    I had a TOPS ALRT on order, but my supplier informed me that it would take more than a month to get in. I'm stuck now, I wanted one of these, mainly because it doesn't look like a knife, more like a tool, and it was cheap

    So now I've been searching around on this forum whenever I could today looking at neckers and kiradashi's and mini tools, fred perrin, ben caradoso, elsons, HAK, warren thomas, blindhorse, all fantastic etc, but they all look like they could do lots of damage, and are more knives than tools. Atwood and JDR are the closest to what I would be after, but I spotted the swiss bianco key.

    I love the functionality of the swissbianco key; blade, bottle opener, scraper/pryer. It doesn't look lethal, and it gets the job done.

    Where do I get my hands on one of these or something very much like it?

    Suggestions please. TIA.

    hmm 22 looks, and no replies. I'm watching the tumbleweeds go past. I'm hoping some of the international based experts can shed some light on key knife/tools seeing Australia has a very limited knife market, and I'm not sure where to go. the swiss bianco website looks like it's been abandoned?

    Cutlerylover had a video about some "cheap" Kiradashi's a guy makes that you can get on ebay... let me see if I can find the link.

    Ecosknives Kiridashi

    Here is their website.

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for, and I have no idea about international shipping.

    Interesting. Like everyone else here, I'm sure that I'm finding my wallet and all the new things on here at conflicting ends.

    When I mentioned cheap I'm not so worried about something in the $50 to $150. You have to wear bigger costs here in OZ to get something decent. My belief is "you get what you pay for", so if I need to pay a little more, I don't mind.

    Thanks for the link.

    I have two other suggestions, but they are more knife-looking:
    -Spyderco Swick (I think it's only available from spyderco.com, and comes without a sheath)
    -CRKT Dogfish

    Also maybe one of the CLB Boker fixed blades, if they strike your fancy.

    I can recommend the Buck Kaala. It is truly one of my favorite neckers. I cordwrapped it and made my own kydex sheath for it, but I felt the knife was worth the effort.

    I really like the looks and price of the Blind Horse Knives "Tiger Knapp". I'm still waiting on a Jim Burke (Randall King) "Snitch" so I'm thinking about the "Tiger Knapp". The Buck KAALA sounds good to but is about double the price.

    I'd throw in Buck Hartsook too. I think they're only around $20, and they're S30V.

    well after much deliberation I went for a Ewotah Edge & Tool, Bottle opener blade which is a multitool rather than a true necker. Thanks to all for the reccomendations :hug: found some awesome stuff like the Buck hartsook, which will be my tiny tax treat for June. :roof:

    Love my Les Vorhees necker, but my fave lil' necker is the Simonich Mid-tech Bitteroot. Super small, but still a useful knife, no toy.

    +1 on the Bitteroot, unfortunately they are a little hard to find. I love mine.

    I have a Blind Horse Knives Tiger Knapp (the larger one) on the way and I'm looking forward to having it and doing the neck carry thing. If it's a little too long I'll get the short one too.
