LNTM1CS: TM1 Carbon Fiber with Satin Blade
Following the previous solid SR-1 and TiSpine models, both frame lock folding knives, LionSteel decided to launch a solid knife with lockback. The task was a challenge, considering their decision to use carbon fiber or Micarta for the monolithic one-piece construction of the handle using four-centerline machining stations. The blade is available either satin finished or black. The clip can be fitted on either side of the handle, making this knife totally ambidextrous. The double spring lock back mechanism ensures greater flexibility in the mechanism and improved durability of the locking system.

Each TM1 is fitted with a glass breaker and a tungsten carbide point. To enhance the knife mechanism, it has been supplemented with the IKBS pivot system which envisages ball bearings to facilitate the blade sliding motion. It's much smoother and faster than other knives in this category, which is the beefy, tactical blade. Design by Molletta, the TM1 has a much more ergonomic shape than previous LionSteel models and the blade shape is ideal. For my money, the handle and overall size of the knife is perfection, right in-between the SR-1 and SR-2 models and is made with the same, unflinching quality.

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Overall excellent knife with nice action
The things that make this knife great are weight, balance, action, ease of use, and fit and finish. The things that make this knife bad are the clip and the thumb plate. The thumb plate is too rounded off and the clip is too small and doesn't match the knife. At this price point I wish the clip was more thought out. All in all though I like the knife due to the nice action and ease of use. This one is super easy to flip once you learn the rounded thumb plate. A little sand paper to scuff it up the thumb plate and it would probably be perfect. It came shaving sharp as well with a nice finished and polished edge.
