The LionSteel M7 knife is a professional grade knife that is very well designed for many outdoor tasks. It is a great knife for many military and police applications as well. It is “built like a tank” to handle the toughest of cutting and chopping chores and still last for a lifetime. The knife handles very well in the hand and the balance point is just in front of the finger guard. The high saber grind allows for more steel in the upper blade portion making it an excellent knife for bushcraft tasks such as batoning. The high saber grind along with a wide blade profile from spine to cutting edge still allows the M7 to be an excellent slicer as well. The generous finger choil provides for choking up on the knife when doing tasks that require better blade control such as when making fuzz sticks or tent stakes. The handle is nicely contoured and is quite comfortable in the hand and the texture on the handle provides a secure grip. The Micarta handle is machined from a solid piece of material and is held onto the full tang with stainless steel screws. A lanyard hole is located on the pommel end of the tang.
The sheath is well thought out and completes a very nice knife and carry system as you can see in the pictures. The handle strap can be removed if desired since it is a secondary retention means as the knife fits quite securely in the Kydex sheath.
The overall length of the M7 knife is 12 3/8 inches with the blade having a 6 inch cutting edge. The blade width from spine to cutting edge is 1 ﾾ inches and the blade thickness is 7/32 of an inch (.220 of an inch). The knife alone weighs 14.5 ounces and with the sheath it weighs 22.2 ounces.
So whether you are on a military mission, find yourself in a survival situation, setting up camp in the Rocky Mountains or breaking down an elk carcass, the LionSteel M7 knife is totally dependable and will help you get the job done quickly and efficiently.
