LionSteel

The B40 is a fixed blade bushcraft knife designed to work wonders around the camp. It is easy to handle thanks to its reduced weight and compact size and its spear point blade is both versatile and durable. Designed by Molletta, the B40 features a flat back tang that can be used in tandem with a fire steel to light a fire. This operation can be done while the B40 is inside its sheath thanks to a clever little hole in order to operate in total safety.

The B40 is equipped with a Sleipner stainless steel blade which is great for wood carving among other things. The milled handle scales offer an excellent grip and are removable should the knife need a thorough cleaning after a long trip out in the bush. For a more traditional look, the handle is available either in Santos or olive wood, while for a more technical style there are the Micarta and G10 versions. The B40 is supplied with a beautiful leather sheath, perfectly shaped on its profile, and it provides great retention on your hip. Be ready for anything while out and about with a B40 from LionSteel, proudly made in Italy.

Outstanding Value!
I bought this knife about six months ago from knifecenter.com. This knife, although pricey by my standards, is excellent. The value to cost ratio is tremendous. It is simple and quietly elegant. Fit and finish are outstanding. The ergonomics, though seemingly rudimentary, are wonderful; the handle provides a solid hold in all types of grips and the micarta has a nice warmth to it that, at least to me, G10 typically lacks. (The sheath is also quite attractive and clearly well made, but because I make my own sheaths out of 9-10 oz leather, it rests quietly on a shelf.) The Sleipner steel takes a VERY fine edge and holds it extremely well. I use this as my primary day-to-day knife, especially when working in the yard or out fishing and hiking. The only reason it is not my primary woods knife is because of the saber grind. Though this grind, coupled with the near perfect balance of the knife, makes it a great slicer and is particularly adept at fine cutting tasks, more so than its medium-large size might lead one to believe, I use a scandi grind blade as my primary camping knife due to the scandi grind being easier for me to touch up on a ceramic rod during extended time afield. I've batoned, beaten and firesticked with this knife and it excels at everything I've put it through. Whether in the kitchen, the backyard or the trail, this knife does everything I need it to do and does it well. I own a couple more expensive knives that lend themselves a bit more toward being true bushcraft knives, but this is a knife I will NOT let go of until it's time to hand it down to one of my kids. IF they can pry it from my hand.
