    I have for giggles been buying neck knives, some are below $8.00 yes below eight Yankee Dollars. For a tool, for caching or stuffing in a pack for utility work they are an outstanding value.

    I have a Becker Necker BK11, that is actually a favorite blade of mine. Short enough to be handy but if need be, long enough to use in a defensive or offensive manner.

    Mines attached to my GHB with 1/8 inch bungy cord. I have it on my left strap so it can be drawn fast. Similar to how I used to keep my service knife attached to my LBE (Load Bearing Equipment). Old habits.

    Now I have another Christmas present from me to me. I have been looking for a good neck knife for some time. Thanks for sharing, Sourdough.

    not that close, its a bit like wearing a loose necklace, the idea is that you don't lose it, its always there when you need it.
    I've seen outdoors types do the same with a bushcraft knife.

    It is locked into a Kevlar sheath.

    My point of this thread is they "Don't" have to live as a neck knife. The last bunch I ordered were $7.83 delivered to the bottom of my mountain in Alaska. I think that is crazy cheap for a useful tool. I can stash them everywhere, and use them as gifts or trade post SHTF.

    most neck knives are fairly tight in their sheaths, if they weren't they'd fall out.

    This is as good a demo as any. Goes along with the philosophy if it is important enough to carry it should be tied to you. No matter what happens you will not likely lose this knife if it is around your neck.

    Is the cord holding it in place around your neck, strong enough that it won't break away if pulled on?

    I am in the hunt for something other then a cord or rope or chain. Something more like a 1/2" wide flat fabric like you would see on the winners of Olympic gold metals. Needs to be sturdier then a ribbon. What to wear neck knife and some medications.

    I have every intention of using a lanyard. If I can't find one that fits I will use rawhide. I would think my knot would be the weakest point.

    Have you considered para cord with the inner cords removed? It flattens out to almost 1/2 inch and is very strong. I would recommend adding a quick release to the cord. In case it gets caught on something or someone gets hold of it. Easy to be strangled to death on a strong cord, either accidentally or on purpose.

    Question.........do people sleep wearing their neck knife......??? I do.

    But then consider that in the field I also sleep wearing a G-19X. Seems that my local carnivore monsters have little respect for the sleeping.

    I never wear anything around my neck as I often use forestry machinery. If you get caught up wearing something around your neck things can go bad very quickly.
    I always carry a SAK as an every day carry, never lost one yet.

    Seems like "How" and "Where" I live things are often going bad very quickly, having nothing to do with my neck. Life is lived near the edge is "well".... near the edge..

    I never sleep with anything around my neck. I seldom have anything around my neck period. Even dog tags used to drive me crazy, when I had to wear them. Usually kept them tied in my boot laces.

    That is a cool little knife SourDough. I could see that lashed to a pole for a spear or similar.

    Truth be told, I'm hard on knives (and vehicle transmissions).

    I have some quality knives that hold a great edge. Do I throw them in my toolkit? No. A cheap knife works for the stupid jobs and the jobs for which knives were never meant to be used. Sometimes they will even double as a "decent knife".

    Found a cheap knife in a pawn shop. Rough shape, grimy-bad, hard to open and close. It was mine at $15. Got it home. Turned out to be a Spanish Muela. Never got it totally back to good condition opening/closing-wise, however that blade will hold an edge like a razor. The puppy is dangerously sharp.

    I've got a crud knife in my vehicle's console along with some other quick access tools (pliers, screwdriver with swap tips, ... that stuff) my toolkit in the back of the SUV is huge, has pulleys, a come-along, ropes, ..., kitchen sinks, ..., train engines, ..., horses, ... gyroscopes and kaleidoscopes and moon rocks.

    I typically carry a neck knife in the winter for ease of access when I’m fully bundled up and cold. Easy access when your fingers are cold, and in the alaska winter darkness is important. In the summer I typically carry folded knife on my belt and skip the neck knife.

    I received my M TECH neck knife yesterday. After a quick review (it is supposed to be a Christmas present) I was reasonably impressed. The knife is the one from Sourdough's link. Seems to be very sharp right out of the box. The sheath is black and looks exactly like the ones Dalewick showed in his picture posted earlier.

    The fit in the sheath is very tightly. It came with a black chain which runs through the bottom two holes of the sheath, so it would hang upside down. My intent is to put a lanyard through the knife, and have it hang right side up. How well it holds an edge, and how long the sheath remains tight only time will tell, but for $8.00 I am very pleased.

    I have several M Teck blades and have been pleased with all of them. I like the skeletonized blades for Kneck knives and have several of them. The one below hangs beside my chair in the living room and is a great package opener and such. My wife carries one in her purse as well. When I wear a neck knife I usually use 95 paracord for the cord and have a breakaway snap connector on it so if it hangs it will pop off. They require them on all ID badges worn in the prisons so they are common here.
