Here is a very small and lightweight knife which gives surprising comfort and control, thanks to the unusual geometry of the full-tang 2.0″ Wharncliffe blade, aided by three finger choils, hand-contoured green/black Micarta® scales, and a braided fob.
The Minimalist comes with a custom-fitted Zytel® sheath and neck paracord for inverted carry as a neck knife. Because the knife and sheath weigh only 1.6 ounces together, it is a personal carry you will barely notice.
Unlike many small neck knives, this handle is really functional for a wide variety of daily cutting tasks. The blade point gives excellent penetration, while the Razor-Sharp straight edge is perfect for scraping, woodworking and precision carving.
True to its name, this really is a minimal fixed blade, but it is also the most useful for its size that we have seen. And it’s certainly a great value.
