Minuteman Watch Company has a 3 part mission. They want to produce quality products, provide jobs for American workers, and make enough money that they can channel 25% of their net profits to Veteran’s charities. They already do a great job of this with their American-assembled watches. Now they are branching out into the world of knives.
They have partnered with Justin Gingrich of Gingrich Tactical (who designed the Combat Ready tactical pen I reviewed a while back), for a neck knife that they are calling the Adjutant. It is a 2.5″ 154CM-bladed (6″ OAL) neck knife which will be available with either tan G10 scales or Red, White, and Blue Kirinite.

They emailed me today, and I am passing along the information to you. I am definitely going to follow up with them and see if I can’t get one to test. I have been on a small fixed-blade kick lately, having just finished reviews of the Helle Mandra and KnifeArt Razorback.
The Adjutant looks to be great complement to the niche.
