LionSteel M5 Knife - Santos Wood



The LionSteel M5 Knife is a high quality "all-rounder" and provides an excellent pairing of form and functionality; this really is a very capable knife.

The deep and agile blade is made from Sleipner steel which has enhanced toughness, resistance to staining and excellent edge retention and is presented in a satin finish. The handle scales are made from hard wearing Santos wood and are held in place with stainless steel Torx T8 screws. The full tang is visible all the way trough the knife and culminates in an exposed lanyard hole.

The LionSteel M5 Knife is designed for a wide variety of outdoor tasks including bushcraft and is ideal for working with wood around camp, thinning branches or processing food for instance. Its dimensions and reduced weight make this knife an excellent multi-task tool.

The M5 is designed by award winning knife designer, Molletta and is supplied with a high quality leather sheath.

Stylish Italian Design

Really looks very nice & beautiful design. Also the elite, beautiful brown leather sheath increases its attraction. The knife has a very good grip & well balanced in the hand. Super sharp and holds its edge well. But not that good to baton due to short length of the blade. The typical survival knife have to be 15-16 CM blade's length & 5-7mm in thickness. This is why 4 stars. Otherwise it does a very good job. Hopeful to see a bigger model from lionSteel in the near future. I would highly recommend this knife. Finally have to mention the excellent service from Natural Man company All the best

Excellent bit of kit!

Really pleased with this knife. Having owned and moved on many camp knifes I really wanted a keeper so decided to spend a bit more. Already taken on one camp, feather sticks, whittling, baton no problem. Super sharp and holds its edge well. Feels great in the hand too with a good balance and weight. Great service from NaturalMan, cheers! A+

Great knife

The knife is great, well designed, balanced, and made. I do wish it didn't have the rounded back edge to the top of the blade so it could be used with a fire striker (I don't want to really grind in a flat edge). The sheath is ok, not great, slightly rough around the edges, but ok. I would however, definitely recommend this knife.
