Every TRM knife is not for everybody, but the Three Rivers Manufacturing team takes customer requests very seriously.
The NERD linerlock fills the need for knife lovers looking for a small knife (OAL 5-1/2” and a slicey 2.2” blade) with a locking mechanism. The NERD fits easily in your pocket (even in your “fifth” pocket) or even inside your waistband. The 3D contoured scales allow for a 4- finger hold, providing comfort and security.
TRM visible hardware is always kept to a minimum to maintain their clean lines.
The blade shape evolved over months based on customer input. TRM is always sure to make their bevels wide so that the full flat grind can be thin enough to be sharpened to a razor edge. TRM has earned a reputation for slicey knives right out of the box and the Nerd is no exception. The tip is strong for its use as a utility knife- cutting open boxes, cutting strings etc.
We won’t call it “prying” if you use it occasionally to remove a staple.
