    Love neck knives too. In the woods I wear a Mora.

    Everyday I carry my talisman, a Simonich Bitterroot in Talonite...

    Hi all,

    Here's mine in 1/8" A2, Scandi grind, with 1/8" Micarta scales and brass pins. The thumb dent is the end result of a happy accident while finishing the edges.

    [​IMG]

    The sheath is punched to rivet inside a pouch that will hold other essentials.

    This one made it into rotation before I could even seal the handle scales. No safe queens here.

    My favorite neck knife is my RAT Izula. I love it! Fits my hand very well; especially with the cord wrap. Built like a tank and I like the sheath too.

    I second that. From this angle, it looks to have that Khukuri-ish shape to it. Love it

    Bushpuukko do you find that this thing to be big enough to handle most woods tasks, aside from chopping, and things of that nature?

    Yes I do. I bought it for small game hunting such as squirrels and rabbits etc. Obviously its not a full size knife but it does well when I need a small knife. I have large hands and this little knife fits well, a lot better than the Becker BK-11.

    Some examples of little knives I've had:

    [​IMG]

    Top to bottom: RC-3 and Breeden custom kat. Both of these are too big for a neck knife, but if I had a choice while working on wood between the knives pictured, my hand will always go to one of these. I have another RC-3 with plain edge that I prefer.

    CKE2 little bushcrafter. Kind like a kephy. Came with a nice kydex neck sheath and a 2nd kydex belt sheath. I ended up gifting it to a really good friend who uses it all the time.

    Jimi Wade scandi necker. A local knife maker from Windsor. He made three of these and I'm always glad I managed to get one of them. Its made of 1070 steel, gets sharper than hell. I keep changing the wrap on it. Came with a kydex neck sheath and I switched it out for a sharp shooter leather sheath that also accomodates a firesteel rod.

    JK backup. Nice little kit or neck knife that came with a leather neck sheath. I ended up trading this one to sweeten a deal.

    I also have 2 RC-Izula's. The Izula is one of the most versatile neck knives I have although it gets pocket carry for the most part. I really like the KSF leather sheath for this thing.

    I generally find neck knives too think of scale to really do any kind of carving with, but they are great for stowing in PSKs are carrying as EDCs as an alternative to neck knives.

    The top knife is an old demascus steel knife that i re-shaped,re-ground and re-handled in red deer antler,brass and oak.

    The bottom knife is left over scrap o1 tool steel that i forged into a micro neck knife,the handle is some left over curly birch.

    Wood .....no idea
    steel......no idea
    I'll ask the chap who made it and get back to you
    How do I keep it in the sheath...Very clever this bit there's a magnet in the sheath which also aids single handed re-sheathing.
    This is one of only 4 made by a very good friend of mine I'll be seeing him this weekend so I'll find out all about it and post it here.

    A couple of months ago I became the proud owner of a JAAT necker. I am going t do a full review with more pics and a vid in the next month or so.

    Note the expert 550 wrap done by yours truly. Some day I am going to learn how to make that look nice. Once again note the poor shavings due to the convex edge.

    [​IMG]

    These poor veggies didn't have a chance.

    More to come!!!

    Kept this one in reserve, a small neck knife called the BushPup made by Geoff Bosworth (GBos on the forum), that i received as a gift from a good mate of mine.

    Antler scales with black liners, scandi grind

    Initial review thread & video i did when i first received it

    http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3079&highlight=bosworth

    What i really like about this is the sheath, it just looks like a regular leather pouch and gives nothing away as to what is actually inside.

    Let's see your neck knives!

    I have seen a lot of neck knives and am torn on what suits me. I am going to be receiving a mora companion in the mail in a couple of days and want to see what people are carrying/setups and their views on them.

    I've got several, however the Fishwolf Necker is by far the most comfortable in my hand. I have a couple of BK-11's but the handle feels too short. I have a few Newt Livesay NRGS's as well and they are great knives, I just wanted to go with something flat ground as opposed to hollow ground.

    Made a neck knife survival kit according to Pict's video. I like it.
