DescriptionMEYMJDPVBBHB: Dirk Pinkerton Variable Brian's Broadhead Compact Neck Knife, Royal BlueMeyerco
The Variable series began as a back up neck knife for a friend who was a Police Officer. He wanted a small lightweight neck knife that was ambidextrous. The idea being that he could access the knife with his strong or off side hand. What makes Variable special? The handle's ability to permit practically any grip, yet still be very compact. Two features make this possible, the finger hole and the neutral handle. The finger hole is a great idea that has been around for a while and it permits a shorter, more compact handle without sacrificing a secure grip. Next, there is the neutral handle. With a short handle oriented on the center axis of the knife, you now have the ability to grip the knife in almost any grip. It's comfortable in a standard grip, reverse grip edge out, reverse grip edge in, standard grip edge up, as a push dagger or even a thumb dagger style grip. I haven't found a usable grip that doesn't work. Carry options for this knife are just as diverse, neck knife, ISB, belt sheath or a pocket paddle. Combine all the carry options with the multiple ways to grip the knife and you have the Variable.
