This Snody design remains my favorite neck knife of all time. Lean and mean, wharncliff style with a chisel grind, this AUS8 steel knife allows for a secure full hand grip and easy draw. The Zytel sheath that comes with it is not perfectly fitted, but carries the Instigator securely and makes lashing it to a vest or pack easy. For a time, I had the handle wrapped in paracord, but it has been removed again for a lower profile. The knife is marketed under the Heckler & Koch line these days and is made for Benchmade in Taiwan.
