2391 description
Terry Renner, custom knifemaker and owner of TR Blades in Palmetto, Florida, is becoming well-known for his high-end folders and art knives. But he has a fertile mind, and the idea for the Neckolas came while he was toying with an index-finger-ring folder design. He says, "Rather than discarding the 'Hole Idea,' I thought of the fixed blade format, which led me to design a locking sheath which could be manipulated with one hand."

The result is the Renner Neckolas knife/sheath system. The orange 2391 features a blunt tip and full Triple-Point serrations for use as a whitewater and extrication knife. It will quickly cut through cord and seat belts without tip penetration.

The knife features a full-tang premium 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade, sandwiched between resin impregnated fiber scales and held securely by stainless steel pins and the finger-ring insert. As a result of this skeletonized high-tech construction, the knife weighs only 1.2 ounces.

The Neckolas sheath is really the secret to the system. Terry says, "I wanted a retention system that would release and capture the knife with the same motion. It occurred to me that composite materials would allow the sheath to act as its own retaining spring. The key to easy re-insertion is the thumb notch on the sheath top edge. Just insert the blade into the sheath and 'pinch.' The knife clicks into place. To release the knife and draw it, just 'pinch' the springbar extension with your thumb, which allows the blade tang notch to clear the sheath's retaining pin momentarily."

Terry also designed a reversible removable stainless steel clip system which allows left or right hand carry. He says, "This knife can be more handy than a folder, clipped to a T-shirt, pants or shirt pocket, or boot. Any place you can clip something, you can store the Neckolas for quick access." Together, the sheath and clip weigh only 1.0 ounce. The included black nylon lanyard allows wear as a neck knife, as the Neckolas name suggests.

For the Neckolas scales and sheath, we have chosen resin impregnated fiber, because of its rigidity and excellent strength-to-weight ratio.

Great little knife to have in an emergency when out hunting or just in the bush or dessert for cutting kindling or opening food or cutting survival plants. Former combat sniper

very unique knife. It is actually more durable or even stronger than i thought it would be. everyone who drives needs one of these in their car for cutting seat and shoulder belts in the event of an accident. Very cool item. I am getting ready to buy the blue version with the non serrated blade also. For the serious collector or knife enthusiast. Dave Lawrenceburg, Indiana
