Tom Krein is a young custom knifemaker who has created quite a stir with his Mid Tech Dogfish neck knife. It seemed like the perfect affordable CRKT production knife, so here it is. Tom has a great sense of style, so unlike many skeletonized flat blades, the Dogfish is graceful, gives a secure grip, and also has that dogfish face at the pommel which turns out to be—a lanyard hole and bottle opener! It has a secure finger choil and friction grooves at the thumb spine and near the butt.

E.D.M. wire cut it from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, bevel grind the 2.25” modified Wharncliffe blade, give it a fine bead-blast finish and add a Razor-Sharp edge.

You also get a custom-fitted six-eyelet Kydex sheath that grips the knife securely for inverted carry with the neck chain included. It’s a useful, friendly minimal knife that’s a great value.

Decent Knife...Good for the money
The Dogfish is one of the coolest looking neck knives on the market, especially since it's factory-produced and extremely affordable. However, for those looking for a higher quality neck knife, I wouldn't get your hopes too high about this one. Some tend to slip out of the sheath after a few days/weeks, which can be fixed by using a hair dryer to heat and compress the sheath, but that can result in uneven warping if you're not careful, although it worked for me. Also, 3Cr13 is very cheap steal that can be resharpened, although it is much more difficult than better quality steels. However, for the looks and simplicity alone, it's worth adding to your collection if you have the money and are willing to fix the sheath and be extra diligent while sharpening.
