Wonderful Neck Knife but Too Rough to Wear (Same as Bowie)
STEVEN G. on Dec 14, 2020

I liked the Bowie so much--and being a fan of Tanto blade shapes--I had to get the Mini Tac Tanto, as well. My review of the Tanto is pretty much going to be the same as the Bowie review because of their overall design similarities. I believe the Mini Tac Bowie is a little bigger in the handle, so it feels just a tad bit more comfortable than the Tanto. Again, it's nearly a perfect neck knife. However, with the exception of the rough scale texture. I so wanted to love the Mini Tac, as well, but its scales are way too rough, too. I suppose if you wore an undershirt under your shirt it would be much better. However, against bare skin, it was very noticeable and hard to ignore the constant digging and scratching into the skin. I might try to sand down the G10 scale just a bit. I'm probably never going to wear this as a neck knife unless I know I can wear it on the outside of my clothes knowing I'll be in an environment that won't get me strange looks. Otherwise, I'd like to find a way to secure it on a go-bag. I'd really like to figure out a way to clip it on my waistline in order to carry it concealed because I'd love to carry a smaller fixed blade that still feels good in the hand and can be fairly versatile in its tasks. I'm always going to want better steel but for the money this an exceptional value. By the way, the Tanto is AUS-8A and the Bowie is 8Cr13MoV. When pulling the knife from the sheath, there is plenty of handle sticking out. However, I wish the primary finger choil was more accessible when initially grabbing it from the sheath. It appears that the finger choil is an important design factor in sheathing the knife. By the way, it secures really well. I just wish the sheath was ambidextrous (two-way)...whatever you call it...where you can insert the knife with the blade facing either left or right. It would help without having to pay so much attention to the blade direction if you could just sheath the knife either way. Like the Mini Tac Bowie, the jimping is very nice. It came a little sharper than the Bowie, but I still had to show it some love on the sharpening. Speaking of sharpening, the grind doesn't go all the way to the heel of the blade. Despite having a sharpening choil, there's a smile, which makes for awkward cutting towards the heel of the blade, unlike the Mini Tac Bowie that has a proper grind. While the specs say it has a 3.75in. blade, I'm measuring 3.5 inches with 3.25in cutting edge. Being a 3in+ knife, it feels quite substantial for such a compact design.
