    Been finding myself wanting a James Gibson necker as of late. Carry an Emerson La Griffe on occasion, but usually have a bigger Emerson in my pocket.

    Never cared for neck knives (though I have a few Izulas). You have a nice collection there.

    Here are some of my faves but far from all of them. I've got a thing, you could say, for necker's. I'm a little confused as to why I didn't actually start this thread, lol. Thanks for getting this one going. I may round up the gang for a "group" photo this weekend.

    I'm not familiar with Shaerks. Is it a handmade or custom maker? That looks like a nimble little blade that would slice well. I really like the profile.

    My little Elmax necker by Bradford. Having to frequently glove up on the job is the number one reason why I always have a neck knife on me or in my bag. Keeping a small fixed blade makes it easier to use and put away my blade.

    Neck knives are my favorite size of blade. Here's my current collection outside of one or two that might be tucked away in packs somewhere.

    If I had to pick a favorite, I'd go with the James Gibson, but the Candiru and K Paw have received plenty of carry time as well. The Mora 2/0 is mostly used for carving. The LT Wright usually ends up being our backcountry kitchen knife with the flat grind and AEB-L. The Izula is the newest and is quickly earning its spot in my kit.

    Never really been into neck knives but I always hear about the crkt minimalist. So saw that Walmart carried them now and decided to get one. I gotta say I'm pretty impressed with it, especially how well it fits in my big hands and I don't even feel it wearing it. IMG_20210215_141323223_HDR.jpg
