Not sure what your particular wants or needs are , but I can tell you what I chose and why . I looked at many neck knives and small fixed blades to replace my folder as my EDC . My particular criteria was that it be as big as possible to be comfortable in the hand while being light and importantly "short" enough to fit "inside" my pocket with a clip , like a folder . It seems the average jeans pocket is about 7" deep , so I chose the Esee Izula because it's 6 3/4" allowing for some sheath room without having much of the handle sticking out of my pocket . Also the Rowen heat treat of 1095 is about as good as it gets and Esee's lifetime warranty made it the perfect choise (for me) . If you are not restricted by size the Esee Izula II with a longer handle is a great knife . I hope this helps , at least some .
