A knife you’ll keep close to your heart. Literally. The trouble with neck knives is they can hang and get caught in machinery. That’s why Ed Van Hoy designed this everyday carry blade, which features a magnetic retention feature embedded in the knife handle and sheath. It stays out of sight and out of mind. Until you need the utility blade to get the job done. Crafted by award-winning knife maker Ed Van Hoy of Abingdon, Virginia, the Cling-on™ is yet another design that’s pushing the limits of compact cutting tools. A great all-around knife, with an ergonomic design, it was created to be one of the safest neck carry systems in the world. This revolutionary design keeps the neck knife from dangling and getting caught up in moving parts or other things in the work area. When users put their magnetized CRKT® dog tag necklace on under their shirt, the neck knife stays close to their chest for easy access and doesn’t fall forward, thanks to the magnetic retention feature in both the knife handle and sheath. The knife stays out of the way, and so too does danger. The Cling-on™ is a knife that stays out of site and out of mind. That is, until you need a blade to get the job done.
