Nell Knives

Custom knifemaker Chad Nell is a perfectionist at heart and truly one of the industry's best. His folding knives scream quality while being very aesthetically pleasing. They are built tough enough to get any job done and will instill in you a true sense of pride in your ownership of one. He uses the best available materials and time-tested manufacturing techniques to bring handmade quality and durability to every knife.

The Hardline is one of Chad's favorite models as it's such a versatile platform. He has a lot of wiggle room within the handle to give you a variety of blade shapes depending on your intended use. Whether you need an EDC, tactical, camping, hunting, or survival knife, the Hardline could possibly be all those things, and more! This beautiful three-inch-ish variant features a hand rubbed satin ZEB-L stainless steel blade with some of the best flipper tab jimping in the business. The handle is polished brown canvas Micarta with polished Zirconium bolsters, pocket clip, and backspacer. All those materials mesh perfectly over a solid orange peel textured titanium frame, giving you a ton of strength in such an elegant design. We love the look and ergonomics of this impressive flipper, now it's up to you to put it through its paces as you can rest assured it's designed and fully capable of hard, hard use.
