M7 is the next LionSteel fixed blade knife to come through our doors and this tactical/camping fixed blade is a beast! LionSteel's goal was to build a good multi-purpose field knife. Therefore, they decided to use an old project developed a few years ago with Molletta - the Carthago was produced initially as a limited edition and with the necessary modifications, they have recently put it into production. The 7.09" blade is an intimidating piece of steel when unsheathed and it really is a piece of edged art. The handle is extremely well done, locks the knife into your hand perfectly, and is very comfortable to use for an extended period of time. Knife comes with a friction fit Kydex sheath with a Cordura backing.
Michele Pensato - aka ‘molletta’, his nickname in Italian – is a very active designer with years of experience. His previous life as an excursion lover and a passion for archaeology had him spending most of his experiences in the great outdoors, where he soon got to understand how a great knife should really be and what it should be capable of achieving. He led the Nexus production group and the group that was created at the MCKF Forum. A keen student of the steel industry, he stands out for his new approach to the use of materials and experimentation in thermal treatment applications.
An advanced user of design software such as Catià, Solidworks, Inventor, he applies FEA to design and aims to create yet more solid and innovative products.
