Or is it the BRO now?

I have alot of knives, but this is the first neck knife I have ever tried out. What a kick ass little blade! Ryan was gracious enough to send one my way to test out, and I am still in awe! Thank you! I have been using it everyday since. I for one absolutely LOVE the clip point. I honestly think it would make the better all around EDC blade than the drop point (and I do love drop point blades). I was actually one of the few to vote for it in the poll. I find it to be a very useful little neck knife that is large enough to easily take care of my everyday tasks, and would also allow for a decent self defense blade. I think it is going to also do very well as a skinner. I am an avid hunter, and cannot wait to try it out on some game. So far it has only been used to open some boxes and a little bit of food prep, but this is a great all around blade design. Very stout in a little package. The Buy Brown kydex is absolutely top notch too. I have to admit two things though. One, in my environment (Pacific Northwest) I would prefer a stainless steel rather than a high carbon steel for ease of maintenance. And the second thing is the handle could be just a skosh bigger for me. But that said I have rather large paws. So I am sure it would fit the majority just fine. Other than that, I love everything about this blade and I am very grateful to Ryan for sending it to me. Lorien knows how to design one hell of a cool little knife. I've been meaning to ask, Ryan...is the sheath tek lok compatible?

cool beans!

This knife was designed with thicker stock in mind, which would fill the hand a little more, a deep hollow grind and M390 or analog of that. The design is oriented to be a defensive tool, with women as the target market.Thanks for the nod, and I'm glad you dig it!

M390 would be a great steel. Or cpm s30v. I would think anything that holds an edge well and is corrosion resistant since this blade will spend alot of time next to the body. I would not want an oiled blade next to my good clothes.

I think that is great that it was designed as a defensive tool for women. Maybe I will let my wife give it a try!
