NIAD Knife

The NIAD™ climber’s knife

Keeps you light on your feet. When they’re 2000ft above the ground.

This 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™.

Hyphenate Knife

the Hyphenate™ Knife

Bridges the gap between knives in places bridges don’t exist.

The Hyphenate™ is a fixed blade climbing knife. But it also likes venturing into the world of camping or anywhere in the outdoors.

Hans Florine of Lafayette, CA, designed the Hyphenate™ to seamlessly cross boundaries from camp, to the trail to the big walls he climbs. Being a world-renowned speed climber he needed a compact knife that could hold its own in any condition.

A modified tanto blade design has both a smooth and serrated edge that feels equally at home creating tinder for the fire or cutting yourself free if a sling or rope has you caught in a jam. This is a minimal knife with maximum cutting power yet is lightweight enough to keep up with you on any adventure.

The handle features two large holes that help with grip but they also shave off precious ounces you don’t need while climbing. A tough, glass-reinforced nylon sheath aligns with one of the holes so that you can secure the knife with a carabiner while not in use.

If you’re looking for a knife that can go the distance in a variety of terrain, you should reach for the Hyphenate™.
