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.

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

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.

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!

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.
Great neck knife!

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.

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.
