    ^I use it for my Sunwayman V20A.
    Edit: The fob attached to the lanyard is a TEC Acessories Glow Fob. Awesome thing!

    Here is my latest project, made the neck lanyard before i purchased the knife but had plenty of the coyote brown paracord to wrap the handle and then add a little led light with matching fob.

    Also added the cord toggle to adjust how high i can wear the knife around my neck.

    RiotSnake, while I don't generally condone the purchasing of blatant clones, I purchased a copy of the MK5 from a place called Tiny Deal for less than $5 because I sort of like the concept, but could not justify the $20 price tag for the real deal; I've had less than stellar real CRKT knives in my collection (long story). Anyway, they don't seem to have it anymore, but I found another at DealExtreme, again, less than $5 including the shipping.

    Buying anything from them is a bit of a lottery, but...

    Meritline and Manafont carry them too. I almost purchased one and have been eyeing it for a while since I do like the looks of the mk5, but really couldn't justify $20 for something I figured I wouldn't use too often, if at all.

    How did the clone hold up?? Do they come with tins too? :)

    No tins, Moosh. But I know you are the queen of cool tins so I'm sure you could find a replacement. It was "OK" sharp when I got it and I practiced my limited sharpening skills to get it "OK" sharp. I've used it every so often and it is holding up fine. Well, better than fine considering what I paid for it. On the bright side, it isn't rusting like some of my real NIB CRKTs that are stored properly, btw.

    If I was building a hardcore survival tin around that model of knife, I might spring for the real deal. For someone who just wants to try it out on the cheap or just can't justify the money for the genuine article, I think you could do a lot worse for $5.

    I can tell you for sure that if any of you have young kids, they will really be drawn to that little knife. There are a lot of what I consider really neat knives at the Cone compound, but my son's always linger over the fake MK5 when we look through the collection. My older son especially is always jonesing to carry it. Maybe Santa will bring him a real one in black. MAYBE!
