Following the previous SOLID® SR1 and TiSpine models, both frame lock folding knives, we decided to launch a SOLID® knife with lockback. The task was a challenge, considering our decision to use Micarta and carbon fibre for the monolithic onepiece construction of the handle using four-centreline machining stations. The blade is available either satin finished or black. The clip can be fitted on either side of the handle, making this knife totally ambidextrous. The double spring lock back mechanism ensures greater flexibility in the mechanism and improved durability of the locking system.
TM1 is fitted with a glass breaker and a tungsten carbide point.Carburo di Tungsteno.
To enhance the knife mechanism, it has been supplemented with the IKBS system which envisages ball bearings to facilitate the blade sliding motion.

Molletta - Pensato Michele
Michele Pensato - aka ‘molletta’, his nickname in Italian – is a very active designer with years of experience. His previous life as an excursion lover and a passion for archaeology had him spending most of his experiences in the great outdoors, where he soon got to understand how a great knife should really be and what it should be capable of achieving. He led the Nexus production group and the group that was created at the MCKF Forum. A keen student of the steel industry, he stands out for his new approach to the use of materials and experimentation in thermal treatment applications.
An advanced user of design software such as Catià, Solidworks, Inventor, he applies FEA to design and aims to create yet more solid and innovative products.
