No, I don't work for CRKT, and I certainly don't get their knives free. Although if any CRKT personnel happen by, I would certainly be willing to volunteer to run tests and post reviews for them. For now, I just have a weakness for some of their designs, and I have found them to be good carry tools.
When they say "Minimalist" they are not kidding.
The blade comes in multiple configurations, including a clip-point called a "Bowie" which is really stretching the term. I chose this one because I was looking for a utility knife rather than a defensive blade. In a desperate situation it would function as a slashing edge.
There are three ways that I carry the Minimalist. First, of course, is with the cord looped over my head. This is a nice, handy carry when cleaning vegetables, cutting string to tie up tomatoes and similar applications. I'll be staying in a hotel for a few days in the near future, and the Folts will be worn as a neck knife most of the time, including in bed. I will be careful not to annoy my wife in certain situations.
The knife also comes with a belt clip that can be attached to the sheath with a couple of Allen screws. The arrangement can be varied depending on the user's handedness and gear setup. So you could hang it upside down off a Molle strap or whatever. On a belt out in the field, the Minimalist just disappears. It is a good choice for reducing weight and bulk when backpacking, hiking, hunting or working outside.
The third options is to simply drop the sheathed Minimalist into a front pants pocket or a pocket on cargo pants. Even in dress pants, especially without the neck cord, the Folts carries discreetly.
I have no complaints about the blade steel, and I really like the flat grind. The Micarta grip is attractive and well-designed. I am surprised at how much pressure I can get on the blade which has a relative thick and heavily grooved spine. By the way, the little lanyard is good for more than decoration or pulling the knife out of your pocket. I drop it between my pinkie and ring finger to make my grip on the knife more secure.
I have had the Minimalist for a while now. It is relatively easy to sharpen, maintains the edge well, and functions as designed. I think I paid around $20 for it, and I would say that it was a worthy investment.
