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.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Weight, None

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: None
Just what I was looking for.
I needed a neck knife to have handy doing yard work (cutting string, screening, etc.) and this one has the right sized blade and is stout enough to withstand some heavier work if need be. My only draw back is the handle is a bit small for my hand size.
