Description
LNTM1MS: TM1 Micarta with Satin Blade
LionSteel
 
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.

Cons: Weight, Lock Type, None
One great knife
This is a sweet large EDC with perfect fit and finish. The blade came razor sharp and it is a great slicer without sacrificing tip strength. The Micarta feels warm and "grippy". I dyed mine orange with a permanent marker and the resulting black and orange stripes give it the look of a tiger which is very appropriate. KnifeCenter had the knife for much less than their competitors and it was shipped quickly. I prefer liner or frame locks but will make an exception for this knife.
