The Medford Thorn is a chisel ground tanto design meant for deep concealable carry. This is a neck knife that is as utilitarian as it is lethal. The simple lines make it easy to sharpen and integral tang/handle truly keep it simple. Use of a lanyard aids in the quick no-slip drawing of this knife. Always draw neck knifes in a single non-bouncing snap away from the body using the neck cord to retain the sheath. Do not attempt 2-handed slow draw of the blade or stabbing to the stabilizing hand or body may result.
