What Is a Neck Knife?
A neck knife is designed to hand around the neck on a cord for easy reach. The cords may vary from Para cords to a ball chain, like those used for military dog tags.
Neck knives can be carried two different ways. Handle up is known as the “mountain man style,” and is a little more traditional. Handle down uses a tightly fitting sheath to hold it in place. Sometimes a looser sheath with magnets is used, but if the magnets fail then the knife may be lost.
What Is Kydex?
Kydex is a thermoforming plastic, meaning that when it’s heated, it is easy to bend and manipulate. Using it creates a durable, lightweight sheath that fits snugly onto the blade.
Since many neck knives are carried handle down, a tight sheath is preferred to prevent losing the knife.
Uses of a Neck Knife
A neck knife with Kydex sheath is designed to be quick and easy to draw, perfect for camping and fishing. This is especially useful if you’re survival camping or part of a group like Search and Rescue when you need to be prepared for anything.
A neck knife such as the Hawkeye Neck Knife is ideal for campers, hikers, and travelers who may be doing multi-night camping. It’s also perfect for preppers and those who want to be ready to leave at a moment’s notice.
If you need a knife to be ready to hand at any time, Off Grid Knives has you covered.
