    Very cool! I want one of the Metamorphosis (chameleon) Aluminum handle models. Another LionSteel innovation. Some will call it gimmicky but it's still innovative.

    Is the weight mentioned for the Aluminum or G-10 models?

    How's the flipper action? Strong or medium detent?

    • Blade length: 3.425"
    • Blade thickness: 0.177"
    • Weight: 5.57 ounces
    • Price: $190-$210

    Great on the strong flipper action.

    • Weight AL: 6.21 oz.
    • Weight G-10: 5.57 oz.

    Kind of on the heavy side but the thick blade is close to the length and thickness of TM-1 so that explains it.

    Can we hope to see a smaller version of the Kur? I prefer a three-inch blade and a liner lock. If not, I'll go ahead and order the TRE I been planning to get.

    No, i do not think that we will produce a small KUR. We already have TRE i that size.
    It is more easy that in the next future we will produce KUR with Ti frame.

    You can see the back side in the G10 pictures. This knife do not have the clip.

    Any reason for no clip? I'm not a fan of lanyards.

    We will introduce a new fixed blade, around 3"- 3.3" blade at the Blade Show in June.
