so, i'm looking for a tiny neck knife. i know about hideaway - too much money, darn it. i know about the spyderco police pendant - can't find one, darn it. so the shiv works lil' loco seems the next best choice, but i am not crazy about the looks, darn it.

this will not be a sd knife, just a spare. it's gotta be small, fairly inexpensive, and thinner than a jester. prefer fixed, but folder will do. prefer ti, but decent stainless will do.

all thoughts are appreciated. and thanks for the help.

The mid-tech Bitteroot from Simonich Knives LLC might be just the thing you're looking for. They're probably just about impossible to find at the moment, but if you contact Christine Simonich (email and phone number are available on the Simonich Knives website), you can ask to buy one directly when there's another production run ($49.95 plus $5 shipping, IIRC).

I have a cool little necker from Jens Anso. Its a titanium thumb knife, makes a great little sticker but a poor cutter. Its so light I often forget Im wearing it.
You can also try the Shivworks Loco, one of my favorite mini knives and probably my most used neck knife.

There's both the Spyderco Spot and Benchmade 160. Small, and light, but might be larger than your idea of "itsy-bitsy".

look at the cold steel bird and trout. its light, small cheap and sharp. not much of a handle, but the ring makes it firm in the hand. probably not what you were thinking, but I wore it as a necker a couple of times just for fun.

From personal experience, I recommend the Bitteroot. La Griffe is a little bigger but so unobtrusive it will also work as a tiny but effective backup/utility. You might also look at the Nemesis Knives "Hellion".

I have had a few neckers in the past and still have one. I cannot get comfortable wearing one. Some other formites might be able to give you some thoughts on the subject. just my 2 sense worth

roodog, which anso do you have? i really like the idea of ti, which is partly the problem with the shiv works. the bitterroot and the hellion both seem close but not quite small enough. anybody have comments on the actual usefulness of the tad gear ti dogtag?

thanks

Take a look at Cold Steel's READY EDGE.
It's small but has a large enough handle to hang onto.
comes with a kydex sheath for blade up or down carry.

There is also the Nemesis Hellion. Made from s30v and going for about $44 to $50. Tadgear.com has it on sale now or you can get it directly from Nemesis knives. Hellion
