    Does anyolne carry a neck knife?

    I have a couple but have never carried them around my neck now I have a job where a knife would be out of place and I am thinking it may be a good option.
    Any opinions on good knifes and or neck carry in general?

    I bought a small one made by Cold Steel. It was nice and easy to wear, I hardly knew it was there. BUt when I worked on a car, while laying on my back, or doing any physical activity, the darn thing would be behind my back or swung some where under my shirt where i couldn't get to it.

    so, into the junk drawer it went.

    I work at a Fire Department where it is perfectly acceptable to where a knife, I usually carry a Cold Steel Recon 1.
    I also work at a Emergency Room where a knife is considered a big no-no, not by rules but it gets bad looks and comments from people even when I carry my CRKT K.I.S.S.
    I often end up running to get lunch or down the street to another building and at 3 in the morning the neighborhood is a little questionable, so it is nice to have a friend with you.
    Considering thw work I do there I don't think it would flip around too bad.

    I'm not a big fan of neck carry.

    If it draws too much attention clipped to your pocket, clip it to your waistband and blouse your shirt over it.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Just for the heck of it I tried carrying a Benchmade Snody Instigator around my neck.

    Okay way to carry but, after practicing, I found it was not easy to get to and draw with ease. Wearing it under a shirt made it cumbersome. Great little knife though.

    Tanto blade neck knife

    Here's a neck knife I carry that costs less than 15.00 & is razor sharp:

    When I was a new copper I carried two guns and three knives, one of which was a neck knife. It's only foreseeable use would have been some kind of last ditch scenario that was unlikely to ever happen. Since it really didn't serve any useful purpose, I threw mine in the "junk drawer" too!

    I just wear a Super Edge by CS when I go surfing.

    No kidding, once I got tied up in the rope, had a hard time unwrapping me holding my breath.

    Where my board goes, the Super Edge goes with me.

    Not much use for neckies elsewhere...

    It a shame that so many end up in the junk drawer. With being a college student and saving for my 1st gun I dont even have enough money for the drawer let alone the junk. lol.

    A full junk drawer is synonymous with being old!

    I used to use a neck knife until one day I picked up a 50lb bag at work with it on. When I did, the bag hit me in the chest (not hard), and the knife came out of the sheath, turned sideways, and stabbed through my shirt. I shudder to think how it would have felt if it had turned the other way and stabbed into me. That was the last time I wore it.

    I generally wear a Super Edge on chain around neck.
    Also have Urban Pal on keychain.

    Who knows, could be the slight edge needed to bail you out, and I don't notice either one of them.

    I feel real bad! I have 3 full junk drawers and working on my 4th!
    The real problem is we move every 3 - 4 years and I do get rid of the "junk". The new name is "TREASURE DRAWER"!

    Yes - I have 2 "neck" knives. I have carried them on very special occassions. They serve a useful purpose in certain environments.
