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™.
In 2016, Hans released his first book about his record setting speed climbing accomplishments aptly titled "On The Nose, A Lifelong Obsession with Yosemite's Most Iconic Climb", information here.
Hans has been climbing for over 32 years and is the world-record holding speed climber of The Nose on Yosemite’s El Capitan. So he knows the importance of making every ounce and handhold count. That’s why he designed blades like the NIAD™, that can carry their own light weight on a climb and tools that open with one hand. Because when you’re on a 5.13 or in a remote camp, you don’t want the equipment you’re holding onto holding you back.
