Even though I've got the sheath ( and a good one at that) for my Dodo model I'm kind of getting the drift that small fixed blades are probably the way to go if you're serious about carrying a Neck Knife. Also I think a small fixed blade Hawkbill would be ideal for that type of knife carry too.dsvirsky wrote: ↑Thu Oct 17, 2019 6:48 pmPersonally, I'm a big fan of neck knives. I find them a useful addition to the folder in my pocket and even more useful when I'm pocket challenged.
That said, I consider many of the neck knives on the market to be too big and heavy to be carried in that manner and better suited to belt carry. IMHO, the best neck knives are around 5.5" (+/- 0.5") and as light as possible. For reference, I'm 5'10" so if you're significantly shorter or taller YMMV.
Most of the neck knives I own are customs, but some good production neckers are the White River Knucklehead 2, any of the Swick models (I have the 2 and the 4), and the SE ARC (smaller than my general preference but it works).

That's a great concept and one I plan on trying out. It just makes perfect sense to have a knife more available more quickly while hunting or just on any outdoor activity.
The more I think about what you've just said the more I'm liking that idea. I think I would even like a conventional Neck Knife better if it wasn't swinging freely the way I've carried one in the past ( my Spyderco Dodo as a Neck Knife).bearfacedkiller wrote: ↑Fri Oct 18, 2019 7:08 amI clip one to the shoulder strap of my backpack when hiking. Usually a BK14 or the Street Beat. I absolutely love it when hiking.
I also find it extremely practical while ice fishing. I’m so bundled up that having it around my chest is the best way to go. I often clip a Swick to the shoulder strap on my Carhartt Arctic Bibs. Works awesome.
That Helle is a Swedish made knife isn't it? And by the way how long of a blade did you have on that Helle model?
