I can barely grip it

It's solid, functional and well made. It is also tiny. Little adolescent elfin bartenders might like it, but it is too small for my very average size hands. I can barely grip it. A standard key chain bottle ooener is actually easier to handle. So buy it and be comforted knowing it is well made, but only if you can grip a tiny tool effectively.


The knife itself is nicely made and seems to be adequate quality for the money.
The kydex sheath, on the other hand is of poor quality, using cheap grommets. It does NOT hold the knife securely, although that would seem to be a pretty important feature of a neck knife, made to be worn upside down.
The manufacturer of this knife, Tops Knives, should be embarrassed about this knife and sheath package. It certainly has a cool name "Bartender Defender", but is useless as a neck knife.
With a little heat, the kydex might be coerced to fit better, but who has time for that nonsense.
Oh yes, I almost forgot, they also include a whistle emblazoned with the Top Knives website information ... in case you want to hail a cab in London in 1947.

Works great for its intended purpose

Works great for its intended purpose. Sheath is great, and I love the thickness of this blade it actually exceeded my expectations. I carry this daily now, just drop it in my pocket that I put my car keys and folder in and I never notice it. I get a lot of comments about how cool that is to have little knife bottle opener, just something you don't see or think about everyday.
