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.

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

Got the Warncliffe and LOVED it. So handy hanging around the neck, ready for one handed use. I don't know how I did it, but I lose it after about a week. I suspect I didn't fully snap it into the sheath. I called CRKT to ask if the alloy would be detected by a metal detector and they very graciously offered to send me another one "just this once." AMAZING customer relations. I think I'll be buying one for my wife and a couple more as gifts.

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.

I have carried this little knife around my neck, under my shirt, every day for a month. It is perfect. I don't notice it at all during the day, it is comfortable, and fills my purpose of being there if I ever need it.

I love this knife. The blade is razor sharp and the weight of the whole thing is so minimal you don't even notice it. I use it every day on my ranch for doctoring work and it is one I highly recommend to anyone wanting a light handy and versatile tool. Will be purchasing more
