The Viper Storm is a tough, solid pocket knife, designed by Rick Hinderer. This is his first collaboration with a European knife brand. The Viper Storm offers the fantastic ergonomics and design features that you're used to from Hinderer, while at the same time you benefit from the excellent price/quality ratio that we've come to expect from Viper. Therefore, the Viper Storm is a must-have for every collection.
The blade is made from Böhler M390 steel, a European super steel that offers excellent sharpness retention and corrosion resistance. This knife has a beautiful satin finish, which gives it a very high-end appearance. You can conjure the blade up lightning-fast with the flipper or the double thumb studs. The ball bearings ensure that the blade moves smoothly.
The handle is a combination of a liner lock and a frame lock - the liners are so thick that they are about the thickness of a normal frame lock. At the same time, the scales are there to offer the comfort of a liner lock. It's the kind of hybrid we can't get enough of!
HMBS: Hinderer Modular Backspacer System
The Viper Storm features one of Rick Hinderer's innovations: the HMBS. This is a modular backspacer that you can remove or replace with the supplied Allen key, without having to disassemble the entire blade! A blue spacer with a lanyard eye is fitted as standard, but replacement spacers are available separately from Viper. Hinderer's HMBS accessories do not fit this model.
