COMMENTS: A single piece of titanium was used to construct the frame of the knife! The knife handle is 3d machined and anodized. The SR-1 feels fantastic in hand and extremely solid. Drop point blade design made from Chad Nichols stainless raindrop damascus. The integral bar lock has a reinforced hardened steel replaceable section - it really gives a strong lock. This steel section is replaceable after many years of use, bringing the lock back into it's original locking position. The SR-1 lock also features a rotating safety lock and over-extension preventer. The knife comes attractively packaged in a wooden display box. The SR-1 comes with a removable titanium clip and utility tool. Pocket clip can be mounted on the left or right as well as removed. Filed thumb rest on the blade spine for a secure grip. Dual thumb studs for easy right or left hand operation. Lanyard hole in the handle. Ultra smooth opening and closing. This damascus SR-1 is exclusive to KnifeArt.com.

The SR-1 was awarded the coveted "Most Innovative Imported Design" at the 2010 Blade Show in Atlanta.

Posted By: Yory Teperman - verified customer

This knife is a beauty. In fact, I do not know of any other knife for the price that is as well-designed and as well-made as Lionsteel SR1. It is very comfortable in the hand, very ergonomic, and the balance with its thick and heavy yet still very nicely proportioned blade is spot-on. There is this uncommon solidity to the knife and its operation – mostly due its monolithic CNC-milled handle, and the fit-and-finish are better than any ‘Spyderco’ or ‘Benchmade’ I have handled. The blade is perfectly centered and very sharp.

The hardness of Nichols Raindrop Damascus blade, to the best of my knowledge, is somewhere between 56-58 RC, which is a bit lower than the 61 RC quoted for their regular Sleipner (=improved D2) blade, but still makes a practical yet far more special knife. If you are a lumberjack and the utility is the only thing on your mind, then indeed you might be better off with a different blade, but for a casual user or a collector, the pleasure of owning the knife as beautiful as it is practical makes it worth every penny. The shape and size of the blade is a classic fixed-blade hunter, with a nice belly and some weight to it, i.e. it is a very good cutting blade.

The knife was shipped and arrived promptly. The only snag was that the website does not ship to NYC, so I had to get it shipped to my relatives outside of the city, which I found rather annoying nuisance, but not a deal-breaker, especially given that they are the only website I know of that carries this particular model of SR1. For now, I would say this knife is a keeper. Hope this helps.
