The LionSTEEL Thrill blends premium materials and smooth mechanicals into an unassuming slipjoint folding knife optimized for everyday utility. It packs impressive Bohler M390 steel and Ikoma Korth Bearing System (IKBS) into a slim traditional package.
The drop point blade measures just under 3” in length and is crafted from M390 stainless steel made by Bohler of Austria. M390 steel provides excellent edge retention, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance due to high levels of chromium, vanadium, tungsten, and molybdenum. It takes a razor edge and holds it through daily cutting tasks. Not to mention, this knife falls exactly within the UK legal carry parameters for daily use!
Deployment of the slipjoint blade is smooth and fidget friendly thanks to the IKBS ball bearing pivot. This allows fluid opening and closing absent the typical friction of traditional slipjoints. When open, the blade is held securely in position by the slipjoint yet still folds closed easily.
The handle features sleek black anodized aluminum scales molded with contours for grip. To reduce visual clutter, the pocket clip is hidden within the HWAIL handle design and only becomes visible when clipped. Closed length is 3.88”.
LionSTEEL is known for their meticulous Italian craftsmanship and artisanal finishing touches. The Thrill model brings together timeless slipjoint tradition with modern locking blade features for sublime utility. A gentleman’s knife optimized for daily carry.
