I certainly would not want one on paracord, but on a ball chain maybe, something that would break away easy enough to prevent it being used against me in a scuffle.Personally, I am not a fan of anything around my neck. If it won't fit in my pocket or hang on my belt, I do not want to carry it. It is just a personal phobia
Great little knife design. It kinda reminds me of when I pulled out my camera phone and snapped a picture of a knife at big 5, the clerk asked if I liked that knife, I said yes, I liked it enough to wanna make one of my own!For many years now I have worn a HideAway knife on a lanyard around my neck. The one I carry is made from Titanium, so it's very light, doesn't rust, and doesn't really get very cold. I'm very fond of the nearly "drop-proof" design. I also have a tiny Drake mini Titanium flashlight attached to the knife. It goes everywhere with me, and is completely innocuous.
Good choice for a solid all around knife, no question about it.FWIW...I have finally landed on my neck knife.....I got an ESEE Izula II. I absolutely love it. It has been my EDC since Father's Day (when my wife got it for me). Incredibly handy, razor sharp and solid in the hand. It outclasses all other neck knives I have tried. Plus...it's made in my home state of Idaho!
Yup....matter of fact I got the Izula 2....it comes standard with the scales and it's another half inch longer than the original Izula....fits in the hand quite nicely!Good choice for a solid all around knife, no question about it.
You probably already know, but they sell scales for the Izula if you ever want a thicker handle on it. There's also a whole variety of big brothers and sisters that make great survival knives if you ever want to expand, though there's not much you can't already do with that Izula.
never saw the need for a neck knife. Why would you want it hanging around you're neck ? I never liked wearing jewelry, or even a wristwatch, something around my neck is annoying.
I don't think that's the point here (pun intended).SO let me get this right....We are actually talking about knives based upon where we wear them instead of what they are good for????
Hey I'm not trying to beat anybody up...I had just never heard of a neck knife, but admittedly I am not a big knife guy. I carry a good pocket knife, and I have a field knife, I may choose to carry them anywhere on my person, except for the crack of my ass, so I was just poking a little fun at it. No ill will intended.I don't think that's the point here (pun intended).
Why do you carry IWB? I've never seen the need. Why do you carry in a drop leg? That seems silly to me. Everybody should carry on their chest rig, because that's how I do it. See where I'm going with this? The location of the knife doesn't matter; the op prefers to carry it around their neck. I'm not entirely sure why that bothers anyone.
A knife is a knife, so long as it serves the purpose and isn't made out of tin (or by Gerber).
