ROK is the new LionSteel knife for 2018. It is designed by Molletta Design, while all technical parts are developed by LionSteel. This knife features two important innovations.
First, it introduces the new H.WAYL System, a LionSteel patent that allows to hide the clip while using the knife: the clip can be pulled out only when needed.
The second innovation is the NFC technology, which we added to the knife box: this way, you do not need to look for more information about the product, but the knife itself will give them to you: care instructions, details about how it was built, or general information regarding LionSteel.
Like in the TRE, the ROK has the option to take the flipper away, in order to have a knife that can be opened with one or two hands.
This knife has a SOLID Titanium handle with the Rotoblock safety system. The locking bar is reinforced by a stainless tip so it can't be damaged by the blade.
The blade is made of M390 steel from Bohler, obtained with powdering technology, with a 59-60 HRC hardness.
Overall length: 198 mm. - 7.80 in.
Blade length: 86 mm. - 3.39 in.
Blade thickness: 4.5 mm. - 0.18 in.
Net weight: 156 gr. - 5.50 oz.
Frame: Titanium 6Al4V
Blade steel: M390 Satin
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.
