    I have one. To me, it's a novelty. I wore it maybe half a dozen times and then quit. Annoying, distracting and sometimes just plain uncomfortable.

    I'll just stick to the folder in my pocket.

    Over 75% of the year it is dark in the morning when I do a premiter check with my dog. I have always worn a neck knife for over 20 years.

    Depends what you are doing. They are often over looked during weapon search's (same with belt buckle knives) and could prove to be a very good back up. But if you aren't one that would find yourself in that kind of a situation then it would just be a novelty knife.

    The biggest problem I have with a neck knife is that it will not stay in place if you are fighting with a BG.

    Depending on the length of the chain it can wind up under your arm or behind your back when you try to grab it.


    I advise getting a fixed blade and carrying it somewhere more secure than hanging around your neck that you can draw with either hand

    I have a KaBar TDI LDK affixed to my belt buckle. It is concealed, firmly mounted in place and accessible with either hand.

    neck knifes

    I've got several different neck knives that I use when it seems like I've just got too much "stuff" in my pockets. Generally I find a pocket clip knife is quicker to deploy, though, as I tend to wear neck knives under my shirt or sweater.

    I tried with a a CRKT SPEW but know it hangs off my bed post. If I'm using it on a project it's ok. Not a full time carry though.

    neck knifes

    I have an ESEE Izula and I love that little thing, but I rarely wear it as a neck knife. It is just too invasive.

    I have a Ka-Bar LDK laced into my boot laces and can get to it fairly quick. I keep it well oiled so it doesnt rust. The LDK can also be used as a neck knife but I found it hard to get to if I needed it quickly.

    I don't like neck carry for knives because of the awkward draw and the tendency for the knife to flop around everywhere but where you can easily access it. There is a sort of shoulder harness called a Mercharness made out of paracord that works brilliantly- Mercop makes them, and he is a member on this forum. Keeps a small knife under your shirt much more stably.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    Re: neck knives

    I just ordered an Esee Izula kit in Venom Green.
    Hopefully will get here soon. Not sure how I will carry it. Probably as a necker when I'm at the gym. I'm going to see if I can fit any more stuff on my belt. That or hang it down off of the pull tab on my cowboy boots.

    I've been carrying a CRKT stiff K.I.S.S for many years. It goes EVERYWHERE with me, even when I dont have one of my folders or fixed-blades on-hand. I take it off only for sleep and shower.
    But this is not always good- I sometimes forget I have it on me, since I'm so used to it. I once made it onto a plane for a flight- after passing through metal-detctors etc. (post 9/11). I got on the plane, got into my seat, and when I was putting on my seatbelt, felt it beneath my shirt and was like OOPS.

    Another good thing, is that when being patted-down by anyone, they almost never think to pat there...or bad, depends on who's patting you down, and why, I guess..

    Very handy, effective. I never use it for utility cutting, I had the edge sharpened by the guy that sharppens the surgical blades and tools at the hospital I was working at. I preserve the blade in case that one bad moment comes, in which it is needed for combat.

    Not sure how much combat you've experienced, but what I've seen usually happens faster than a hiccup. IMHO, there are too many consistent, easier-to-deploy, less-tangle-prone options for knife carry than "somewhere around my neck, concealed somewhere under my shirt". I want to find my defensive knife in the same place, EVERY TIME, ALL THE TIME.

    More than I ever care to have had, ty.
    As for the mode of carry-it's how I've carried it for years, and I'm used to it, and can get it into action quickly enough.
    Long as I'm not prone/ face down, there's no prob.
    But, it's rarely the only one I carry- most of the time, I've a folder clipped front-right pocket, and a small FB on the left hip, so if for some reason I cant get to one, or whatever, I can usually reach an alternate.
    But if/when I can only carry one, this is the one that's on me.
