Atwood's Imp

The Imp is a very nice small knife by Peter Atwood, the total length of the knife is 3 1/8'' inches and it is made of 3V steel.

The knife is 5/32'' thick and has a chisel style blade. The handle, in this case, is plain steel wrapped in paracord. The end of the knife is shaped to be used as a screwdriver tip which is a very nice detail.

The steel used holds the edge in an excellent way, the shape of the blade and the knife in general is very confortable to use and very practical to cut, as a knife made from one solid piece of steel it will be completely unbreakable and very reliable for the most demanding cutting jobs. The cord handle offers a good grip and the crenelations opposite the blade help a lot and add a nice detail.

The Imp comes with a kydex sheath and beaded chain, so it is probably designed to be a neck-carry knife, if you prefer to carry it in your pocket a mini teklok belt clip is available for an extra $5.

A very good looking and serviceable knife that is probably among the best we have seen for neck carry, maybe a little bulky for some people to carry in a neckchain.

You can read more or order for $95 from Peter Atwood's website.
