The Viper Dan 2 is a stylish friction folder with nice deep-carry pocket clip. A friction folder is a folding knife with no real locking mechanism. However, you can feel some resistance on the blade which keeps it from closing. The front flipper opens the knife easily. In opened position the flipper is located on the back of the blade where your thumb would be. Pushing down your thumb keeps the blade opened during use. Friction folders are popular in the United Kingdom and Germany because they can be carried around legally. In addition, it is of course also a beautiful mechanism which many people view as a great asset.
The handle is made out of stylish carbon fiber and the blade from Böhler N690 steel. The back of the blade is very nicely rounded which is typical for Italian pocket knives. The deep-carry pocket clip allows you to carry the knife discretely. Only the clip will be visible and not the whole handle.
The Viper Dan is available in two different blade shapes: the Dan 1 has a drop-point blade and the Dan 2 a sheepsfoot blade, also known as Wharncliffe.

This is my first uk friendly folding knife. I wanted something a bit more gentlemanly not something that looks aggressive and this fits the bill perfectly. Build and overall quality is spot on, I have used this everyday at work and home. And when anybody new sees it always get positive comments. So a great UK EDC.
