The back of the blade has ridges to provide some extra grip. A sound frame lock blocks the blade. The end of the frame lock is protected by a piece of extra hardened steel and can be replaced if necessary.
If you want to, you can block the blade with the RotoBlock System, which almost turns it into a fixed blade knife. This proves that, however beautiful the knife may look, it is still first and foremost made for hard work.
A small tool is also supplied, to remount the pocket clip and adjust the hinge if needed.

The lion steel sr1 is close to perfect in my opinion. The looks are beautiful, the milled aluminium one piece handle looks and feels really solid and comfortable. The blade is tall with a thick spine and a nice bevelled top. Other reviews online talk about the teflon washers not allowing the blade to open smoothly but I can flick it out with a satisfying snap pretty easily. The d2 blade is shave sharp out of the box too which is always nice.
