The LionSteel Thrill stands up to its reputation as a terrifying ride. The LionSteel Thrill is an outstanding example of a cutting-edge modern knife for men. It has a mechanism known as a slipjoint and a handle made from a single block of solid aluminum. This version of the Thrill is smaller and lighter than the titanium version.
Milling is a specialty in which LionSteel excels to the level of mastery. They prove this once more with the Thrill. For example, the innovative integral slipjoint mechanism. LionSreel milled it out of the integral handle! So there is no separate spring. That is with many other slipjoints very much the case. This is not only an amazing and unique feature, but it also makes the LionSteel Thrill very simple to clean. To clean the knife, remove the blade and release the screw that secures it to the pivot. That wraps it up! Yet, LionSteel does not end its work there. A steel insert within the slipjoint mechanism prevents wear over the long term. Something we usually only see in titanium frame lock mechanisms.
LionSteel Thrill with Böhler M390 steel blade
LionSteel decided to make the blade out of the well-known Böhler M390 steel. This type of steel comes from Austria. It has a very high resistance to wear; it also maintains its edge for a very long time. Furthermore, M390 has excellent resistance to corrosion. Besides, it is currently one of the most popular premium options. In spite of the powerful spring, you can open the knife with a reasonable amount of dexterity thanks to the nail house. Because there is no true locking mechanism and the blade can be opened using both hands, it is permissible to carry the knife in many countries throughout the world. When traveling, you will find that this comes in very helpful.
And the cherry on top of the cake is? The H.WAY system! It is also known as the “Hide What Annoys You” system. Many people who carry pocket knives find that having a protruding pocket clip is an annoyance. Or in the palm of your hand, depending on the circumstances. When using the knife, the pocket clip may be concealed within the handle thanks to this innovative design. The reason for this is that there is a spring. Just pressing the button on the opposite side of the handle allows you to attach the knife to your pocket so that it is easily accessible. There is a learning curve involved, but after some time it will become second nature to you.
The LionSteel Thrill is without a doubt one of the very best slipjoint knives that have ever been manufactured. Not only the appearance, but also the novel concepts and precise machining that went into it. Are you looking for a man’s knife that is both contemporary and one of a kind? Then the LionSteel Thrill is the knife for you.
