LNTM1MB: TM1 MB Micarta with Black 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.

Revenge of the lockback
This freakin thing is soooooo dang smooth. The fact it is milled out from a single block of micarta, the fact that it has an awesome blade on it, the fact it is a beasty lockback....WITH bearings. Don't let any doubts stop you if you are reading this, pondering if it is worth it or not..... I have a CRK Seb.21, 25, Umnum.; ZT 0350, 0801, 0550, 0566, 0620, 0620CF; Strider sj75s, and a few benchmades......also a Lionsteel PVD coated SR1 Ti.....this ergonomic little tank has just kick them all out for a bit....I'm actually about to start doing some selling so I can get the TM1 CF version as well! I really can't emphasize how awesome it feels to carry a non-framelock again that is this freaking it.
