    I've got one and consider the Hartsook a great value in a neck knife. I prefer smaller blades for neck carry, and it S30V the value of the Hartsook is hard to beat.

    If you are interested in small, economical neckers, you might also take a look at the Ka-Bar TDI LKD (Last Ditch Knife). With a bit of searching you can sometimes find them for less than $15US. Its a really handly little warncliffe necker and one of my favorites for that type of carry.

    iono about that... the hartsook is a pretty neat slither of s30v
    but the thing is tiny!!! the s30v doesnt make up for it being the length of my index finger and about as thick as a credit card.

    you can buy a bk13 remora or buck packlite for about the same price and its far more usable :)

    I have carried mine while on duty for about 4 years. PERFECT for what it is. I use it a lot.

    It depends on what you are looking for, really. For open carry, a larger necker like the Remora (or ESEE Izula or BRKT Bravo Necker if you are willing to spend a bit more) can be nice choices. For me, when I do carry a necker, I more usually carry a it under my shirt during day to day activities and the smaller size of the Hartsook or LDK are much more concealable. The smaller knives also tend to be more comfortable to "wear" for extended periods of time.

    Sure, its not as useful for some tasks as a longer blade, but its just fine for opening packages, cutting cord, and lots of other EDC uses I put my knife to. ;)
