When it comes to craftsmanship, you’d be hard-pushed to find a more effective blend of innovation and functionality than Italian knife brands. Sleek but workable and reliable, it’s one of the best regions of the world for fixed or folding tools.
Viper Knives are a really good example of this. Around since 1987, their brand is known for its rich heritage but also its innovation particularly with mastering working with Damascus steel.
Based in the Maniago area of Northern Italy, the company is nestled in a traditional knife-making region, meaning you can be sure of excellent craftsmanship.
