Bought 4 on Pre-Order & Here's My Initial Impression
I purchased the KA-BAR 1119 Wrench Neck Knife for a utility knife & as a gift for friends. I intend to use mine as a utility knife to keep in my truck tool bag. I think it's a little large for an EDC neck knife, but would work. The plastic sheath has good retention with holes and a slot for multiple carry options. The forging has minor imperfections, but is typical of classic forged wrenches/tools, so I guess that's OK. I like the appearance of the knife. The blade is sharp, but the bevel is not uniform on any of the 4 that I purchased. The bevel at the tip is where they seemed to have most difficulty. If mine are representative of the lot, be prepared to spend some time improving upon the blade bevel if you want it to be correct. Maybe the initial lot were rushed and not properly finished or inspected, that's my only disappointment with the knife.
