i'm working on my first neck knife, this is a the prototype for a batch of six i'll be making, it's 10mm/4" long, the blade is CPM D2 and handle is ghost G10
i would like to hear some input about the design from you guys.
thanks, Lee Lerman
I like it and think an upswept blade like that works well on a necker knife.
More edge in a small blade & the thumb rest area is perfect for control of a little knife along with the index finger cutout. The handle shape looks comfortable and efficient as well.
then i won't recomend you a neck knife it's around your neck all the time, but all the kidding aside it's just a small light knife allot of people do like to carry them on the neck but it can carried with the sheath in the pocket.
Neckers came originally from parts of the world where people didn't wear belts and sometimes even clothes. What makes them a cool and practical knife these days is that if you are camping/hiking or say canoeing and lose all your gear, if you still have your neck? You still have a knife to help you get home.
There is also the tactical element of surprise and other Rambo wannabe type features of this carry system too. Remember that Nat Geo Channel now has a series on prepping for a Zombie invasion!
I am working on a Rhino Necker knife pattern of my own. I will have it out in the next few months.
I would just like to say again how much I think you are spot on in design with this one.
