Viper is a subsidiary of the Italian cutlery company Tecnocut. Tecnocut seems to make a number of commercial grade knives and tools, and their Viper brand seems to be more consumer oriented. Tecnocut also acts as a distributor for some international brands. Viper’s knives range from more traditional fixed blades and gentleman’s folders to larger tactical knife offerings. Most of their products do seem to have a blend of old world materials and modern manufacturing, which I happen to find very interesting.
The build quality and fit and finish that I have seen on their products is very high, and their unique take on cutlery continues to intrigue me. Expect to see more Viper reviews in the future as I familiarize myself with the brand.
