NSP CSE Butter Knife
The CSE Butter Knife is a Carl Schaper creation. Carl Schaper is best known for his longboards, but his Butter Knife is second to none when it comes to his mini-tank designs.
“We have had so many guys come back so stoked on riding the board they originally bought for their daughter!” ~ Carl Schaper

NSP CSE Butter Knife design
The CSE Butter Knife with its classic outlines, perfect performance longboard rockers, and well-thought-out volumes is a winner across the board. Suitable for all abilities, surfers get to ride these as single fins in smaller conditions and discover their nose-riding potential. And when it gets a bit punchier, you can just slip in the side bites and you have a perfect riding board for just about all conditions. As a thruster, a Butter Knife is balanced and predictable. Pop in a quad setup and use a bucketload of speed and increased bite to your advantage.
The CSE Butter Knife comes with a 4+1 fin configuration allowing you to get creative in your setup. Try a quad, thruster, or even a single fin. NSP positioned the Surf 10 fin box slightly further back on purpose, making a realistic thruster setup work out as well.
All Butter Knives come with FTU fin boxes and are compatible with Futures® Fins (fins not included).
NSP CSE Butter Knife Construction
Built with NSP’s Shaper’s Union Custom Surf Epoxy (CSE) layup, they’ve come up with a unique glassing schedule for the Butter Knife, instead of a one-size-fits-all technology. The boards come with a clear UV-stable resin and satin rub finish and are combined with a CNC-cut EPS core, laminated with full 220g (8oz) biax glass + 4oz deck and 6oz bottom, a 4oz fin patch, a 6mm wood stringer, bottom carbon stringer, and carbon-reinforced tail, giving you a durable, high-performance longboard with flex that feels light and responsive.
