    Hello All,


    I'm in the market for a new neck knife and have married it down to the above mentioned two. I'm leaning towards the mini scandi 2.5 but haven't really seen much as far as reviews go. It's a fairly new knife so that's why I'm assuming?
    The UTE is about a 1/4" longer at 6 1/2". Also both are similar in price give or take.

    I'm looking for an all around EDC blade that I can use at home/work/camping/bush/etc.
    I'm seriously about a hair trigger away from getting the MSK on looks alone. Looks has a big part in all my knife decisions. I'm hoping someone with experience on either or both of these knives can chime in?

    A big thank you in advance to any helpful insight!

    Edit: I don't own any Top knives so I would like to keep the choice in the Tops family. Open to any other neck size models though?

    I've read that the MSK is a mini version of the BOB? The BOB knife has been on my radar for a while. I may be picking that one up in the future.

    Been reading reviews on the BOB and man this is one awesome shiv! I may just skip the necker and go for the gusto and get the BOB?

    Do you talk me off the ledge or do I just jump? Lol
    This place is horrible for my bank account!

    We never had any involvement with the MSK, though I know we wish we did.
