The CRKT Minimalist Neck Knife w/ Tanto Blade is a very small and lightweight knife which gives surprising comfort and control, thanks to the unusual geometry of the full-tang blade, aided by three finger choils, hand-contoured green/black resin impregnated fiber scales, and a braided fob. The CRKT Minimalist Tanto Knife has a 2.125" Tanto blade shape which is very strong because of the strong central spine of metal which extends nearly to the tip. The Tanto Minimalist has a straight Razor-Sharp front edge, which allows push cutting, and a concave main edge which feeds material into the edge for fast cutting. The Columbia River Tanto Minimalist Knife comes with a custom-fitted glass filled nylon sheath and neck paracord for inverted carry as a neck knife. Because the knife and sheath weigh only 1.6 ounces together, it is a personal carry you will barely notice. True to its name, the CRKT Minimalist Knife is a minimal fixed blade knife, but it is also the most useful for its size on the market today. And this CRKT Knife is certainly a great value.
