Designed by Tommaso Rumici, the DAN model from Viper Knives is a sleek folding knife for everyday use. The model name DAN is an acronym for "Daily Assorted Needs" and is followed by a number that identifies the blade shape; 1 is the drop point blade and 2 is the wharncliffe blade. It is equipped with the Action Stopper® slip joint mechanism to comply with restrictive laws in urban areas, yet provides the essential edge for your daily chores.
The DAN1 has a drop point blade and this model features a carbon fiber handle with a titanium spacer and stainless steel pocket clip.
I have been eyeballing this knife for a while now and decided to pick one up. So glad I did, the one handed opening is easy to use and very convenient. The carbon fiber looks amazing and feels perfect, the deep carry clip is an added bonus, the satin finish on the blade is done beautifully, and the ergonomics are great as well. The blue anodized titanium isn't as vibrant as it is in pictures but is still well done. The blade centering on my knife was off by a bit but everything else is done so well I can get past it. If you're on the fence I'd say give it a go and if you're in an area where you are restricted to non locking or sub 3" blades, then this is a no-brainer.
