The Lion Steel KUR was "2016 Blade Show Overall Knife of the Year". Think about the compeition the KUR beat for that award. The KUR is a heavier flipper than we are accustomed to seeing from Lion Steel, but great form and flow. Still tauting the IKBS bearing system. the KUR is a very smooth flipper with enough Sleipner stock to handle any chore. The Metamorphosis model has a permanent coating on aluminum that will turn from black when cool to camo when warmed up.
