Neck/Keychain Knives by Neilson's Mountain Hollow

I enjoy doing a variety of neck knives. From the very basic to the very fancy, they are always handy and unobtrusive either on your neck, on your keychain, in your pack or pocket.... and they will always "work". If you want to have a handy tool without making a big fuss or a nice piece of "sharp art" hanging  from you neck, a nice Neck Knife can be the way to go. See anything you might like?
