The Amare Knives A-Max is a compact fixed knife, designed by Uli Hennicke. He designed the A-Max as an every day carry neck knife. You carry this knife in its kydex sheath around your neck with the neck cord. As such you always have it close.
The great thing about a fixed knife for EDC is that it is often a lot stronger than a pocket knife. After all, it doesn't contain a locking mechanism that might fail. Especially with a blade thickness of 4.5 mm the A-Max is nice and strong.
The blade is made from Sandvik 14C28N steel. This is a Swedish type of steel that retains its sharpness well and is also easy to sharpen. 14C28N is also relatively tough. As such it can handle its own.
The Amare Knives A-Max comes in a sleek kydex sheath. It comes with a neck cord, even though you can, of course, also attach a belt clip. (not included).
