The LionSteel T5 is a tough fixed knife. Like the little brother of the LionSteel M7, this knife is just as solidly constructed. This knife was meant to be an all-round tactical field knife. From lighting a fire to food prep: the LionSteel T5 has got you covered.
LionSteel T5 knife: Italian design, German steel.
The blade is made from Niolox steel. A German type of tool steel that is fairly stainless but when exposed to salt and acids can stain a little. When it comes to sharpness retention Niolox can be compared to D2 steel, but it is more resistant against chipping. It has a fine structure and it is easy to sharpen.
A characteristic of the LionSteel T5 is the micarta handle. This handle is milled from one solid piece of micarta. As such the handle is very strong. It feels amazing in hand. You feel straight away that it can handle quite a lot. Thanks to the large finger guard at the front of the handle, your hand is nicely locked around the handle. This keeps your hand away from the blade. The handle is large enough to hold it with a full fist. Even while wearing gloves.
The LionSteel T5 comes with a very luxurious leather belt sheath. It is enhanced with a belt loop (max. belt width 5.5 cm). But also with an extensive MOLLE-mount. This gives you the freedom to wear the T5 any way you want.
