My favorite neck knife is the Masters of Defense Scorpion. It's very light and is extremely sharp. Don't ask me how I know.

I am a huge fan of neck knives for utility carry only. The problem with neck carry from a personal defense standpoint, is that the knife can move very easily away from the point you would expect it to be. I think a mercharness would be a better choice if you are going to carry a knife for defense otherwise neck carry will suit you just fine. I have several neck knives I would suggest like the Bnchmade Instigator, Cold steel spike, and Emerson La griffe. I really like my Kabar Becker Necker for your average chores. And you really can't beat ESEE knives formerly known as Rat Cutlery. Pick up one of their Izulas you really won't regret that knife the warranty is one of the best on the market plus the knife is just down right amazing.

thanks guys for your suggestions. yeah this is more on utility use and yes for looks...... lol. i don't really like knife fights/attacks. Unfortunately, I witnessed my dad survived a knife attack when i was young. he had a total of 24 cuts and stab wounds.
this is my main PD knife.

I have both an Izula and 2 Becker Neckers. I carry the Izula everyday around my neck. I cant say anything negative about it. I love the Beckers too, but found that in my daily life I was knocking the knives out of the sheaths. So I carry them on my belt instead. +1 for either but I strongly reccomend the Izula.

Here's what I carry. Economical and handy. Let's be honest if I'm in a situation where I'm digging for my neck knife it's to get him away from me so that I can get my primary.
It is a Gerber Guardian Back Up that I've had for years.

I tried a fixed blade neck knife......it didn't work out.....I sliced up a good shirt drawing it.. In an emergency I''m afraid I might end up slicing my own chest as I draw it!...........so now I use a Kershaw leek held in a kydex holster. It's closed until after it clear my shirt & CHEST, before I open it.

The CRKT is a little bulky for neck carry, IMO. Decent knife, but the scales are awfully thick. They're removable, so you could do some kind of cord wrap, and get something along the lines of my La Griffe.







Or, you could just get a La Griffe. They aren't all that much more expensive than the Bear Claw. You should be able to get one for around $60.00.
