    Default Looking for a neck knife that can go in my pocket if needed

    I have looked at the Izula, Candiru, Becker Remora, BK11, some of the boker knives (gnome, bobbi, etc). I want something that I can add micarta to. I know there are many neck knives but I also want one that can ride comfortably in my pocket as well. What would you guys suggest?

    Thanks!

    I daily carry a Bark River Bravo necker in my pocket, with a sheath i made for it. I love it. And it has the optional scales on it.

    It really depends on how big of a knife you want. If you want a smaller one, get a Candiru. They have micarta for them. If you want a slightly larger blade that you can get a good 4 finger grip, get a Becker BK14 (I can get a better grip on the 14 than I can on the 11). The 14 doesnt have micarta built specifically for it (like the bk11 does) but with a few slight mods you can easily get the Izula micarta scales to fit on it. Or you could get the zytel scales for it and they will only cost you 12 bucks. Then have Skystorm,Sagewood or another leather company make you a pocket sheath---

    I have the bk11 the Bhk frontier valley and Bhk long trail and a Brkt necker and necker 2 in 3v. I would recommend the Brkt necker 2 or the frontier valley. My buddy joked while dressing down a deer he kept calling it the scalpel. A2 and it was razor sharp after dressing out the deer.

    The Izula II comes with micarta scales, and you have the option of adding G-10 scales from The Knife Connection. I would post a link to mine, but unfortunately I do not have PC access right now. That is a picture of it in my avatar with custom G-10 scales and a custom kydex sheath from Godspeed Tactical.

    I have gone through a bunch of pocket-sized fixed blades. What I have settled on is an Izula with the ESEE micarta scales and a Vic Spirit multitool together in an Adirondack hip pocket sheath. I managed to shove a stub of ferro rod down in there too.

    I'd go Bark River Bravo necker. They have a few different sheaths available also.

    I am in the market for the same thing. I think I am going to give the Montana Americana mini roach belly a try. It is only $45, comes with a neck sheath and in hand forged with 1095
