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® Bowie. We offer this deep-bellied clip-point Bowie style 2.125" blade for those who desire a classic hunting knife blade shape. The Minimalist Bowie makes a great wilderness carry, and can be used for camp chores, cooking, and even skinning and dressing in a pinch. It is also an excellent survival knife.

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.

Good for the wintertime when you're wearing thick gloves, you can hang it around your neck and access it easily rather than fumbling around in your pockets
Nice Neck Knife
Seth M.
I purchased this being unsure about carrying a neck knife. But this changed my mind, its low weight, sharp blade was right on. I thought I would dislike the handle, but to my surprise I thought it was very ergonomic.
Thank God its Sharp
Derek S.
I got this knife about 4 months ago. It is incredibly comfortable and very convenient. The belt mount is a little bit awkward, but not really a problem. Its also very sharp passing all 3 sharpness test: paper, shaving arm/leg hair, and accidentally impaling your hand not not feeling it because of how sharp it is.
Not for me
Scott B.
I purchased this knife and carried it horizontally on my belt. It's definitely small and is easy to carry discreetly, but so is a quality, small folder in the pocket. The handle is surprisingly comfortable, although the lanyard was annoying to me, it didn't help for handle purchase so I removed it.
In my opinion a fixed blade is a knife for harder use than you'd expect from a folder. This knife is in no way heavy duty and I really couldn't justify carrying this over, or in addition to a folder. It's a great throw it in a bag or in your car and forget about it until you need a knife for small tasks.
EDC Stud!
Sean M.
This little guy is awesome! It's been in my EDC for the last 6 months and I love it. I carry it horizontal on my belt and I forget it there at time. Even for a little guy because of the handle design and lanyard you get a great grip on it.
everyone should have one
Tyler K.
I have this knife on my keys and it’s on me everywhere I go. It’s also small enough and thin enough that you can carry it in pocket if you wanted to.
Light on the hip
Lucas A.
This is one fine backup knife for the hip. I love the design, small but feels nice. The sheath works nice Though the screws on the belt attachment feel like they can be torn easily. Along with that the knife steel does feel a bit soft which means it will need to be sharpened frequently and being that it is so small that is an issue.
Eddie K.
Definitly in my top 5 all around, top 3 neck knives fur sure!
Best Neck Knife I've Used
Jace M.
Small and fits my had perfectly, though it may be less comfortable for others due to the finger grooves. While the steel is comparatively low quality, it sharpens easily, and takes a nice edge. Conceals under shirts like is not even there and comes with paracord and a belt attachment, both work great. The lanyard is easily removed by taking the scales off, if desired. It's the best budget EDC neck knife I have yet used.
Amazing Handle
Ricardo A.
ThIs knife feels so comfortable in hand. It seems a bit weird but seems to fit into people’s hands perfectly.
Superb for the purpose
Jason E.
I carry this knife around my neck daily. Does not print even under a T shirt, quick to deploy and even after 16 hours it's lite enough not to notice.

Sharpens to razor quickly and with normal use, holds the edge well, also even against skin I've never had a problem with rust! I own more expensive neck knives but none better at fulfilling the purpose!
