    Try a search for the penny folders that Wick Ellerby used to make. For something more upscale, check the 18th c reproduction folders made by Scott Summerville. Gen Nis He Yo trading has several of Scott's knives for sale.

    Thanks. Any tips on what I should use for search terms to find similar knives?

    My earlier post gave the names of several makers try them. The CLA site often has knives offered for sale. I have seen several vendors offer "sorta correct" imports made of poor steel for as little as $10. On the other hand a historically correct knife made by a known craftsman might go for as much as $200.

    Just like anything else, don't be stupid with it. I've carried one for years with no I'll effect. A properly made liner and sheath are vastly important. First nations individuals were not rash nor impractical people with accoutrements. I've seen far more people at events with improperly constructed belt knife sheaths than the neck knife variety.

    I made my neck knife from a sawzall blade. Use it only for cutting patches. Small, light weight, doesn't get in the way.

    I use my 3 inch Finnish pukko neck knife all the time, in the garden, in the kayak, in the woods, cleaning the sleep out of my eyes, and even when cutting patches. I’m glad someone somewhere invented it. What a useful place to carry a small knife.

    Au contraire ...as it is well documented that the 18th century French, and not just those who were courier de bois, e.g., milicien, were renown for wearing 3 knives - one in their leg ties, a larger belt knife and a neck knife.
