Very nice! One question though - who's the manufacturer/what's the type of that very nice knife? I love the grind on it and it looks like a very solid piece of steel smile

nice deal all the way around.

what's the knot called at the distal end of the lanyard - looks like a one strand turk?

Consciously I know that it isn't much of an actual risk but wearing a knife around my neck feels like the first act in a play where the final scene is me laying there dead, having accidentally 'fallen on my sword'.

I feel the same way about wearing a necktie. It's like the opening act in a drama that ends in a hanging.

There are ways around that. If anyone wants to know give me a nudge and I'll start a thread.

Please start a new thread and link it inside this thread so that I know you started it, thanks. I have a similar fear, except my fear involves the knife falling out of the sheath when I break out into a sprint.

do you think it happens (being choked to death by a neck lanyard in the bush) more often to people than say getting hit by lightning? I know people, including sailors have been wearing things around their necks without breakaway for thousands of years.

Don't know about the bush, but working aroung industrial machinery all my life, I don't wear anything around my neck, wrists, etc. I don't even wear my wedding ring. Plenty of industrial accidents involve clothing or jewelry gets sucked into rotating parts.

Why voluntarily put your head in a noose?

I normally carry a ckrt stiff kiss with paracord lanyard. For safety I connect free ends with a safety pin wich should breakaway. Also could be used for fish hook in pinch or sliver remover. Multi-tasker.
