Per LionSteel's website: "First knife in the world to be made with the DMLS technology: Direct Metal Laser Sintering. It is an Additive Manufacturing technology (aka 3D printing). Starting from powder Titanium, through the technique of selective fusion, we build the Solid handle of the knife. The main advantage lies in the fact that you are able to get products using high-performance materials but dramatically reducing the weight. The blade is made of Sleipner Tool Steel from Uddeholm Sweden, and has a hardness of 61 HRC. This knife has a IKBS system to facilitate the sliding of the blade. This system is based on two bearings positioned on both sides of the blade that provide smooth opening/closing. The clip is made of hardened steel and is reversible. Two cylindrical springs guarantee perfect strength in mechanics." Comes in an elegant Black Velvet Box with Black Silk Lining along with a handsome Black Leather Case. THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL KNIFE!!
