Climber’s Lightweight Companion

The NIAD™ climber’s knife is a compact, heavy-duty folder that’s ready for action. Designed by Hans Florine, a world record-holding speed climber from Lafayette, CA, it’s a minimalist knife with maximum function.

The super lightweight knife features a simple two-piece design—because you don’t want anything complicated while climbing. A stainless steel blade sits against the frame to eliminate the need for a sheath. This is 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.

The NIAD climbers knife is available for $39.99 through CRKT.
