    Better toughness. Less wear. than k390
    High toughness also at high HRc. Excellent for big blades.

    BÖHLER K490 MICROCLEAN cold work tool steel closes the gap in the material demands between wear resistance and the desired high toughness.
    • High hardness (up to 64 HRC)
    • Very good toughness
    • High abrasive and adhesive wear resistance
    • Excellent hard machinability
    • High compressive strength
    • Heat treatment together with common cold work tool steels (1.2379, D2) at hardening temperatures from 1030 to 1080 °C (1885 – 1980 °F) possible
    • Stable mechanical properties

    Any news on a larger fixed blade in the range of a 9-inch blade?

    I would prefer a 6...6.5 inch "full blade" (without any notch).
    A 9 inch may be too heavy to carry.....and hopefully not made of the bloody Sleipner!
    It's time for a top class stainless!!

    Very nice lines and looks to be a fine design for heavy use.

    I'd love to see lionSTEEL do a small bird and trout-like, EDC-oriented fixed blade. Like a slightly larger pairing type knife. Thin, comfortable, nimble.

    I'm exactly looking for the same set: an heavy duty blade (not too big....6" is perfect to carry) sided to a small, refined, precise,....and damn sharp little knife for food processing and precise tasks .
    If you are not looking for a folder I would recommend the Lionsteel M1, which I already own in the waiting of the bigger unit.
    The M1 is a "total around" blade, in small package.....absolutely one of the best minimal knives ever used.

    This is a little series for experimentation. The LM-6
    The Lionsteel T6 will be different.

    This means it will be a tactical blade....but what about an M6?......how long should we wait for it.....:(
