Ernest Emerson Wave Opening
The Lionsteel L.E.One is enhanced with the Emerson Wave - a patented opening mechanism created by Ernest Emerson. A small hook on the spine of the blade which can be attached to the side of your pocket when you take it out. As such the knife opens on its own.
You can, however, also open the L.E.One with the thumb hole or flipper. Both are easy to use thanks to the use of ball bearings. REF System - With this feature you remove the flipper and replace it with the included screw. The result is a slimmer knife. A framelock locks the blade when opened. LionSteel added a steel insert to the framelock to prevent wear and tear in the long run.
CPM MagnaCut steel
The blade is made from CPM MagnaCut. One of the most popular types of steel of 2021 and 2022. This steel is labeled by many as 'perfect'. Just as tough as CPM-CruWear, CPM-4V, and Vanadis 4, and retains its sharpness just as well. The corrosion resistance is also sublime. Better than popular, stainless types of steel such as CPM S110V, CPM S45VN, and Böhler M390.
Integral aluminium handle
LionSteel is a master when it comes to mill work. The L.E.One is no exception. The handle is made from one solid piece of Ergal Aluminium. As such it is one of the first karambit pocket knives with an integral handle. The advantage is that, despite its size, the knife is relatively lightweight. The construction of the knife namely does not need steel liners, backspacers or extra screws.
