The LionSteel M4 is an all-round fixed knife, designed by Michele Moletta Pensato. It is designed as a knife for bushcraft and other outdoor enthusiasts. Large enough for comfortable use and compact enough to take with you on hikes. On the one hand the design of this knife is very modern. On the other hand it looks like a classic hunting knife. LionSteel knows how to balance these two like no other.
The blade is made from Böhler M390 steel. This is an Austrian type of super steel. One of the best high-end choices at the moment. M390 excels when it comes to sharpness retention and corrosion resistance. On the spine of the blade, around the transition of the handle, you find a small protrusion. So small you hardly notice it, but large enough to offer your thumb more grip. The entire spine has a lovely finish, something we often see on Italian knives. The Santos Palissander handle is enhanced with subtle grip grooves. These make the knife look graceful and elegant.
To carry the LionSteel M4 with you, it comes with a right-handed leather belt sheath. The maximum belt width for this sheath is 8.0 cm.
