Dave Curtiss is a US knife maker who makes knives for everyday carry that are built to last and worked hard. The Curtiss Knives Nano Liner Block Black & Red ($225) is his most compact offering. It features a 2-inch stainless steel blade with a tumbled finish and S.P.O.T. pivot system that makes for easy opening. The handle is made from black & dark red layered G10 scales (G10 is made from woven fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin) for a solid grip. A titanium pocket clip finishes off this awesome blade.
