The Lionsteel B35 is a wonderful bushcraft knife, designed by Molletta. Lionsteel produces phenomenal fixed knives with an amazing price-quality ratio. The B35 collection is no exception. It is relatively light-weight which means it will hardly add any weight if you carry it in your backpack.
The Lionsteel B35 has a full-tang construction. This means that the tang follows the entire shape of the handle. This also transfers the entire blade thickness to the tang. Lionsteel subtly rounded the tang and the spine of the blade to make sure there are no sharp edges or corners where you don't want them. Striking is that the handle is not held together with screws. As a result you can easily take the B350 apart to properly clean the knife after a weekend in the woods. Lionsteel offers a wide range of at least five different versions with different handle materials. As such there is something for everyone!
This European knife is made from an European type of steel, Sleipner steel. This Austrian type of tool steel retains its sharpness well. Tests carried out by Lionsteel show that Sleipner retains its sharpness just like M390, but it is a lot tougher. Do, however, pay attention to the following: Sleipner steel is not completely stainless. So make sure you properly dry the knife after use. The blade has a stonewashed finish that doesn't only look great, it also masks any traces of use.
An ingenious detail is the angular back of the handle. This edge is sharp enough to effectively create sparks with a firesteel. You can also use this part to create tinder. Great when you want to light your fire! This detail clearly demonstrates that Lionsteel is an expert when it comes to bushcraft knives and definitely knows what they are talking about. The B35 comes with a solid leather sheath to make sure you can carry this stunning bushcraft knife on your belt.
