I have a few... (including five from ESEE)
What's your favorite necker?
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.
Thats super cool idea. Wish i didnt sell off 90% of mine now !
Fortunately, there are always more to acquire!
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.
Im still waiting for the jubglas pic dangling off someone to make its way here
It crossed my mind to throw one up.
Here is my Shaerks Last Ditch Necker
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.
I would say custom. But I haven't seen any posts from him since Covid.
Thanks man. I gave him a follow on Instagram. He's got a lot of great work on there.
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.
Here are a few of my newer neckers. The top is a Rainier Knives Fastpak and below is an Amsler Mini Hurricane. Both of these are exceptionally lightweight.
I've always been curious about those Hurricanes. It seems like a great candidate for a secondary easy to carry blade.
