Whether at home or in the outdoors, having a handy utility blade is a must. With the Minimalist® series of neck knives by Alan Folts, you're ready. Five uniquely different blade styles and deep finger choils give you convenient cutting power when you need it most. All the time.
The Keramin™ is a full-tang, stainless steel knife with a bead blast finish. The handle has resin infused scales that are ergonomic for detailed cutting control. The tip is designed for extreme detail work and is needle sharp. Prying is not recommended with this blade.
The Keramin™ includes a multi-position, removable belt clip that attaches to the sheath. Attachment hardware included.
**Note: the first production run of the Keramin featured a small aesthetic hole in the blade. We have since made a running design change and later editions no longer include a hole. Collect one of each for fun!
Pros: Sharp, full tang construction, concealable, solid grip, light, inexpensive
Cons: Fragile tip area, grip leaves pinky off, limited uses
The Keramin is a great knife if you use it for what it is - a defensive knife that is designed for slashing your way out of a tight spot. It is small, light and easily concealable. The kerambit style blade is great for defensive situations. This knife isn't a utility knife for opening boxes at work. The blade will dull fast in this capacity, and the tip will be prone to breakage in heavy duty work. If you want a great little pocket knife for defense though, this is a great option, especially for the price

Knife is very sharp straight out of the box. The tip of the blade is super thin and may be easily broken if used for others uses, but it is my tactical defense neck knife... So, I don't really need it for any other use. The knife is exactly what I was looking for, in a fighting weapon.

One HECK of a neck knife I wear mine everyday. I love mine so much I bought another just to put away for my collection. Great work Alan Folts and CRKT

I love this ever so slightly modified kerambit. Small enough to wear around ones neck but be in hand in a hurry if need be. Great stuff
