Nilte Quiete Overview

Thanks to a good word by Andrew, Nilte sent me a Quiete for review.  The knife is a spectacular blade, leveraging all sorts of brilliance--both design and mechanical--to come up with something completely and utterly unique.  Here is my video overview:


You can find the Nilte Quiete here.

  1. Great unique folder...been enamored with it since Andrew premiered it on his TEO site. Have had my eye out for another of Massimo Fantoni’s designs ever since, with the hope they will eventually be available through upper end dealers. Thx for the overview!

    One a side note: You're an attorney now, not a poor college student...if you insist on visuals including your hands, how about popping for a manicure? Or at the very least, use actual fingernail clippers instead of the garden shears you've obviously used?! Looks like your nails were gnawed off by a rabid badger? I made the mistake of watching this while eating lunch and threw up in my mouth a little.

    1. Its going to be a long time before I get a manicure. Sorry about the nail thing, but I do lots of woodworking with my hands and frankly I am not so concerned what my nails look like so long as they are short and stay out my way.

    2. Are you seriously complaining about his fingernails? I have watched a lot of videos of people reviewing/holding knives in their hands and I have NEVER, not even ONCE, noticed the reviewer's fingernails. It just goes to show, I guess, that if you post something on the internet, people will complain about literally EVERYTHING.

      Now about the thing you SHOULD have been looking at - that's a great looking knife. I love how simple the design is, right down to the finish on the blade and handle.

    3. One more thing - for this type of knife and at that price, wouldn't something like micarta have been a better choice than g-10? I don't know what that particular g-10 feels like, but the rough stuff I'm used to seems like the wrong choice here. I guess we'll hear more about that in the review.

  2. I like it. Especially since it was a purpose built design in all the features. The lack of a thumb stud does not bother me in the least. But some kind of traction on the blade to open it safely would be nice. Even a nail nick would be fine. Two handed openers are fine as long as it was intention of the design. The weight must be amazing without all the metal unlike other knives. Too bad it cannot be sourced in North America. *sob*

  3. Nice overview, Tony. I handled Andrew's review sample quite a bit after Blade 2013 and I found the knife very endearing despite its unorthodox appearance. And I hate to agree with Anonymous, but we need to get you a tactical nail file or something... ;)

  4. Interesting knife. But I hope you continue to ignore the nail fetishists. I can't believe it's part of the discussion.
