Lionsteel Thrill TL A BS

  • Regular price R 2,395.00


The Thrill is an incredible knife from LionSteel in more ways than one. It is the first integral handle slipjoint knife that we know of manufactured anywhere in the world and it might just be the perfect EDC knife. Its "no locks" mechanism is built from a single piece of material completely obtained by milling using SOLID LionSteel technology found on many of their other designs. The blade is made out of M390 stainless steel with a brushed satin finish, nail nick, and half-stop safety. The spring tip of the handle is reinforced with a treated stainless steel insert to ensure solid lockup while it's very well-executed and just appears to be another bit of jimping. This knife features the patented LionSteel HWAIL system that allows you to "hide" the clip inside the handle, so it can be used at the owner's discretion. It is possibly the strongest and most innovative slipjoint knife every created and we look forward to hearing what you think about it.
