    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 .

    For someone with 3 posts, you sure are short tempered with your all caps.

    All caps are considered shouting in text communications. FYI

    If by "tactical" you mean self-defense....any blade can be used as a self-defense blade. But I'm not sure what you mean by "tactical."

    Let's please get back to the OP's questions and provide a straightforward answer for him if you have one. We'll leave the civics lesson for either private discussion or another sub-forum.

    Maybe this is a better question: "How much "tactical" do you need/want?" If you are looking for a edc fixed blade that is used for general utility 99.99% of the time and could be used for SD....that is a different creature than a dedicated SD/"put a hurt on" blade that might be used for general utility.

    Come on guys, take the opportunity to educate the guy and not drive him off.

    Tactical is a buzzword in the knife industry. It's kind of laughed at by anyone who really uses knives and espeically those that train with them. A tactical knife is usually used to mean that it'll look really cool when you show it to your friends, but the steel is crap.

    That said, you want to look for either a neck knife or combat knife. When you say small, you need to let us know what small is to you. For purposes of my recommendation, I'm guessing 3" or under for the blade length.

    Personally, I really like the Becker BK14 / BK11 / ESEE Izula. The bonus on the BK11 is that you could call it a tactical knife and beverage entry tool. They're made from decent quality steel, their solid as can be, and if you don't like the bare handle you can wrap them or upgrade to scales from any number of vendors.

    If you want something more extreme looking, check out CRKT's kneck knives. They've got a bunch of designs that might suit your fancy.

    I watched a Youtbube video...I can get it done!

    Although it may not be a top choice in Self Defense/Tactical category you may want to check out Anza knives.

    If you're not looking for a conflict then don't provoke one. He asked you a valid question. Do you want a tactical knife that can be used in a pinch for utility work or the other way around? For instance I would not suggest a kerambit for utility work and I wouldn't recomend an AG Russell woodswalker for self defense. In order to give good advice, a little info on the intended use of the knife is required. As far as I can tell he's trying to help. Your the one coming across as the.....

    Next off-topic post or personal attack will result in infractions, not warnings. Let's try to conduct ourselves here like adults or move away from the keyboard.
