Boker Plus Little Dvalin Fixed Blade EDC Knife

Not really meant to be a neck knife but that’s what I’m using it for.  Comes with a metal belt clip you can put on the Kydex sheath for belt carry but it’s staying in the box.  Chunky (about 1/4” thick) little thing and made out of D2.  You can probably punch through a car door with this little blade.  Sheath is real Kydex and the knife is secure enough to safely hang upside down while hiking and general moving around.  Might be a little heavier for neck carry than some would like but I have some parachord like stuff that is soft and has just a hair of stretch to it and it was really comfortable to wear for a full day of walking around.

I have no doubt I can gut and quarter a deer with this knife and baton my way through bones and joints if needed.  Shaving sharp out of the box which is tough for small THICK blades.   Only $60 on Amazon Prime.

    Looks the part, hopefully it performs for you.

    I think it will work well.  Again, might be a bit big for some at about 6” but handy as all get out and allows me to tuck in my shirt and go into places where a gun is verboten still carrying a concealed SD tool.

    Looks like a useful knife. At just under a pound I wonder it it will be cumbersome hanging around your neck after a while. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts after you carry it a bit.

    When I first got it I threaded some regular 550 Parachord and in about 60 seconds decided it would not do.  I have this other stuff, same diameter as parachord but it has a little stretch (we’re talking a few tenths of an inch) and the weave of the cover is softer.   It’s a chord that many companies use to make those ID hangers that go around your neck at trade shows.  Not a true bungee type chord, I think that would have too much stretch AND the sheath would fly back, probably rather forcefully, to my chin after the knife releases.

    When I switched to that it was night and day.  But it will require further testing.  In the winter it’ll ride outside the shirt collar but tucked into the jacket and in that configuration you barely notice it around your neck even when walking around.  Summer is more of a concern.

    The other idea is that I might attach the chord to by belt and just do pocket carry.  That way when I draw out of the pocket I can pull the blade right out of the sheath in one motion.  Another thought is to take off the G10 scales and have the handle skeletonized and re install the scales.  Don’t know what’s under them, I have not removed them yet.

    In any case I’ll keep trying because at the end of the day it’s a VERY sturdy blade in a steel I like and a really handy/usable size so I’ll make it work one way or another.  I’m committed 👍

    I have been looking at that one, but probably for an EDC belt knife (I have come to the the conclusion that I hate things dragging across my neck.  Neck knives, shoulder holsters, etc….).

    Can you put up a pic of what the belt clip looks like?  Can it be carried ‘scout’ style?

    Yes and you can also adjust for height on belt, size of belt and angle if you want it canted.  The clip is Kydex and nicely shaped.

    Neck knives never made applicable sense to me. 
    After I carried one for awhile, I realized the stupidity.  Show & tell.

    Do you understand the absurdity?  A pocket is closer to presentation than reaching up a shirt to my solar plexus. Minus a jacket, you can’t really hide a neck knife. It’s a stupid combat hero concept.
    not saying it’s a bad knife. The carry method is ass backwards.

    I already carry a quick deploy pocket knife for SD.  I don’t like folders for most menial tasks plus I don’t want to use my SD knife for utility field work.  I will carry this while hiking as an easy access blade while having a backpack with a waist belt which makes belt carry of a knife uncomfortable.  

    As I said the only time I’d consider using this as a primary SD knife is if I have to tuck my shirt and a SD knife on a clip in my pocket is undesirable.  Other than that…nope.  And I also mentioned it might just go into my pocket because it fits in there nicely and come out quick.  

    I find neck carry comfortable and handy for a utility blade.  Sorry you don’t, that’s ok with me.  Not really sure what “dream” reference means.

    Looks like a choking hazard, pocket carrying for me only
