Customer Reviews

Not my favorite but still a solid knife
Kyle F. on Apr 16, 2020

I got this knife as a gift. The blade shape is not something I would've picked for myself and as a result it doesn't get much use. I have used it as a scraper and it worked well and the edge held up just fine. I love the minimalist series and the handles are all super comfy. For the price though you can't really go wrong. Biggest complaint I have with this and all the minimalist knives is the sheathe doesn't really hold up well to constant use.

Tiny little wharncliffe
Alessio V. on Mar 12, 2020

I was surprised with how tiny it is and how well it fits in your hand. Perfect little neck knife. PD: It came super sharp out the box!

Great small knife
Michael P. on Aug 31, 2019

It fits perfectly in the hand. I have no idea what I will use it for but it is great to look at.

Perfect small EDC fixed blade
Nathan H. on Jan 19, 2018

I originally bought this knife as a neck knife, but after a few months I tried carrying it with the included belt loop and couldn’t be happier. Although it’s not the greatest of steels it takes an extremely sharp edge and hold it fairly well.

The Most Minimal
Jeremy T. on Jan 18, 2023

Of the many Folts models in my collection, this one is my least favorite. I like the edge and blade profile, but the hilt is just too thin. It still works well as a tool for scoring materials, opening paperwork, light cutting, but other than that, I would put this model lowest on the the "Scale of Minimalists".

Great little fixed blade.
Matthew H. on Dec 10, 2022

I love this little guy, and have had one for years. The only downside (and why it's not 5/5) is the blade steel. You have to sharpen/strop it very frequently, even with light use...And light use is the only thing this is designed for. I wish Cricket would re-release these in D2, 14c28n, or 154cm. "super steels" like M390, S90v, lc200n, etc. would be great, but would also raise the price to $100 or more...

First Necker
Dane F. on Jan 12, 2021

This is the knife that got me started with neck carry in 2009. The simple design replaced all my larger folders and was at times my only EDC item besides a wallet and a cell phone. I learned the value of having a neck knife, from the shower to the bed always there. Simple, effective, and small... too small for many cutting tasks and not the best woodworker. Steel edge retention leaves a lot to be desired but at this price point, it's as good as it gets. I quickly upgraded to an Izula but I learned a lot from this knife about what I want in a fixed blade and what I don't.

Great Little Neck Knife
Kimmer S. on Jul 26, 2020

The ergonomics are simply outstanding, I feel like any hand size will be comfortable with this knife. Love the wharncliffe style blade, great for opening boxes or other EDC tasks. The sheath is a little lacking though, it doesn't retain the knife very well, especially if you have the lanyard on it, I've had it come out of its sheath after getting caught on a table, so that is something to keep in mind. But for the price, I don't think you would have an easy time finding a better option!

Well crafted and designed!
Jacob H. on Dec 9, 2019

This is a wonderful knife made for working! It's comfortable to handle, the jimping has good traction without being too aggressive, and the blade is a good size for most tasks, especially detail work/ I would have given 6 stars if the sheath came with a scout carry option. But otherwise, this knife is more than worth the money.

Gets the job done
Eric W. on Feb 22, 2019

It is great for a small blade. The handle is surprisingly comfortable to hold onto. The “para cord” lanyard that comes with it is very uncomfortable and the clasp is garbage. I put a ball chain on it and it works much better. The sheath could be a bit tighter cause it has almost fallen out on me a couple of times. Great knife t carry when you don’t have any pockets.

easy carry
Jake A. on Jan 8, 2018

Bought this for my mom to take running and she loves it. carries it regularly and is comfortable using it when she needs to. I only wish it had an upgraded steel.

minimalist is an apt description
Johnny J. on Aug 6, 2020

A miniature, budget steel "knife", made in China, with a handle designed for the rare first-three-finger grip technique. The best feature is the (relatively) low cost.
