Due to such a high demand for the Genesis, and wanting everyone to be able to afford a low profile, light weight, neck knife with excellent cutting performance. I am now producing the Genesis II.

The Genesis II is built with Bohler N690 stainless steel, a steel that is favored for use on top quality surgical instruments.

It is finished with with a stone wash finish and has a hardness of 61 HRC, making a tough knife that can hold an edge for a long time.

Wear your Genesis II knife in its Kydex Neck Knife Sheath with Breakaway Neck Paracord Lanyard and you will always have a sharp knife when you need it.

“I’ve been on trail for over a month now and so far I really love it. It’s comforting having easy access to self-protection while backpacking and hitchhiking. More importantly, I don’t have to search for my knife in my pack when I’m ready to cut summer sausage for lunch. My knife with the sheath and paracord is about 2.4 ounces. Also, it’s seriously sharp.”

“If you would have asked me a week ago, two days ago, before I received it, if I would have ever considered wearing or using a neck knife I would have thought you were insane, I thought that they were gimpy, I thought that they were silly, I thought it was something I had absolutely no interest in…
What I found is that I really like it. Many reasons. It is so light and so thin that I didn’t know it was there until I needed it. It really shined working on the treehouse because I can’t get access to my pockets because I got a toolbelt on, got a big winter coat, it is really cold out. . .well use the neck knife… It was always there when I couldn’t get at my other knife. It’s absolutely beautiful… I’m a fan, I really like it. The way it fits my hand. Absolutely a near perfect blade shape.”

The Genesis, Gen II

When I first began making custom knives several years ago I became passionate about high-quality steel and beyond razor sharp knife edges. I have fiercely protected my integrity at every turn. Designing a unique knife that is functional and beautiful is my goal.

Many knife makers fall into the trap of minimizing cost and maximizing profit. As a result they sacrifice the quality, integrity, and creativity of their knives. They look for inferior steel, and cheaper manufacturers, it is expensive to create a new blade design and so many knife makers settle for the status quo. Many of the knife makers who are big name brands have started to sell their name more than selling their knives.

Being a knife maker requires minute attention to detail. It has taken me years to master the art of blade crafting. Observing the grain of the steel, learning how much heat from grinding will ruin the heat temper, searching far and wide for handle material of beauty and rarity to match the hard work I put into my knives, and obsessing over the finishing polish, are all skills I pour into every blade I produce.

I consistently sell out of my custom knives before I ever get a picture of them up on my website. I have had several runs of knives that have never seen the light of a backlit screen. My reputation for quality, integrity, and creativity ensure that I am pretty much always out of knives to sell. 

That’s why I decided to make the high quality neck knife Genesis II.

  • Make a knife that I could make available to everyone who wants one. 
  • Allow everyone to experience the quality of my knives without paying the custom knife price. 
  • Let people get to know my integrity through my business practices. 
  • Permit everyone to see how function and beauty can go so well together.
  • And hopefully spread an appreciation for sharp knives. Very sharp knives!

The Genesis II features:

  • Steel: Bohler N690
  • Hardness: 61 HRC
  • AOL: 6.625
  • Cutting Edge: 2.625
  • Stonewashed Finish
  • Kydex Neck Knife Sheath
  • Breakaway Neck Paracord Lanyard

Read two of the highest compliments I have received, 

It has since become one of my favorite, favorite, knives so many reasons. The attention to detail. The fact that it was handmade. So well finished. Little things. Beautiful wood. It is just perfect. Everything about it is just gorgeous. He doesn’t always follow traditional knife making or traditional designs. Some people just know how to do things right, and Patrick from MT Knives is one of those guys. This is something that is really a treasure to me.


What’s really cool though, is that he uses the same steel as his custom [knives], and puts the same edge on [Genesis II] as his custom. The price is nowhere near the custom price however you’re still getting that same experience for what you would get with one of his [custom] knives.

    When I first heard of, \”neck knives,\” I have to admit that I thought they were kind of a ridiculous novelty. However, after wearing the Genesis II for over two years now and using it everyday, I now know better.

    This knife gets more use than my Benchmade folder. I carry both of these knives everyday and frankly, the neck knife is easier to draw and sheath. Upon receiving the Genesis II, I was totally blown away by how sharp the edge is. I could cut the hair on my arm, without the knife touching my skin. Your read that right. By moving the knife edge through the hair on my arm, without scraping it on my skin like you would to shave, it would cut hair.

    After wearing this knife for two years I have made two modifications to the sheath. Not being a fan of the \”safety\” break aways on lanyards I made my own from 550 cord. You simply loop the ends through the outside top holes of the kydex sheath and tie a knot on each end; letting the knots stick out on the side of the sheath that is away from your skin.

    The second modification I made was to remove the two rivets on the draw end or open end of the sheath and replace them with two stainless steel screws and nylock nuts. This allows you to be able to adjust the draw of the knife as tight or loose as you like it. Again, the screw heads face towards your skin and the nuts face away from your skin.

    After two years of daily carry and abuse, I am happy to report that this sturdy little neck knife has held up to everything I have done with it.

    This is my favorite knife.

    I got this knife because I do a lot of solo hiking. I\’ve looked into other defense methods but felt they were too heavy and awkward to carry. I love having self defense on my person at the ready, not stowed and sitting useless in my bag. The design is sleek, beautiful, and lightweight, and perfectly meets my needs.

    The first time I used it I was hiking with a co-worker in the night, trying to catch a mountaintop sunrise. A few hours into our hike we noticed a huge pair of golden eyes in the bushes in front of us, awfully close to the ground and un-moving; a wildcat. We yelled, we raised our trekking poles into the air and banged them together, but nothing worked. We reached an \”oh sh*t\” moment after we did everything you\’re supposed to do–and it still wasn\’t running away. We prepared for the worst. My partner fumbled around in the dark to find his knife, while mine was ready in seconds. I raised my Genesis II with panache and raw valor, yelling like a mad warrior. The threatening blade flashed in the light of our headlamps and the cat finally vanished.
    I am fully convinced it was definitely the sight of the knife that saved us that night. 😉 Anyway, I was incredibly thankful to have this knife so close, especially walking the four miles back down to our vehicle in the dark. I\’ve also used it walking around town alone at night… With how light and easy to conceal it is, (and the incredible sharpness) this knife is a woman\’s best friend, and it is worth every single penny.
