Lion Steel Knives was founded in in 1969 in Maniago, Italy by Gino Pauletta and his wife Cesarina. The company continues today under the direction of their sons; Gianni, Daniele and Massimo. The brand Lionsteel was inspired from a lion steel sculpture, handmade by Gino's grandfather.
The family-owned Italian company made great strides in quality with a large investment in top-of-the-line machinery. Lionsteel Knives continues to introduce designs that are advances in technology and quality. The Lion Steel SR-1 knife is the first production folding knife (that we are aware of) to include a full integral titanium handle! The process to create an integral handle in titanium is both time consuming and requires extensive machinery tool investments. The result is a stunning knife that is both extremely attractive yet incredibly strong. The Lionsteel knife model SR-1 was awarded the coveted "Most Innovative Imported Design" at the 2010 Blade Show in Atlanta.
The philosophy of Lion Steel Knives is to produce the knives using the highest quality materials and world class quality control. KnifeArt.com is proud to offer Lion Steel Knives to our discerning group of customers - those who appreciate the quality of a fine cutting tool. We have a wide selection of Lion Steel knives for sale.
