The new version looks better in every imaginable way to me. I recently purchased a Double Agent I, might post about what it's like when it arrives.

I'm a big fan of neck knives. They're easy to conceal, easy to access, and very convenient for S/D and everyday cutting tasks.  


I used to own a Tokyo Spike. It was a nice knife, but way too large for my comfort as a neck knife. 

If I were to get another neck knife, I'd get a Mini Tac like the Kiridashi. Size is the number one concern with my neck knives, and functionality second. 

I bought a CRKT Folts Minimalist Bowie and I've been using it every day for about 6 months. It's worked out so well that I've got a SPEW in the mail. Got my girlfriend the Folts Minimalist Wharncliffe (or whatever it's called).

Sorry to be the one who brings the negative thoughts, but what can I do... thought I will be fan of neck knives and I really tried, but it just doesn't work out between us. Carrying them open looks a bit silly (except outdoors), plus they tend to fly all around as you move. Having them under clothes makes them slow to draw for SD and uneasy to re-sheath for utility. 
Had a Kiridashi and MiniTac Tanto and despite I loved the way they fit in hand, they were very bad heat-treated and had zero edge retention. Also, the sheaths are way too huge, quite cancelling the advantage of small knife. I would make a small kydex sheath if the knife was worth it, but sadly none of them was.

Your problem is that you actually need a Knecht knife. Jeez, I crack myself up

In CS knives, I chose the K4 for my neck knife.

I do like the K4, my neck knife issue is that if I havn't worn one in a while, I get a crink in my neck. I found a set up on the internet called a "poormans shoulder harness" it is basiclly 6 feet of paracord in a figure 8, with the rope ran through a leather disc w/4 holes in it. The 2 loops go over your shoulders and the knife is under your arm. It is really a lot more comfortable than you would think

Got my Double Agent I the other day. I'm stunned with the quality of this knife and what I paid for it. It's absolutely phenomenal and the only serious drawback is that getting it in and out of the sheath in a hurry will definitely take practise (especially when carrying it concealed).

If you can get it in and out of the sheath easily and quickly, it's a knife I would bet my life on. That's saying a lot, especially considering I paid less than $30 for it. Came obscenely sharp and cuts so well it's mind boggling. I'm buying a Steel Tiger because I like this so much.

I highly recommend it and I think Cold Steel did an awesome job with it.
