The neck knife


The neck knife called "S-NECK®" has a story as we like them at TB-OUTDOOR. In 2018, the Air-Raid organizers contacted TB-OUTDOOR to ask us if we would be interested in creating a specific knife given to all participants of the 2019 edition of AIR RAID taking place at the Air Base 942 Lyon Mont Verdun. A great opportunity for our company to highlight its ability to develop quality products for our armed forces! We also loved the AIR RAID approach and its primary goal while actively participating in the 20th anniversary of this great adventure.

What is AIRRAID?

The objective of this exercise is to validate the military achievements of the Air Force personnel but also to develop the links between the active personnel and the members of the military reserve, to do this the regulations require that each team be composed of at least two reservists and at least one active duty personnel. For the participating teams, this is not a health ballad. For 2 sleepless days, the teams compete through around sixty workshops and a night raid around the base. Combat rescue and first aid are also on the menu for this “sports” weekend. For this anniversary edition, 42 teams (37 French, 2 German, 1 Belgian, 1 Canadian and 1 Swiss) have launched an assault of a 36-hour raid made up of 58 events. First aid, aeronautical history, throwing grenades, EOD, FRG2 shooting, game hunting, aquatic course, night walk, bear cage, escape course, implementation of transmissions... so many workshops in various disciplines calling on all the skills and all the knowledge of the competitors in addition to highlighting the values ​​of all aviators: agility, precision, mutual aid, audacity and passion.


The S-NECK® knife

S-NECK® is pronounced SNAKE, like serpent in English. This knife is tattooed on the back and can be used perfectly as is with its Kydex sheath molded to the shape of the blade. To attach the holster around the neck, you have 2 meters of Paracord available on delivery, which can be cut to the desired length. This Paracord can also be used to braid the handle to make it more comfortable to use. The total length of Paracord supplied is 2 meters. This is enough to braid the handle (about 1.15m) and to go around the neck with the remaining length (85cm).


Steel and sharpness of the blade

The knife was made from high quality stainless steel, so it is not very sensitive to corrosion. The heat treatment gives it great hardness and therefore great rigidity. The “Tanto” type edge originally used on ancestral Japanese swords for its optimal penetration power also contributes to this rigidity. We wanted this choker to have a “face”… we are very happy with the result.



1. Tanto-shaped blade (strong penetration)
2. Finger loop
3. Hole for wrist strap or paracord
4. Ergonomic grip / for firelighter use (not supplied)
