PRICE: $170.99
In Stock
SKU:

Taking inspiration from the work of custom knifemaker Bob Lum and the traditional Chinese "Shilin Cutter", the Lil Lum combines timeless tradition with modern innovation. The unique leaf shaped VG-10 blade has a broad, curved belly with exceptionally smooth edge geometry. This Sprint Run model features a brilliant blue handle crafted from Nishijin, a glass fiber textile created in Japan over 1,200 years ago.

Why choose this knife?

  • Traditional Chinese folder design
  • Leaf shaped blade allows for long, clean slicing
  • Full-flat grind minimizes cutting friction
  • Rare Nishijin handle scales
  • Ergonomic curved handle shape
  • Skeletonized liners reduce overall weight

Why not?

  • Short blade cannot handle large cutting tasks
  • Wide leaf-shaped blade creates extra bulk
  • Eye-catching handle may not appeal to tactical users

Pro tip:
"Flat grind" knives maintain their thickness through most of the blade, then taper off quickly at the edge. "Full-flat grind" knives have a long bevel that extends all the way from the spine to the edge. Flat ground blades have greater strength, while full-flat ground blades create less drag.
