Alan Folts is a knifemaker and metalworker in Greenville, N.C., who makes a remarkable range of custom objects, including titanium chopsticks. His Minimalist™ neck knife has proven to be very popular, so we are offering our new CRKT production version. Here is a very small and lightweight knife which gives surprising comfort and control, thanks to the unusual geometry of the full-tang 2.0" Wharncliffe blade, aided by three finger choils, hand-contoured green/black Micarta® scales, and a braided fob. The Minimalist comes with a custom-fitted Zytel® sheath and neck paracord for inverted carry as a neck knife. Because the knife and sheath weigh only 1.6 ounces together, it is a personal carry you will barely notice. Unlike many small neck knives, this handle is really functional for a wide variety of daily cutting tasks. The blade point gives excellent penetration, while the Razor-Sharp straight edge is perfect for scraping, woodworking and precision carving. True to its name, this really is a minimal fixed blade, but it is also the most useful for its size that we have seen. And it's certainly a great value. Blade: Length: 2.0" (51 mm) Thickness: 0.10" (2.4 mm) Steel: 5Cr15MoV, HRC 55-57 Knife: Overall length: 5.00" (127 mm) Weight: 1.1 oz. (31 g).
