Cold Steel’s new generation of Mini Tac Neck Knives are astonishingly light at 3 ounces each. Because they’re so lightweight, they can be comfortably worn practically 24 hours a day. With their sturdy bead chain lanyards and their rugged Secure Ex® sheaths (specially designed to snugly retain the knife while allowing a speedy draw stroke), they can be worn outside clothing and perform as a handy utility or rescue knife. They can also be carried more discreetly under a shirt or blouse, or inside a coat. They can even be used for camping or hiking as they can easily be tied or taped anywhere from a backpack to a fanny pack. Their versatility is virtually endless. Fashioned from AUS 8A stainless steel and reflecting state of the art heat treatment they are honed to a razor edge and exhibit incredible toughness for such a small knife, due in part to their full tang construction. Tough, rough, and ready for anything, they come equipped with thin high quality black G-10 handle scales. This feature allows them to lie flat and close against the body and provide an aggressive gripping surface. Also when these scales are combined with integral sub hilt they give the fingers of the hand incredible purchase and allow a remarkably secure grip that resists rolling or twisting.

Offers a super wide blade with a long shallow "V" cross section that’s ideal for cutting and shearing or piercing. It makes a great all around field knife too and will prove equally useful outdoors at camp or at home in the kitchen.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
its a solid kife
it is a very good skinning knife. I skinned a deer with it and it worked extremely well. you can get a good edge on it but it doesn't hold an edge very well. putting in and out of the sheath dulls the blade pretty quickly. it would be nice if it came with a belt clip. I put leather laces through the holes in the sheath so I can carry it horizontally on my belt. it is very handy like that.

What a Knife!
Been a CS fan for years so quality of this knife wasn't a question. Funny thing about me buying this blade is that I had never even considered owning it! I have been trying to replace the 5" clip point voyager that I lost 2 years ago. I'm tough on a knife and had not found anything up to the task. I saw this while out shopping with my wife and she talked me into it. I've only had it for 2 days but have added belt loops to the sheath and have been carrying it almost un-noticed since. Today I used it to skin and process a friends deer and like the above review noticed the edge tended to roll but was easily stropped. Great handle but I have added a leather fob to extend the grip. I may never use a folder for EDC again.

exellent EDC
Got this to use as and EDC knife, to compliment my Leatherman wave. Well the blade is as big as I expected, and the flat grind and distal taper make it exceptionally sharp and light. the kydex sheath and small grip make it so you have to develop a technique to draw the knife effectively. although the grip is small the G10 is very grippy, wet or dry. I have not yet used the knife for hard work, but I have discovered the AUS8a steel has a tendency toward rolling on the edge, which will make the knife "sharp" on one side and "not" on the other, so hone it back after use just to be safe, strop it an a steel or very fine stone. I like it overall and will probably get the other two or another of this model.
