LionSteel TM1 CS Folding 3.54" Satin Sleipner Steel Blade, One Piece Carbon Fiber Handle
LNTM1CS: TM1 Carbon Fiber with Satin Blade
Following the previous solid SR-1 and TiSpine models, both frame lock folding knives, LionSteel decided to launch a solid knife with lockback. The task was a challenge, considering their decision to use carbon fiber or Micarta for the monolithic one-piece construction of the handle using four-centerline machining stations. The blade is available either satin finished or black. The clip can be fitted on either side of the handle, making this knife totally ambidextrous. The double spring lock back mechanism ensures greater flexibility in the mechanism and improved durability of the locking system.
Each TM1 is fitted with a glass breaker and a tungsten carbide point. To enhance the knife mechanism, it has been supplemented with the IKBS pivot system which envisages ball bearings to facilitate the blade sliding motion. It's much smoother and faster than other knives in this category, which is the beefy, tactical blade. Design by Molletta, the TM1 has a much more ergonomic shape than previous LionSteel models and the blade shape is ideal. For my money, the handle and overall size of the knife is perfection, right in-between the SR-1 and SR-2 models and is made with the same, unflinching quality.

The original locking mechanism. It can be found mid spine or at the bottom of the handle, and it provides tight lockup that will wear well.
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
