Cold Steel's new Double Agent® neck knives possess a significant set of advantages worth noting. Designed by Zach Whitson, with either a Karambit or Clip Point blade style, they're thin, flat, and super light (a little over 3 ounces including sheath). This makes them easy to conceal and very comfortable to wear. Their most audacious and notable feature, however, is their double ring handle design. Slip an index finger through the front ring nearest the blade and your pinky finger through the rear ring and close your fist to obtain a forward grip and vice versa for a reverse grip.
It doesn't matter how hard you cut, chop, hack, hammer or thrust with the Double Agent®. Its twin rings will always prevent your hand from sliding forward on the razor sharp edge and will likewise resist the effects of centrifugal force or the efforts of an adversary to wrest the Double Agent® from your grasp.
The Cold Steel Double Agent II Karambit Knife, designed by Zach Whitson, features a 3" Clip Point blade of AUS8A stainless steel, 2.3mm thick. The handle, 4.875" long, has Grivory scales over the stainless steel frame, a forward finger hole, a butt end finger ring, friction grooves on the blade spine and a lanyard hole. A Secure-Ex neck sheath with lashing holes and bead chain is included. Overall length: 7.875". Weight: 2.4 ounces.

The knife and sheath are light. The knife is an excellent length for daily tasks. It is sharp out of the box and is easy to sharpen using a 12%u201D ceramic sharpening rod. I carry the knife cross draw under my left shoulder. The chain that came with the knife was too short for this staple carry so a used thin 325 paracord instead. I liked the knife so much I ordered the serrated edged version.
I have one of these. Absolutely love it. Works well in both grips. Easy extraction and solid lock to prevent accidental deployment and big enough to be useful.
WOW! This is a nice piece of steel. It is not high carbon steel but for $30 what do you expect? About equivalent to 440 grade, but raw steel is made in Japan instead of US. Easy to sharpen but dulls quicker than a high carbon steel. Will not rust and there is the trade off with a high carbon steel. Decent all around steel for the price. The blade came very sharp. Typical with Cold Steel knives. I have a medium size hand and it fits well. The blade is on the thin side, fits well against my chest, and is easy to pull out with a little practice. NOTE: The Secure Ex sheath is for right handers but can be used by left handers by using thumb instead of index finger to operate release button. Knife is very secure in sheath and will not fall out until released. While the blade is on the thinner side it is a very solid knife, Cannot tell I am wearing it. Even with a thin t-Shirt, knife cannot be seen from outside. I love the 2 finger holes. Adds some brass knuckle action along with the flesh shredding properties of this blade. Also has a hard knuckle sticking out of the bottom of handle to act as a kubaton. This knife can do damage!
This is hands down one of the greatest knives I've ever owned. It's easy to conceal and carry around and it's got a great edge to it.
This knife is very sharp. I just ordered a second one for my friend from this website, which was the cheapest I could find. Anyways the handle has great ergonomics and it is very hard to drop the knife. The knife is very, very light and hard to see if tucked under the shirt. I use it as a go to knife while hunting on the lease. It is perfect for small jobs. I honestly feel this is a great utility knife instead of a protection knife. The Karambit style, which I also have, is an awesome blade for protection. Yet, it is not an ideal utility knife at all.
I love this knife! iT fits my hand perfectly. It is lightweight and I can wear it around my neck for a long time without it bothering me. It is a good size and very sharp right out of the box.
The Cold Steel Double Agent II Knife exceeded my expectations. I've never been able to wear a neck knife, either because I was unsure of the sheath holding it or the knife was too thick and too visible. This knife in the sheath is pretty much invisible. It is very thin and does not telegraph even with a T-shirt. I wear it 24/7 and have no problems. The sheath holds and releases well. The finger holes are large and well sized. I love this knife!
