Product Description

Product Description

Alan Folts is a knife maker and metalworker in Greenville, N.C., who makes a remarkable range of custom objects, including titanium chopsticks. His Minimalist neck knife has proven to be very popular. Here is a very small and lightweight knife which gives surprising comfort and control, thanks to the unusual geometry of the full-tang 2.0" Wharncliffe blade, aided by three finger choils, hand-contoured green/black Micarta scales, and a braided fob. The Minimalist comes with a custom-fitted Zytel sheath and neck Para cord for inverted carry as a neck knife. Because the knife and sheath weigh only 1.6 ounces together, it is a personal carry you will barely notice. Unlike many small neck knives, this handle is really functional for a wide variety of daily cutting tasks. The blade point gives excellent penetration, while the Razor Sharp straight edge is perfect for scraping, woodworking and precision carving.

I got this knife in the mail and inspected closely upon arrival. I usually look at all my knives with a BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Folding Magnifier to check the edge and for defects. This knife had a chip within the bevel of the blade. I could have honed it out but the edge already comes RAZOR sharp! It shaved hair off my arm but I returned it to Amazon and had a replacement a couple days later.

The replacement looked better but still not as clean a bevel as some higher priced neck knives. It too shaves hair from my arm and I'm not going to be *that* picky about an 18 dollar knife, especially a CRKT knife. Please understand they are not top of the line knife makers but they do produce some good knives. Having owned a handful over the years they all still serve me well and I feel this one will be my favorite CRKT knife as well as my EDC (Every Day Carry) knife.

I have already carried this knife from sun-up to bedtime for 3 days straight and don't even notice it's around my neck until I need it. Extremely light! I've used it on a couple day hikes and it is very comfortable around the neck and in the hand. If you are worried the Micarta scaled handle is too small for you, it's probably going to fit fine. The 3 finger style grip makes the knife very intuitive to use.... That is it feels more like a cutting extension of your fingers. Unless you have huge hands this knife should be comfortable to hold and work with. Even if you don't find this knife is for you.. At <20 dollars it could make a nice affordable gift for someone else.

I give the knife 4 stars because I believe there may be a slight QC issue with the actual bevel during the sharpening process.

This knife is very, very nice. Came sharp from the factory, and the tiny grip is much easier to use than one might think.

Sheath is designed well, and my one complaint is that the rivets that hold the sheath together can grab hairs on your chest. Easily fixed with some black fingernail polish though.

Overall, I highly recommend this knife to just about anybody.

I have owned this knife for about three months now. I didn't really like the looks of it when I ordered it, but those micarta scales look way better in person. It really is a perfectly designed neck knife. I can't believe that such a small knife can lock into your hand so well. The Jimping is nice and sharp. I have a couple of other neck knives and I will never use them again. I wear this every single day, and use it for most everything. The steel is pretty good. dulls quickly and sharpens easily.
Its just amazing to have such a capable knife in such a small package. It has to be one of the best designs out there.

I like it a lot! This is my first neck knife, so I don't have a lot to compaire it to, but I have several folders and am moderately familiar with blades/knives in general.

I have the Tanto point version in the mail, and am expecting to be just as pleased with it (though I wish they made it a straight bladed Tanto -- would be easier to sharpen). I initially chose the "wharncliffe" (spelling?) blade as it was completely straight, and as such I could easily strop it with the strip of leather and jeweler's compound I use for my carving knives.

I like the sheath and hopes it holds its level of retention over time. It is very light (the whole package), and I decided to make a Manx out of the Singapura as I cut the braided cord tail off. I know some people find it helpful, but for me it just got in the way.

It comes with "paracord", but it's not the real thing (not that much of an issue), but when I gutted it to make the cord flatter I noticed that the guts were not the "seven strand" of "real" paracord -- I just used some of my own gutted cord. I ended up knotting it at the bottom (a knot on either end of the bottom of the sheath) as this left the neck section "continuous" and smooth (no knot to deal with).

It also come with a neat little belt loop that can be screwed onto the sheath in case someone might want to wear it on a belt. Note - it is not a "belt clip" but rather a "belt loop". Though I will say the loop is wider than it looks. I didn't think it would fit a belt and it went comfortably over my two-hole leather belt that is easily 1 1/4" wide.

It is a small knife, and realize that if you are buying it.

While the fit and finish are not perfect I believe the light "ware&tare" appearance of the G10 slabs are attractive none the less. Wonderful fit in hand with only 3-fingers, the grip is extreemly secure for such a small knife! Edge, Sharpness, Blade Geometry are all there, and I can attest to the performance. The only downside is it is exclusively offered in Columbia River's standard mid grade stainless; I would love and be willing to pay for a similar design with upgraded materials, maybe canvas micarts handles and S-30V or similar? I dont know if CRKT can hear me but it'd be a wonderful full time EDC/Companion blade if improved, otherwise awesome inexpensive tool!
