What is a Neck Knife?
For our purposes, a neck knife is simply a small knife with a blade usually about 4 inches long that can be worn around your neck by way of a cord or a chain. Neck knives are singled-edged and usually hung handle up but can also be worn handle down when using a sheath. The blade portion of the knife is covered by either a form fitting leather sheath or a sheath held on by magnets. Neck knives can be used for self-defense of small cutting tasks like opening boxes.
