Product Description

We think our Pro Guard offers several features that are sure to appeal to any neck knife aficionado. Inspired ty Fred Perrin custom knife, it's thin, flat, light as a feather, and comes complete with a terrific Secure Ex® sheath. Without a doubt, what really sets it apart from the competition is the big advantage it offers in overall length, and its blade to handle ratio. These advantages are made possible because the Pro Guard's fiendishly sharp, slant point blade includes an integral finger hole, which in turn makes possible the use of an abbreviated pistol grip handle. It's fitted with G-10 scales and skeletonized to save weight, making it a natural in the forward/reverse grip. And, thanks to the integral finger hold, there is no possibility of the hand moving forward on the blade on impact or losing control of it due to the effects of centrifugal force.

There's really nothing bad to say about this knife. Its light as a feather, the handle is short yet grippy, the knife is sharp, and the finger hole provides excellent retention. It was a bit smaller than expected, but not all that much smaller. Cold Steel designed it to be a neck knife, but while its not a huge knife, for me it just feels a bit too large for neck carry. Still, I'll keep the included chain just in case I change my mind on that.

While the knife is virtually perfect, the sheath does have some drawbacks. It is secure, but the locking aspect of it is likely to be frustrating to some. It just seems like it could be a bit more simplistic. When unsheathing it, as you depress the locking button the blade slides out, but the problem is your finger gets stuck on the the plastic guard. It's just not much of a smooth, quick draw at all.

To remedy this I took a Dremel and cut that plastic ring guard thing off. It helps tremendously getting the knife out of the sheath quicker and easier. Still, the sheath doesn't feel as as functional as it should be. I wish Cold Steel would have made it a bit more versatile and not just mainly as a neck knife. A belt clip would have been a perfect addition. For now it works deep in my side pocket, though a Tek Lok might be added at some point.

Despite the shortcomings of the sheath, I still love the blade. Not too big, not too small. Perfect grip, amazing retention with the finger hole. While, it could make a fine utility knife, the design is primarily self defense oriented. The grip is amazing, and it would be near impossible for an assailant to remove it from you without cutting the palms of their hands to bits. If you're debating getting this, go for it. No regrets here. Excellent product.

I have been using Cold Steel products personally and professionally for at least 15 years. I have many of the their products and even on those occasions when I try a new style or different brand of knife or tool I never hesitate to check the Cold Steel catalog when I'm looking for something I need. This neck knife is a perfect example of a product that is well-made, well designed and priced perfectly. I wear this blade while running or exercising and on those occasions when a fixed or folding blade is an unworkable option. The blade itself is very sharp and ready for duty immediately out of the box. The Kydex sheath is both light and strong and allows the blade to be drawn silently and quickly. It takes a bit of practice and familiarization with the blade and sheath to make replacing the knife as smooth as the draw. The Point Guard blade is my favorite style, but that's only a personal taste. If you have chest hair, I suggest wearing this setup with an undershirt or compression shirt to keep from getting "snake bitten" by the chain. Also, Kydex gets slippery when it gets sweaty. As I said, Cold Steel makes a top-notch product and I give their brand and this knife the highest possible recommendation!

Looks exactly like as pictured, doesnt rattle, or anything. Feels very solid and light. The sheath is tough, but its new atm, im hoping itll be easier to work when it gets older. However, my reason for 4 stars, is the blade is NOT 4inches(it says so in the description), it is 3" and 1/4. They must conisder the rest of the 3/4 of an inch where its flat underneath the main finger hole. Rather irritating, I specifically bought this knife because of the large blade to handle ratio, and wanted around a 4" blade. So that actually really is very annoying. However, it still is a good overall knife. It is smaller than expected too.

Oh and I have medium sized hands and this thing does feel like it was deigned for me. The grip is excellent. Im able to essentially make a fist while holding it, so someone would have a hard time ripping it out of your hand. Its light, and looks decent. Came quite sharp, enough to shave arm hair, but literally not leg hair. So its sharp enough for most tasks, and of course self defense easily. Needle tip seriously it has a VERY sharp tip, and it looks good and strong.

This is an awesome addition to my selection of EDC(Every Day Carry or as I sometimes like to think "Emergency Defensive Combat")items. I will say that I plan on threading some paracord through some of the eyelets to make a sort of loop at the tip in order to attach a 1/2" wide J-Hook Lanyard instead of the ball-chain it comes with,just to make wearing much more comfortable (on the neck and chest hair if no undershirt)and strengthen the only weak point I have found. You know, in case I yank too hard or firmly without being unhooked from the sheath so nothing breaks or rips apart like the ball-chain definitely would. Also will be able to configure different carry options using the paracord and multiple eyelets. That is what they're for right? Get this knife. You wont be sorry -Unless you forget your wearing it and try to get on a plane-

Unsurpassed level of confidence for such a small knife.The G10 handles are actually faux G10,and i found that putting the knife back in its sheath dulls the very sharp edge very fast.If you want optimal sharpness for self defense,dont mess with it,or be prepared to sharpen it constantly.All in all,great weapon for anyone to use effectivly for self defense
