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® 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.

I think this is a great little knife. I never carried a fixed blade prior to this. Easy to wear around the neck and easy to throw on my belt. I think this is just a solid knife, came pretty sharp right out of the box.
The perfect EDC

This bad boy is awesome! Came in real sharp, and it cut me on the first day that I had it, so in my book it is meant to be. I have it currently set up to carry on my belt with the handle pointed down. You think you might be scared to do that, but the sheath holds in the knife real good. I have gone running in it at night just to have some form of security on me just by slipping the waste band of the gym short between the belt loop and the sheath. Didn't move one bit, and it is so light that you don't feel it. The run was about a mile and a half so carrying it upside down is no problem.
Small package that packs a punch!

I only recently picked up this knife after countless people badgering me to get it. It suprised me at first because of its ssmall size but once I picked it up it fell right into my hand like it was meant to be. I wear a large glove to give a frame of reference. This knife is perfect for a smaller scout carry or as a neck knife. I love it more than I ever thought I would!

While you can pocket carry, or use a clip, the sole reason i got this one for a good edc neck knife. Light and its always accessible when i go outdoors, or at work. Very concealable, if necessary. Quality made, perfect grip to get a hole of. Downsize is that its sharp, but not the best edge in the world. Going to roll with it for a while, but may decided to put a better edge on it. Also, for the price, i cant imagine someone not loving to get this as a gift.

Small, light weight, really great scout carry or neck knife. The steal is soft but this is CRKT, what do you expect. The size makes it legal basically everywhere and its a great design.

This is a great small fixed blade that's lightweight and fits well in my med/large hands. The deep grooves in the handle really lock it into your hand which makes it a lot easier to use despite its small size. I'm not one for neck knives but I tried once wearing it around my neck and it's not bad at all.
Great neck knife

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
