LionSteel is an Italian knife company and, if you haven’t heard of them, it’s about time you did. They’re not a new company by any means but are gaining recognition throughout the knife industry for their extremely beautiful and high quality tools. LionSteel, like many companies, has a flagship model which they’re best known for; the SR-1. It’s a large, tactical/combat, frame-lock folder with a wicked 3.7″ blade and a handle made from one solid piece of machined aluminum or titanium. This makes this knife one of the stoutest on the market. LionSteel also manufactures some EDC/gentleman’s folding knives and higher end money clips but they are best known for their recent collaborations with DPx Gear for the HEST Folder and with Spyderco for the LionSpy. Everything is done in-house in Maniago, Italy from design and conception to stamping and finishing to ensure the utmost quality control. See the new LionSteel products at www.knifecenter.com.
