CR2356: 2356 Sweet K.I.S.S.
Goes around your neck so you can go anywhere with it.

The Sweet K.I.S.S. is designed by the master of minimalism, Ed Halligan. This neck knife maintains a low profile and rides light around the neck, yet it's big enough to perform when you need it. The small fixed blade knife has a modified tanto blade with a black oxide finish that is discreet and unassuming. The tough, glass filled nylon handle scales are textured for exceptional grip and they're removable with a Torx screwdriver. A pressed leather lanyard adds a subtle accent to the butt of the blade and adds real estate when drawing the knife quickly.

The Sweet K.I.S.S. comes with a black polypropylene sheath that is lightweight and tensioned to hold the knife securely in place. The sheath includes a lanyard that is optimal for tip-up neck carry; it has a quick release fob to adjust the knife position on the neck and to avoid choking accidents with the lanyard.

The Sweet K.I.S.S. is an EDC fixed blade neck knife that you'll forget you're carrying until you need it in a flash.

Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.

8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Sweet KISS
Sweet little knife. Sharp as the dickens too. Bit large for a neck knife BUT then that means it has a bit longer blade which is more useful for some things. I'll be purchasing another for a gift. I carry it as a backup to my firearm and have other knives for typical box cutting/letter opening. Seems a bit more of a slasher than a stabber since there is no finger guard but the blade is more than capable for stabbing duty.

Cons: None
What a neck knife SHOULD be
Very happy with this purchase! - I have had many other neck knives that simply didnt function that well - this CRKT model is light, slim, and the sheath fits perfectly. No more piddly little blades - this one is the perfect size - long, but slim with plenty of usable edge.

Cons: Handle Material
Well executed knife with one flagrant flaw
This IS a sweet knife, nicely balanced, good long cutting edge, mine came sharp, Size is good, sheath is fine even inverted. The handle, however, is much too slippery, especially considering the slender size of the knife. This knife could benefit greatly from a Kraton-type rubberized handle. It is, after all, a discreet neck knife, possibly for use as last ditch self defense. Having it swing out of your grip under duress would not be a day brightener. Other that, a good value and quality product.
