So, to all you FB fans, please give me an opinion; is a neck knife like this considered a "traditional"?? Since I'm mostly a Folder guy, my experience with these is minimal at best!! View attachment 1641197
If not, I will delete it!! Your opinions are gratefully received!!
What say you???
I'd say that's traditional! love that blade shape... like a wharncliffe had a baby with a spear point.

These are two recent acquisitions- a Mora Classic #2 and a Järvenpää Utility Knife, and I must say… I’m really loving the heritage aspect. Simple steel, straightforward design, combined cost less than $100, and best of all; they work. Used them to make a spoon just to test them out. One of these lucky buggers is going camping with me in two weeks.

Definitely traditional! Reminds me of a modernish version of some of the forged neck knives/patch knives popular in the 19th century.

Didn't the Inuit use neck knives? I have a number of knives, which were sold as neck knives, but I pocket or belt carry them. I might neck carry this Condor Otzi one day ;) :thumbsup:
