The “kneck” is a German water spirit similar to the Scandinavian fosse-grim in that it takes the form of a boy sitting in the middle of a stream playing a harp. Some superstitious people carry a knife when they went out in a boat on the river to protect themselves from the “kneck” should it decide to change into something more threatening.
