    I like this neck knife blade profile, but would do handle and would grind it differently.

    How much distal taper is there on a neck knife?

    It is awesome that another great maker will be doing a neck knife, I am awaiting my first neck knife but already looking for the next. I am interested in seeing what you come up with.

    I don't carry a necker, but this one might be on my radar. I'd personally, go with "number one", but add a little bit more of a notch at the choil. They will be great, no doubt.

    I spoke to Hoss the Boss this morning, and he gave me some very good advice. I will use it in conjunction with other advice in this thread to make a prototype. It will without a bolster at first - I want to familiarize myself with the grind before I consider using premium materials (mokume, damascus, ironwood). It will probably be in AEB-L heat treated to 62-63RC and for most wear resistance. I also need to get materials and tools for making kydex sheath. So this is going to be a a long

    Thanks to all who chimed in.

    IMO, that forward finger choil is a must-have for safety, functionality and comfort on a small knife that may be used hard in an emergency.
    After owning a bob lum designed caly 3 and then my carter necker, I will never own an edc without one.

    A few questions to folks who own Carter neck knives.

    Is the diameter of the forward finger choil about the same as your index finger? Would it be better if the area was notched for a bitter friction, like you see sometimes spine on straight rasors?

    Also, how do yo like the Carter in terms of design, ergonomics, etc? Would it be better if the scales on the handle on the Carter extended further forward, almost to the plunge line? What is the thickness of the handle (with scales)?

    Slightly larger, but I have small fingers.

    Not in the choil area, but jimps on the spine where the thumb could get purchase would be welcome.

    For a small knife, it is very comfortable in the hand. I think part of this is the handle shape, which narrows at the end and fins into my palm.

    I think it would interfere with pinching the blade for fine work.



    What is the thickness of the handle (with scales)?
    Mine measures 11.65 mm at the thickest point.

    The spine measures 2.8 mm at the choil area, Don.
