A very unique neck knife by Butch Vallotton. Push the button as you slide the knife into the sheath and the blade retracts, allowing the knife to fit snugly and securely into the sheath. Simply pull the knife and the sheath apart and the blade will deploy as it exits the sheath. Titanium fittings on the sheath protect your hand from the blade. A cool and functional neck knife. Only four of these neck knives have been made.
