Viper Setter Knife


Hello! This is another video in this series
of Viper knives. Viper is a company based in Maniago in Italy. Maniago is very famous
city for knife making and Viper is one of the biggest companies there. This time I will
be showing you a Viper Setter. It is a knife similarly designed to Viper Pointer but a
little bit bigger. As you can see all Viper knives comes in a same packing. Now lets
look at the knife. The knife comes with short manual in English and Italian; explanation
about material used, maintenance and care, about the company, about the address for warranty
claims and all other useful information and also about proper use and safety. Knife itself
comes in a really nice sheath made of real brown leather. It has a Viper logo on it.
It is possible to carry this sheath on a belt and has a one safety; classical safety like
on many other sheaths. Now the knife. The knife is fixed blade one-piece construction.
As you can see it is 25.0 cm long the blade itself is 13.0 cm long and the thickness is
3.8 mm. It has drop-point design, very massive blade; the height of the blade is quite big.
It is really nicely designed. The material used for the blade is Bohler N690. This is
stainless steel with high corrosion resistance; the steel is made in Austria in Company Bohler.
The blade carries Maniago quality logo, which guaranties that this is a high quality product.
The hardness of the blade is 57-59 HRC and it has drop-point design. The design is quite
special, not found in many knives. It has a small cross-guard and the handle is really
ergonomically designed for good grip and you can easily use this knife in any kind of situation.
The wood used for the handle is cocobolo. It is really nice wood, highly resistant on
water and other material with which this handle can come in contact. It also have two massive
screws for the handle, it has a sling hole at the end, small cross-guard and another
sling hole and specific thumb rest you can see it here. The other thing what is really
nice by this knife is that all the details are really nicely made and the quality of
the finish on a really high level like it should be for a Viper knife. This was a Viper
Setter made in Maniago Italy.
