    Quite a while back, I posted asking about neck knives. I love the neck knife for work. I work offshore, and wearing a small blade under my shirt comes in handy and doesn’t offend the safety man.... because he doesn’t know about it. ;)

    It’s also nice, when wearing bulky impact gloves, to be able to pull the chain out of my shirt and pop the knife out rather than trying to shove my Kevlar and polymer armored gorilla hand into my pocket.

    Well I received a lot of good suggestions, but @badglide9705 messaged me and offered to make me something up.

    Stainless blade and Kydex sheath, Micarts handle scales, nice small blade, not affected by sweat and chemicals. Beaded chain so if I were to get caught in a PTO or something it won’t rip my head off. The sheath is super secure for handle down carry.

    I originally didn’t like the big thick handle, but in use it’s fantastic. Makes using it with those gloves on much easier. The flat grind works great for cutting grass rope and such. Fantastic little purely functional blade and it’s now my EDC.

    In fact in my last job I had several guys try to buy it from me. They failed. Once again, Big thanks to a BCUSA member! Great job man.

    Love the profile on that... perfect EDC blade for me. Handle scales would be thick if it wasn't intended for you to use while gloved up... bare hands, or more normal-medium sized hands would probably prefer a thinner handle scale. It looks great!
