OPMT/Neck Knife

One of the new OPMT makers, TT PockeTTools has released (and sold out) of his very first true edged tool (many of his designs have a "snag edge" some capable of piercing tape and paper but not your hand).  It looks really great.  Here is the tool:


I have no affliation with this gentleman, but that is a pretty sweet looking OPMT/neck knife.  Even the sheath is bad ass with the contrast bolts popping against the orange kydex.  The cord lanyard covers up the v-notch pry bar at the end opposite the blade.  The steel itself is a favorite of knife knuts, S30V in 5/32" thick stock.  All of this is really great, but what about the price?

Get ready...

Brace yourself...

$36 without the sheath, $41 with.  Yowza.  That looks to be a good deal.

I am in line for a review sample of the TT Chopper, so I will let you know what the quality is like once I get this guy's brother in my grubby mitts.

  1. $41 with the sheath? Wow that is a great deal! Needless to say I will be very curious to get your thoughts on this one - very cool!

  2. Hi Dude,

    Neck knives are most frequently worn around the neck, but may be suspended from under the arm as well. They are sometimes worn under one's shirt for concealment, although this makes a quick draw nearly impossible and even simple retrieval for utility purposes awkward. Thanks a lot......

  3. Given the few feasible attachment points for a split ring or other keyring device, the presence of a sheath, the passthrough bolts, and the size of the knife I assumed that it could be used as a neck knife.

  4. The maker has contacted me and cleared up the confusion:

    "Thanks for the post on the TT-Pocket-Edge...By the way, I read the comments and it looked like there was some sort of question on it being a neck knife or not. The sheath can be used for a neck knife (with paracord or ballchain), attaching to a keychain, attaching to a belt clip or just carrying in your pocket. So it can be used as any sort of knife...neck, keychain, pocket, cabinet drawer or workbench."

    Tony,

    These are pretty sweet--one of the coolest I have seen. However, I don't really have a need for a OPMT, but I want one of these anyway!

  6. I couldn't get these darn things out of my head. Despite the fact that I don't need it, I just submitted an order for the Chopper. Not sure how long it will take to get, but it was $26 shipped--what a deal! I am looking forward to your detailed review of it. Do you have a date on when you will receive yours? If it is going to be awhile and I get mine well before you are going to get yours (I am assuming your wait time might be awhile if it is a freebie for review) then maybe we can work something out with shipping mine to you for review (if you promise to send it back to me!)

  7. MMAR thanks for the offer, but I have mine and the review will be released sometime this weekend. I really, really like it.

  8. Tony... I submitted my order with full payment yesterday to TTPocketTools--I was expecting some kind of confirmation, but did not receive anything. I emailed him this afternoon and still have not heard back. I realize its only been a short time, but should this be a cause for concerns? (I realize you don't really have anything to do with him, but you have experience with him.). Thanks!

  9. MMAR: For what its worth, I did not receive a confirmation email when I got the review sample. I will forward your question along.

  10. Just got an email from Todd stating that the order has been shipped! He seems like a solid guy--I am excited to get my hands on the Chopper and I am looking forward to your review.

  11. This is an awesome knife. It reminds me of some of my kershaw knives.

  12. This knife looks stylish and elegant. I would love to include this kind of knife in my collection along with my other knives such as crook knife and buck knife.

  13. So how does this compares to the Boker Toucan tool knife?
