A 10 bucks mora knife attached with paracord, among other things. That's the way Mors Kochanski recommends wearing your bushcraft knife. You're more aware of its presence that way and it's more convenient when you're wearing a parka. Never lay your knife on the ground (especially in snow country), always put it back in its sheath. A knifeless man is a lifeless man.

Becker necker, Got one, nice and the price won't flatten your wallet. I don't think I would buy one of the NEW Becker/k-bars until they start to make them in plain old carbon steel like the originals. And of course the price comes down smile

try this for a bunch of neck knifes.

Here's a few ideas:

Buck Hartsook (S30V steel)



Buck Mayo Kaala (S30V)



Benchmade Instigator (AUS 8)



Chris Reeve Professional Soldier (S30V)



Benchmade Activator (S30V)




RAT Cutlery IZULA Neck & Survival Kit Knife (1095)




Tons of commercial options out there, with a huge range in price. Even more options if you start looking into the custom stuff or have custom sheaths made.



(Sorry if the pics are a bit large.)

I have the Cold Steel Spike Tanto, from their spike series. Absolutely sharpest knife I own. I can shave my arm with it.

I wonder why Ron Popeil doesn't demo his knives by shaving his arm. But wait, there's more! crazy

One vote for the Benchmade Activator Snody. Very tough little knife that can hold an edge and won't slip out of your hand. Do some searching and I'm sure you can find a good price.

I love Benchmade's Activator knives. I have both the smaller 210 and the larger 201+. The 201+ has become my go-to outdoors blade and favorite fixed blade. It's a strong stout blade, but cuts like a much thinner blade and has a great shape for outdoor work. It's a great size as well, big enough to be useful, but small enough to be easily carried (most of the time I don't even notice it on my side). I love the handle shape too, simple, but very comfortable and positive. I've thinking of having a kydex sheath made for it, like the 210TK, to allow me more carry options. smile

I wear a CRKT Ryan Plan B with partially serrated edge. It is a stronger bladed knife to complement my Leatherman Wave II.

I neck knife can be a problem is you use a compass. My knife is stainless steel but still throws off a handheld compass. I wear a nice watch with built in compass but I have to put the knife in my pocket to use the compass. I have had the same problem with other hand held compasses as well.
