It is provided with the IKBS ball-bearing pivot system to improve the knife opening and closing and give the T.R.E. knife an ultra-fast opening action. The user may choose three ways to equip his knife: a simple basic version without Flipper and pin on the blade, a Thumb Stud version with the pin on the blade or adding the flipper for a quick opening action. The knife comes with an elegant and attractive wood box equipped with a key chain with both Torx T6 and Torx T8 bits for the positioning or the removal of the Flipper, the Thumb Stud and the clip Designed by MOLLETTA.

    5 out of 5 Lion Steel TRE: The knife a gentleman would carry.

    (verified owner)

    The knife is a work of art. I would gladly buy it even with the minor quirks.

    The finish is nearly perfect, except for a few hot spots. A few strokes of a very fine file and they were gone.

    I wear extra-large gloves, and a three finger grip is the best I can get, comfortably. I don’t know why I would need more grip.

    I cannot deploy the blade with the thumb stud/disc. Without the stud in place, the knife looks like it is missing something. I left it in for aesthetics. The flipper requires a little effort. The action is smooth a silk. I did apply a little bit of Finish Line Extreme Fluoro grease which helped.

    From what I understand, Lion Steel was trying to appease all legal requirements for carry, and in that regard, they nailed it.

    I wish they had made it a flipper only removable and no thumb stud/disc option.

    It was very sharp out of the box.

    The pocket clip works very well, and being so light, one could wear it in the top pocket. It would look like ballpoint pen.

    I don’t think of it as a gentleman’s knife, compared to the Lion Steel CK Spear Point Barlow, but I do think it’s a knife a gentleman would carry.
