2385 description
Alan Folts is a knifemaker and metalworker in Greenville, N.C., who makes a remarkable range of custom objects, including titanium chopsticks. His Minimalist neck knife has proven to be very popular, so we are offering our new CRKT production version.

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 resin impregnated fiber scales, and a braided fob.

The Minimalist comes with a custom-fitted glass filled nylon 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.

Carry all the time. Prefer the Wharncliffe. Have purchased 3, given 2 as presents. Amazingly useful for something so small. Some say never bring a knife to a gunfight. I suggest bringing at least 2 guns and as many knives as you can practically carry. This is one that is always handy. The straight edge is very easy to sharpen. The tip is pointed enough to pierce plastic packages but is easily controllable to prevent over penetration. Use many times a day for different tasks.

One of at least 8 CRKT blades I own. This thing holds a wicked sharp edge and really comes in handy for those small jobs. The finger notched handle makes it perfect as a small knife. I'm always wearing it on outdoor excursions.

Great little knife right here. Very light and ergonomic, it is truly minimalist.

I really like the Wharncliffe. I wear it comfortable around my neck. You can't even tell its there. The craftsmanship is excellent.

This is the second Minimalist that I have bought. My brother admired my first one so much that I gave it to him just to shut him up. This little knife comes razor sharp out of the box and is ready to go. The case hangs inverted perfectly from a lanyard around my neck and is very easy to get to. It can be worn inside my shirt for those occasions that I don't want to show it off. I recommend this knife without reservation.

This CRKT knife is one of the best investments I've made. It is wicked sharp and handles well. I like the solid feel as the blade snaps in place when returned to its sheath. I recommend this to anyone who doesn't have the room to reach into a pants pocket for a folder. It is right there and handy. A well made and handy knife. Jim

First CRKT knife I bought at Cabelo's was Minimalist Wharncliffe . I had always used, what I know as a one handed knife, but having a fixed blade a tug away was light years better. Fishing, sailing, hiking, hunting, never without it at work opens packages, envelops, strings, ropes. Advantage: didn't have to fish through my pockets, to find that one hander. Lanyard just long enough, not to get caught between my shoulder and the stock of my gun. I am sure someday, someone will build a better mouse trap, but good luck.
