Neco, a mini Persian that hides its fighter pedigree and doesn't look out of place, formal or casual...

NECO

/ˈne.koː/ - From Latin, meaning to Kill, Put to Death or Slay.

Neco is a small, lightweight and discreet carry option which disguises its abilities well. “The Gentleman’s EDC”, this mini Persian blade looks smart enough to carry in formal attire, and remains ever ready.

The blade is small and compact making it both easy to carry and conceal. Comfortable in both forward or reverse grip, the handle is ergonomically shaped to fit snugly in the palm. Versions with the contoured handle scales also feature a palm swell which aids in retention.

The Neco is modelled on the Persian style blade with a trailing point, or upswept tip. Deceptive in its ability, the Neco is an agile fighter that is equally at home doing basic utility tasks. This makes it easy to carry for those who are worried about possibly looking “too tactical”.

The Neco comes with the expected high quality Kydex sheath, offering a very positive retention and secure carry solution that is comfortable to wear in both OWB or IWB, and concealable both ways too. A variety of handle options are also available so you can tailor your Neco to suit you.
