There's a good discussion here.
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
I want one!!!!
Any news on a larger fixed blade in the range of a 9-inch blade?
"We are studying....what?
Am I the only thinking it's time for a properly sized, stainless, fixed 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!!
OMG !!!!!! Blade's shape Is what I've been dreaming for ages!
....I love it!!!
....Just I'm not sure about the handle
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.
I wanted a Knife Research Enki with Vanadis 4E steel but missed it . Wouldn't mind something like this in V4E
I'm sure that Mik will surprise us.....soon, hopefully...!!!!!!!
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.....
No. T6 is a camp knife.
Sorry Mik....Just to understand: doesn't T stays for "tactical"?
