I know this one is a little over your specs, but save another $35 on top of what you have and get this one. You won't be disappointed. You'll be glad you spent a little extra. You gotta hold one of these in your hand to appreciate it.

Down behind enemy lines? Left to fend for yourself? These are the scenarios that inspired the LMF II. Former military man, Jeff Freeman led the charge to engineer this fearless new 10" survival knife. And we field-tested with the troops.
This knife is as adaptable as the personnel who carry it. Use it to cut through the skin of a fuselage. Or sever a seat belt. Or egress through the Plexiglas of a chopper. Plus, the LMF II does a slick job cutting firewood and building shelter.
The over-molded handle successfully limits blistering. There is complete separation between the tang and butt cap, so the knife absorbs the shocks from hammering and prevents the shocks of electricity. Smartly situated grooves and lashing holes let the LMF II convert to a spear. The low-profile sheath facilitates movement, limits noise, works for parachuting, and attaches to a belt or Molle vest. The patented, integrated sharpener means edge retention in the field.

I have two neck knives - CRKT Neck PECK and a debranded Cold Steel. The current choices from CRKT might perform well, but are butt ugly, IMO. If you can find one of their Carson designed ones, they are quite nice. The K4 from Cold Steel is VG-1 and handles well, but I don't own one (bought the other instead). Does have a 4" blade, which is on the larger side for neck knives. I know some folks have issues with Cold Steel, but I've never had any problems with mine. In your price range, too.
They retail for about 109.00 but you can buy em all day long on ebay for 75$ Its above what you were lookin for but in my mind you cant beat it. save some beer money one weekend and buy it. you wont regret it.:thumb:
