    I hope this isn't a re-post, as I used the "search" option, with narrowed results, not being able to find what I'm looking for. So, with that said, I'm looking for a neck knife. I'm looking for one that extremely small, low profile, thin, and zero printing through a t-shirt. My intentions aren't for self defense, but rather back-up utility if need be. I can't afford a HAK, so preferable something around the $40.00 mark. Also, retention must be SPOT ON. The last thing I'd want would be for it to fall out of it's sheath due to a bit of "jostling". So far, the only ones that has come even close to my liking, are the Cold Steel Bird and Trout, Cold Steel Mini-Pal, and the HAK (WAY out of my price range). So, help me out here. EDCF has yet to fail me. :)

    I'd definitely recommend the Cold Steel Super Edge. Pretty small, but very sharp and good! Not very thin, though. Aside from that, look up the Ka-Bar Becker Necker. I think that's the perfect choice for you!

    The Esee Izula is also a knife that everybody seems to like using as a neck knife. It's a step up from the Ka-bar Becker Necker. But it is a little over your price range. not much tho!

    Boker Vox Gnome perhaps? It should suit your budget perfectly:

    while it's a bit on the long side I just got the HK Snody Instigator (by Benchmade) and it comes very sharp with a chisel ground wharncliff blade. I love it, the retention is GREAT even once it snaps out it will hang there because the sheath grabs the spine of the knife

    My love and bias for becker/Kabar knives is about to come out. Check out the becker necker, or its big brother the EsKabar.... I would recommend the EsKabar which is the becker necker blade and izula handle...its a win-win.

    I've got the Cold Steel Bird & Trout and would highly recommend it. It's very cleverly designed and can dangle from your small finger in-between cutting tasks.

    +1 on the Boker Gnome. Seems to be on backorder everywhere though. Bought & paid for one some 3 months ago, still waiting for it :(

    Necker

    Charles May makes makes a great S30V necker, which I carry on-duty, concealed under my load bearing vest (outta sight, outta mind), to cut seatbelts, fiberous materials or discourage gun-grabs :)

    Boker gnome. Had mine for a week or so, loving it. Every person I've pulled it out in front of has asked where to buy it. I would recommend a lanyard of some kind, though. The handle is small. I got my lanyard from lighthound.com, I was out of paracord. Heh^^
