    First of all, a huuuuuuge thank you goes out to Tony R for this little beauty. It's made with maple and carbon fiber. The amount of friction is perfect and it really does add an extra dimension of usefulness to the necker! I took some photos with a Necker-2 as well to show the size comparison. I have to be honest, the necker was never my favorite because I crave having a handle. Tony's solution is spot on and really handy. The shape of the blade prohibits it from being used in too high force activities so the lack of a "lock" really isn't an issue at all. Tony's design and craftsmanship is truly top notch as well. If you want to see Tony's awesome work in progress, give him a follow on social media! @inrangedesign . I should be 100% clear that I am in no way affiliated, just a very happy fan that thinks great work deserves equal level of praise!

    No clip, but Tony mentioned using a jean coin pocket or as I call it my "zippo pocket". It seems right at home there!

    While waiting for the 4.7's and 2.7's to finish production and the 7/7s and long-awaited 4.1s to start coming out in big batches, i thought I'd bump this thread because... well, isn't it obvious? This is awesome work. That is all. :cool:

    Hey! I recognize that. I recently got to do this one for Ricky. His was stolen (the #070 in the photos above). Someone helped him get another necker, and I thought it would be cool to make him another folder handle. It was my last set of hardware, so it was cool to get this done.

    And by the way, I would love more than anything to have a folder from S!K. That would put me over the top as far as getting excited about a new blade!!!!

    I still love my folder you made me, a true gem and something truly special! That blu died one you worked up for Ricky is crazy cool, almost like a Monet painting. Absolute functional art!
