Designed by Tommaso Rumici, the Viper Knives Dan is a non-locking Gentleman’s folder that melds form and function seamlessly. First we have a non-locking, sub-3″ blade of beautifully satin finished N690 in a highly utilitarian Wharncliffe profile. The blade is paired with a cleanly contoured handle for comfort with nested stainless steel liners for strength. Round it out with a discreet, secure, deep carry stainless steel pocket clip for carry and you have the Viper Dan, a gentleman’s folder that nears perfection.
Brand new and Direct from Viper Knives of Italy
The Blade: The Dan 2 sports a Wharncliffe blade made from N690. It has a highly attractive satin finish on the nearly full height flat grind and a slightly crowned spine adding to the classy look of this gentleman’s folder. A short swedge at the tip delivers a fine point for enhanced piercing as well as detail work. This is an everyday workhorse blade wrapped in a classy package.
The Handle: The handles are ergonomic and contoured to provide comfort and security even during long use. This version has Burgundy Canvas Micarta scales attached to nested stainless steel liners. The liners also contain the Action Stopper mechanism, a set of detent balls that deliver secure, non-locking operation that is similar to a slip joint. A partial titanium back spacer provides a solid mount for the reversible, tip-up, stainless steel deep carry clip. The slim and smooth design nearly disappears in the pocket.
About N690: Bohler N690 is a conventionally produced stainless steel with Cobalt and Vanadium added giving it performance at or above VG-10. This steel is very stainless, has good edge retention, is relatively easy to sharpen and takes a fine, razor edge. For every day carry and use N690 delivers excellent performance.
