LMDXVBL: XV 15-Year Anniversary Folding Knife, Blue
Liong Mah Designs

Liong Mah's 15-Year Anniversary Knife, dubbed the XV, is simply put... amazing. Liong wanted to do something different with this knife, something he'd never done before and decided an integral handle design was the way to go. Teaming up with Reate Knives once again, who have been doing integral designs for some time now, it was destined for greatness from the first design stroke. This knife is large enough to be a formidable tactical tool yet so beautiful, precise, and ergonomic that you'll want it with you at all times. Get your hands on an XV while you can, Liong has limited the total to only 300 pieces across a number of different finishes.

The problem some people have with integral handle knives is that there is a cost associated with the durability you get from a single-piece titanium handle and that's the weight. They are often heavy just due to their design but Liong, being the conscious designer he is, added vented millings to the outside ala Michael Burch of Burchtree Bladeworks. He gave Liong his blessing to use what we believe is one of the coolest millings options around for his XV design. The full four inch CPM-S35VN stainless steel blade is hand-compound ground and features a two-tone brushed satin finish with stonewashed bevels. The radical sculpting of the handle will mold to your hand and is one of the most striking we've ever seen on a mid-tech knife. It also incorporates a replaceable lockbar insert/overtravel arrestor and reversible pocket clip which are excellent design features not found on every knife of this quality. It is one of the best knives we've seen this year and it will probably be the same case this time in 2018, it's awesome!

Semi-Custom
Semi-Custom
Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
S35VN
S35VN
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Titanium Handles
Titanium Handles
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Excellent Integral
This knife is great. Good ergonomics, impressive machining, a very effective blade shape, and excellent quality. The blade on mine is perfectly centered with no play and a smooth drop shut action. The pocket clip is stiff out of the box but can easily be removed and adjusted. Once it is, the clips works just fine.Get one!
