So you want a lightweight and handy fixed blade that can be carried in any position? Consider the Renner Neckolas from CRKT. A lightweight, serrated knife that deploys with one hand!Blunt safety tip and Triple-Point serrations that swiftly slice through rope and webbing. An index finger hole gives unparalleled grip and control.The full-tang stainless steel blade is sandwiched between Micarta(TM) scales; the skeletonized construction makes it super lightweight. The Micarta sheath is amazing; it locks the blade securely, yet releases it cleanly when the top "lever" is depressed. Reversible stainless clip attaches to lash tab and lets right and left handers operate it smoothly. When removing the clip and reinstalling it on the other side of the sheath, we recommend applying Loctite(R) or other threadlocker to the screws to prevent loosening. Length: 5.38", 2" blade, Weight: 1.2 oz.
CRKT Renner Neckolas Rescue Kayak Knife - The Renner Neckolas from CRKT is a lightweight, serrated fixed-blade knife that deploys with one hand. The Micarta sheath is really the secret to the system. An integrated locking system which holds the Neckolas securely in place until needed, then unique flexible "pinch" release lever allows it to be drawn easily. Reversible stainless clip attaches to lash tab and lets right and left handers operate it smoothly. A full-tang stainless steel blade, is sandwiched between Micarta handles and held securely by stainless steel pins and the finger-ring insert. The serrated edge and blunt tip swiftly slice through rope and webbing. This knife can be more handy than a folder and clips to PFDs, shirts, pants or boots. Any place you can clip something, you can store the CRKT Renner Neckolas knife for quick access.
Terry Renner, custom knifemaker and owner of TR Blades in Palmetto, Florida, is becoming well-known for his high-end folders and art knives. But he has a fertile mind, and the idea for the Neckolas came while he was toying with an index-finger-ring folder design. He says, ?Rather than discarding the ?Hole Idea,? I thought of the fixed blade format, which led me to design a locking sheath which could be manipulated with one hand.?The result is the Renner Neckolas? knife/sheath system. The orange 2391 features a blunt tip and full Triple-Point? serrations for use as a whitewater and extrication knife. It will quickly cut through cord and seat belts without tip penetration.It also features full-tang premium 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blades, sandwiched between Micarta? scales and held securely by stainless steel pins and the finger-ring insert. As a result of this skeletonized high-tech construction, the knife weighs only 1.2 ounces.The Neckolas sheath is really the secret to the system. Terry says, ?I wanted a retention system that would release and capture the knife with the same motion. It occurred to me that composite materials would allow the sheath to act as its own retaining spring. The key to easy re-insertion is the thumb notch on the sheath top edge. Just insert the blade into the sheath and ?pinch.? The knife clicks into place. To release the knife and draw it, just ?pinch? the springbar extension with your thumb, which allows the blade tang notch to clear the sheath?s retaining pin momentarily.?Terry also designed a reversible removable stainless steel clip system which allows left or right hand carry. He says, ?This knife can be more handy than a folder, clipped to a T-shirt, pants or shirt pocket, or boot. Any place you can clip something, you can store the Neckolas for quick access.? Together, the sheath and clip weigh only 1.0 ounce. The included black nylon lanyard allows wear as a neck knife, as the Neckolas name suggests.For the Neckolas scales and sheath, we have chosen Micarta, often called the ?Cadillac of Plastics? because of its rigidity and excellent strength-to-weight ratio. We believe it is the first Micarta sheath ever made.
