blade and the handle. It is very comfortable in the hand. I have purchased several knives mostly higher end knives from blade hq. and I rate this as one of my very favorites. You’ Love this knife, “Buy It”.

Sweet addition.

I'm partial to light weight good looking EDCs, and all the bells and whistles that come with the TRE from Italy makes this item terrific. This is my second lionsteel - first is actually LionSpy (highly recommend). My favorite feature is the pocket clip. It almost looks like a pen with deep carry and is light enough to carry in a shirt pocket. Mine has the blue clip which is sweet, but the knife is such a beauty, any color will please. Enjoy.

Missing Knife Torx Bit Tool

Great knife! Great quality! Marked 4 stars, reason: in the box was missing Torx Bit Tool!

Not pleased with the quality
Greg H. on Jul 7, 2022

After owning this knife for over a year, I am disappointed with it. It doesn’t open smoothly, the several attachments have either bent or don’t seem to stay tightened like before. The blade is sharp and is the best feature of the knife. With the thumb opener attached, you cannot open it with a flick of the thumb. The flipper is no longer smooth. I have less expensive knives that are performing much better long term. The repair process to Lionsteel Italy is absurdly expensive. No problem with their fixed knives.
