Three Rivers Manufacturing (TRM) adds to its growing stable of knives with upcoming releases, the entry-level Viator slipjoint and the high-end Kaguya flipper.
The Viator (shown below) is a modern slipjoint, with a G-10 handle and sub 3-inch drop point blade. TRM hit on that blade length after fielding user responses to their Nomad folder. “People that used it loved it, but for some it might have been too small,” says Marianne Halpern, company Co-Owner. By staying right below the 3-inch mark, the Viator maintains broad legality while expanding into some other cutting roles that may have been beyond the Nomad’s 1.9-inch cutting edge.
