Full description

The LionSteel M4 is an all-round fixed knife, designed by Michele Moletta Pensato. It is designed as a knife for bushcraft and other outdoor enthusiasts. Large enough for comfortable use and compact enough to take with you on hikes. On the one hand the design of this knife is very modern. On the other hand it looks like a classic hunting knife. LionSteel knows how to balance these two like no other.

The blade is made from Böhler M390 steel. This is an Austrian type of super steel. One of the best high-end choices at the moment. M390 excels when it comes to sharpness retention and corrosion resistance. On the spine of the blade, around the transition of the handle, you find a small protrusion. So small you hardly notice it, but large enough to offer your thumb more grip. The entire spine has a lovely finish, something we often see on Italian knives. The Santos Palissander handle is enhanced with subtle grip grooves. These make the knife look graceful and elegant.

To carry the LionSteel M4 with you, it comes with a right-handed leather belt sheath. The maximum belt width for this sheath is 8.0 cm.

The knife is great. The steel is one of my favourites with a good grinding. The blade shape is very nice, although it is not exactly a top notch slicer, mainly due to the blade thickness. But for other kinds of tasks it performs really nice. Have in mind that the spine of the blade is rounded and it has no jimping. The handle is very beautiful and gives an extra personality to this knife. Another plus is the quality of construction, which is awesome. And the sheath is also very nice. Mine required some break in but now it's fine, and to be honest the leather, though thick, breaks in fairly quickly. Before I finish this review, a word of advice. The wood is wonderful, but after some washes if tends to become dry and the colours fade. That is natural and it does not mean the quality of the wood is bad. The only thing you have to do, to protect and restore the handle giving it back its vibrant color, is to use wood treatment oil from time to time. I strongly advise you to use one that is colourless, cause you certainly don't want to mess with the natural colour of this wood, which is absolutely gorgeous.

So knives and tools accidentally sent me the walnut edition of the m4, rather then the Santos version I asked for, unfortunately for me I only noticed after I had scratched the knife in my amatus sheath. So I decided to keep it. But after using this knife, I've fallen in love with it. It feels great in the hand, it has a good length for woodwork, like carving wood, making firesticks, cooking and everything else you'd use a smaller knife for.. I imagine hunters and fishers would find the length good too... I use this knife in combination with the lionsteel t5 and I enjoy the them both when I go into the woods camping

Excellent craftsmanship, top materials, unbeatable price for what you get - premium steel, santos wood and premium leather sheath. Really nice piece of kit, equally adept at kindling and whittling some wood, or at food preparation and finer tasks, personally wouldn't baton with it (because it's just to nice), but it would probably excel at that too.
