McNees Custom Knives PM Retainer
I've loved knives for as long as I can remember and have always had a creative itch. 

I began making knives in 2008 with a cobbled together self built grinder in a small shop with an extension cord run from the house. I immediately knew I had found my creative outlet and haven't looked back since. 

We are a family business with my wife Amy helping me with all business aspects and our adult children both working part time.

We are in the process of growing and look forward to adding more members to the team in the near future. We're glad to have you follow along with our journey.
The Performance Machined Retainer is a very function driven design. Made to be used on the index and ring finger, with the thumb wrapped over the ramp, it allows for pull cuts, slashes and functions as a punch dagger. It is excellent as a backup and allows the user to transition to a firearm without the need to sheath the blade or drop it on the ground. This design leaves nothing but sharp edges exposed which makes it very difficult to be disarmed. Many of the custom versions of this design are in use with LEOs. 
These are done in CPM20CV steel with a double edged chisel grind. They come with a multi-positional kydex sheath.

    Very innovative design. Light and nimble. Came extremely sharp. Snaps into sheath with a firm hold and retention. The thumb indent is a little awkward . I would like to see McNees design a fuller size version in the future to fit you whole hand and place the blade in the center of your fist and redesign the thumb ramp/divot. Other than that, it is still a solid blade. Definitely suited for last ditch self defense knife and very well made finger slots for retainability.
