|Neck knife or tactical love beads? You make the call.|
Each CRKT Minimalist knife ships with an injection molded sheath, neck lanyard, as well as the hardware and clip to convert the sheath to be worn on a belt. A braided fob is added to each knife that can easily be removed if that is your preference. Once removed, the fob can't be reattached so be sure you want it gone before making the cut.
I'm a long time fan of the tanto/reverse tanto blade shapes. No specific reason other than I just really like they way they look. I decided to go with the Minimalist Tanto for my purchase. It arrived in a few days and it was love at first sight. I'm not really a knife guy so I won't bore you with details on the type of steel used or how deep the gimping is. I know pointy, and I know sharp. My knife arrived very pointy and very sharp. It also looked and felt really great. So what did I do? I figured out a way to mount my brand new EDC Minimalist Tanto on my Glock 42 OWB holster.

I found a video that has Alan Folts himself describing the genesis of the Minimalist knife series along with an eloquent listing of significant features of the knives in the series. You know how I feel about them by now so why not spend a few minutes with the designer of the knives.
With street prices starting below $25 the CRKT Minimalist knives appear to deliver a very good value for your money. I'm very pleased with mine and anticipate many years of service from them. Are you looking for an EDC knife that is small'ish, thin, and light? You might want to check them out while all six blade styles are currently available.
