Keeps you light on your feet. When they’re 2000ft above the ground. The NIAD™ climber’s knife is designed to be light in weight only. This compact, heavy-duty folder is ready for action. Just like the man who created it. Hans Florine is a world record-holding speed climber from Lafayette, CA who knows the importance of taking only what you need to conserve energy. That’s why he made every ounce count with the NIAD™. The super lightweight knife features a simple two-piece design—because you don’t want anything complicated while climbing. A stainless steel blade seats against the frame and eliminates the need for a sheath or additional parts while climbing. Welcome news for those who are looking for something that’s high-function but not high-maintenance. Additionally, a titanium handle resists corrosion and can be secured in place by simply putting a carabiner through the loop handle feature. So it’s climber ready whenever you are. If you’re looking for a knife that pulls its own light weight on the climb, get a good handhold on the NIAD™ Dimensions Open Overall Length 4.06 inches Closed Length 2.5 inches Weight .6 ounces Blade Length 1.56 inches Thickness .08 inches Material 5Cr13MoV Blade-HRC 56-58 Finish Stonewash Grind Chisel Style Tanto Edge Veff Flat Top Serrated Handle Material 6Al4V Titanium Lock Type Frame Lock
