"Pocket Rottweiller" has got to be the best name I've ever heard for a knife, but I don't think I'd want to end up in court with it!

Sheesh! I DID think $120.00 was alot to pay for a neck knife. And as far as your statement....You SHOULD get what you pay for.
Unless you can show me where a $250.00 neck knife is going to pull my keester out of the frying pan better or faster than the sub $50.00 fair that I normally carry. I ain't getting one. Now if the missus sees that pretty one of a kind hand made neck knife that she wants and it's $300.00, she gets it. No questions asked. Mamma gets what mamma wants. I just can't justify it for myself.
Hey IV, live a little! Indulge yourself too! Don't tell the world, but I got Michael Murphy of Running Dog Knives to do me a Pup in BG-42 and NOT a chisel grind too! Keeping almost in your price range!

Please do me a favor and check out the Tanto style knife at the bottom of my Website. I have had several requests to do a smaller version and a neck knife based on that design. The one in the picture is 11.5" overall,3/16" A2, Ti scales and silk wrap. I would probably use D2 for a neck knife being a smaller knife. What would be the maximum size you would still consider a neck knife???
I am a big guy and carry one of my tacticals (also on webpage) in a neck sheath. That knife is 8" long and I would say that is about the max for me in a neck sheath.
I'm new here, but it's very nice for me to walk in and find you folks talking about the Little PUP! (Thanks Copfish!)
This is our first introduction to a national market and so far we have had a great responce...
We do indeed have larger PUPs on the way...Our "Happy Camper" series is next up with a choice of blade styles...we are still working out the handle, but we will be offering two sizes to fit most hands...
Hey Doc. I looked at the knife. I would probably prefer a scaled down version of the one under the Tanto. I do like the curve or belly that the Tanto has. As far as size, that is subjective. "Big guy" that's 6'6" and has a flat stomach could carry a bigger neck knife than 6'6" guy with a big pot belly. Once the knife hangs down low enough to hit the stomach, it would skew and print through clothing. Shortening the cord or chain would work some, but then you might have trouble fitting it over your fat head without untying the cord or unclasping the chain. Handle thickness as well as the entire sheathed package thickness would also be issues.
Hey I especially like that folder near the bottom of your page! It looks like a much prettier version of (if I remember correctly) the Boguszewki Spike. Or maybe it was a different knife. Oh well, it's very nice, regardless of what it reminds me of. As for the PUP, that's a cool knife, too.
I just showed the Little Pup knife to my son and daughter. They both said, "Look, a Blue's Clues knife!" I guess I'll have to buy them each one now. For the uninitiated - http://www.nickjr.com/bluesclues/home.html
Welcome Running Dog! Neat discussions. Meet the 4th, or Mr. Neck-knife as he is known to his friends! Sooo... a Pup, flatground in BG-42, concealex multisheath! I plan on filling the paw with a cobalt-blue dyed epoxy for S&G!
