I'm not sure there's anything I could say about this knife that hasn't already been said. It's light, comfortable in the hand and has a nifty cleaver blade. Add all that up with a price less than expected makes adding this to your collection a no brainer.
awesome ed neck knife

this is an amazing neck knife it is light sharp not too big or small and it fits in my hands very well I also love the design and Miranda handle would definitely recommend.
Good by itself, better with help

I love this knife, I love the minimalist, but I feel the cleaver blade has some weaknesses. These aren't solely the fault of the knife though, as many of them are intrinsic to the cleaver blade shape. for example, the lack of a point is somewhat inconvenient, and for this knife itself, the lack of jimping along the spine of the knife leads to a bit more of an uncomfortable scalpel grip, which is normally how I use my minimalists since the handle only has three chiols. Another complaint is the length, or lack of it. normally a cleaver blade makes use of it's weight, but this knife is so light, that it cant really do that. This is plainly because it's part of the minimalist series, and light and small is the name of the game, but I figure that even half an inch more length, and some more width would have made this complaint null. But again, I do like this knife, the exact nature of this knife makes it more convenient to carry and use, but I just feel that it could fulfill it's role better if it was given more specialization, and as I said in the title, I do think this knife needs a little help. What I'm saying is, this knife is worth it's price, but it could easily be worth double that, by adding a little more length, width, and maybe even a handle with a fourth finger choil. Hell, if any minimalist would be bigger, it would be this one, that and a better steel, 5cr15 is good for it's purpose, but a larger version of this knife in a higher-end steel could see a lot of success too, and I really feel that the fact that this is a minimalist is holding it back. There's basically a quota of included features and qualities, and I'm just thinking about how a compact EDC fixed blade cleaver would have been an amazing addition to CRKT's already star-filled roster, and putting it in an existing group made it lose some of it's luster.
SO FRICKIN COOL

This little blade is so awesome. Comes with a belt clip if you're not into neck knives (like me). I've hesitated getting one of these for years, but when the cleaver came out, I knew I had to try it. Surprising how comfortable this tiny knife is in your hands. Everyone always mentions it, but I was still blown away. Great little summer carry piece. Great bottle opener too ;)

This has mainly been in my pocket around the house. Been used for boxes, scraping off stickers and that sort of thing and the edge has held up well. I LOVE the grinds on the blade itself and the shape is super cool. Like all the minimalists I own the handle fits perfectly. Great knife for a great price by a great company.
Sweet EDC knife

Been carrying this or about a week now and after cutting open a bunch of boxes its still sharp. A few things I wish they shipped with is a small bottle of loctite as the screws keep backing out of the sheaths belt clip and this knife in black G10 scales, the green micarta isnt my style. but over all a 9 out of 10 knife.

I'm in a fairly tolerant working group so I've been able to neck and pocket carry without comments. The neck carry in itself is awesome for accessibility and this thing is small enough to not intimidate. Great choice for me.
Great, inexpensive blade

Solid build. Comfortable handle for it's size, well designed blade. Small enough for pocket or neck carry but big enough for easy use.
Cool Blade

This is a pretty cool little blade. Nothing too special about it. Useful? Sure for some fun little kitchen stuff or cutting boxes. The steel isn't the best but you don't buy this knife for the steel to buy this guy for how cool it is. And it's cool.Buy this knife if you want to be a cool person. Skip it if you just don't have the cash to blow. This thing is pretty neat but usefulness is down.

Yeah it's great! I have the wharncliffe version already and this was a no-brainer. Still super comfortable in hand and the sheath retention actually has improved.

I wish it came with a pocket clip instead of the belt loop, and I wish it had a sharpening choil, and I wish it came in a better steel, but these are minor quibbles. For the money, this thing is great.
