If your pocket space is severely limited or you just like having some alternative carry options for a blade, a neck knife – which is a knife worn on a cord or chain around the neck – can be a very handy addition to your carry. And they are quite popular and have grown rather common for those very reasons. While this Boker Plus Hawkit is clearly not a knife, it is still intended to be carried in the same manner. That might seem a bit odd to your normal EDC enthusiast, but there are some benefits to this neck hatchet that aren’t covered by your average neck knife.
First and foremost, the obvious benefit of a hatchet over a knife is the ability to chop. Sure, this little guy isn’t going to cut down any trees any time soon, but it can still make quicker work of more heavy duty cutting tasks because it is intended to be swung like an axe instead of being used to slice the way you might with a knife. It also features, in its single-piece design, a hilt-mounted pry bar (which can be used to remove nails or double as a flathead driver in a pinch), a bottle opener, and a hex-wrench. And, with its 440C blade steel construction, this versatile multi-tool/tomahawk isn’t going to fall apart on you with repeated use. Each Boker Plus Hawkit measures up at a total length of just 3.75 inches and comes with a kydex sheath and ball chain. Right now you can get one for just $27 [Purchase]
