There is a budget neck knife made of 1095 with a rubberized handle...

    And I can't recall what model it is. I saw a thread a couple weeks back, but I lost it. It has a rubber coated handle with a lanyard hole at the end.

    It's like a $30 dollar knife, if I recall correctly. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    That's not the model, though those don't look bad.

    I think it was a smaller company, and they were made in Asia.

    There's the little Benchmark Necker that's 1095. Not sure what the handle is, but it's black. SMKW carries them, and they're all over the big auction site too. Around $20 or so.

    Could it be a Condor? I know they're out of South America, but it might be one of theres.

    All the Condor neckers have no separate handle material, just one piece steel knives; one model does come with para cord wrap. Made in El Salvador, which is Central America, btw. :)

    OP, you don't mean the little Super Edge from Cold Steel, do ya?

    edit: never mind, they're Japanese stainless.

    Benchmark BMK001. I saw them on Ebay a few months ago and considered buying one.
    Problem is one seller has them listed as having 1095hc blade steel while other sellers have them listed as having stainless steel blades. Some internet dealers don't mention what type of steel is used. Buy one and let us know if it takes a patina:). I would like to have one if the blade is 1095.

    I bought one of these BenchMarks with thick tanto chisel blade as a lark.
    Exactly same sheath design. The knife will fall out of it with the slightest jiggle. And it's not Kydex, so you can't heat it and tweak it. Maybe this one works better, I wouldn't know.

    That's the one. Only $15 bucks, too! It has micarta handles, though, I thought they were rubber from looking at the picture.

    Thanks, everyone.... I'm gonna get one of these.

    Interesting questions about the steel and the sheath fit.

    Anyone here own one of these and can chime in on these issues?

    Let us know how it turns out. I've no experience with Benchmark, and only recently saw some online, but there are a few that have tempted me.

    Dunno, but can tell you that you'll need to get rid of both that buckle clip thing (it's really heavy) and the pocket clip (which is attached with brad) if you want to comfortably use it as neck knife.

    There's a youtube video or two regarding the knife; I'm temporarily on dialup so can't preview.

    This is the one I have that won't stay in sheath upside down at all, but sheath looks identical except for knife area.
