Good knife, smaller than expected
Corbin S. on Aug 14, 2023

This thing has been great so far. Way smaller than i expected and I have normal sized hands. I have not used the provided lanyard or belt sheath. I took a single IWB clip from my box of holsters and added it. Been carrying it cross draw appendix and love it. I forget I have it on most of the day, sharp as a razor out of the box. I have only used it to cut open packages and evidence bags so far but it is a great little knife to use instead of my Benchmade auto for the stuff that ruins and gums up a knife. Will probably buy at least one more blade style if not all of them.

Have all the minimalists, but I think the Keramin is the sharpest knife I've ever owned or used

The Underdog Minimalist
Jeremy T. on Mar 5, 2023

Most might look at a tanto profile with an inner blade curvature with some skepticism. After a month of use, the tanto point has done it's job well, and that inner curve makes it very comfortable cutting small rope, rounding wooden edges, and other small, round materials. I wear it hilt-up on the belt, making up 3 Minimalists on my front right belt panel (Warnhal, Tanto, Persian) and on the left, a horizontal "Katanamalist" set up for traditional cross-draw. Just a few away from having the entire Minimalist collection!

Great for Pajama Days
Mike R. on Jan 2, 2021

Got this little knife for Christmas as a stocking stuffer and have been wearing it around the house for the last week. The best part is that I don't have to have on pants! Christmas morning it sliced its way through plastic clam shell packages while the kids waited "patiently" for their toys. Made short work of clothing tags, beef jerky bags, cable ties around the legs of toy dinosaurs, Amazon boxes, and everything else the holidays have thrown at me. And all without needing pockets! Fits well in size large hand and is barely noticeable on my chest when laying on the couch trying not to spill drinks and crumbs on my shirt. Yet hefty enough to feel secure when the task needs a little muscle. I have only taken it off to sleep and shower (and being the holidays that is every 2-3 days). So yeah, I'm a fan. Might not replace my EDC knifes, but I can certainly see it gracing my neck on summer vacation when pants become optional again.

EDC perfection
Shawn D. on Dec 29, 2019

I carry this knife every day as a belt knife. I am more substantial, and with the fat roll at the belt wearing, this knife does not cut into my stomach and does not print at all. The handle is comfortable, even for my small hands. I recommend that if you purchase doesn't remove the lanyard as it acts as extra handle material for grip.

Nice little knife
Donald C. on Dec 7, 2019

Strong, full tang tanto blade that is interesting, but also very useful. The sheath fits securely, but is not too difficult to remove. the Micarta handle scales are fabulous! Great size for EDC.

My Favorite low imprint neck knife
Shane C. on Oct 22, 2019

This is my second Folt's Tanto. I gifted the first one to a friend who noticed it and liked it a lot. This is a no nonsense knife, with a low imprint. I can wear this under a t-shirt and no knows its there. This new knife came with a little do-hickey to allow me to adjust the neck loop easily. The older version did not come with one of those. The cordage is thicker and most would say it is better, but it is hard to tie the knot in the end the way I like it. I will probably swap it with some thinner cordage without the outer layer this one has.

I love all Minimalist knives!
Matthew B. on Sep 2, 2019

I love all of the Folts Minimalist series and I have them all. This one, the recurve tanto is the one I carry the most. Lot of cutting power in a small package. I love it.

Roger M. on Jan 28, 2019

Excellent control The full tang & scales. lock into your hand. Excellent blade. sculptures a Razor edge. The edge stays on it in. hard work. I own two and. getting more. Use extreme caution. while handling this knife. NOT A BLADE FOR. BEGINNERS

Great neck knife!
Ryker H. on Apr 21, 2019

I've worn this thing for a few days now, and I forget it's there. It's so light, yet feels like it could cut through anything. The handle grips are a very nice addition.The only downside is the blade is hard to resharpen.

Pros and cons
Colton Y. on Jun 12, 2018

great micarta scales, will fit someone with a large hand, but not great for someone with smaller fingers, despite it's size. Great sheath and retention, but difficult to sharpen because of the recurve and doesn't maintain edge particularly well.
