Description

Description

Alan Folts is a knifemaker and metalworker in Greenville, N.C., who makes a remarkable range of custom objects, including titanium chopsticks. His Minimalist® neck knives have proven to be very popular, so we are now offering three CRKT production versions.

They are very small and lightweight knives which give surprising comfort and control, thanks to the unusual geometry of the full-tang blades, aided by three finger choils, friction grooves for the thumb, hand-contoured green-black Micarta® scales, and a braided fob. Unlike many small neck knives, this handle is really functional for a wide variety of daily cutting tasks.

Each Minimalist comes with a custom-fitted Zytel® sheath and neck paracord for inverted carry as a neck knife. The knife is held securely in place by a positive detent which locks the base of the blade in place for maximum safety. Because the knife and sheath weigh about two ounces together, it is a personal carry you will barely notice.

Minimalist® Tanto. The 2.125" Tanto blade shape is very strong because of the strong central spine of metal which extends nearly to the tip. This version has a straight Razor-Sharp front edge, which allows push cutting, and a concave main edge which feeds material into the edge for fast cutting.

True to their name, these really are minimal fixed blades, but they are also the most useful for their size that we have seen. And they are certainly a great value, which explains why the Minimalist family continues to grow.

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.
