I only carry fixed blades. This is the current one I have taken to carrying IWB with a cover shirt or jacket
This one for now
MKPHC this set up is a regular kydex sheath from mashcat with an oversized stud that is threaded to take a stainless screw. I then put it thru one of the rivet holes in sheath to act as a stop so knife and sheath do not slide down. It is a very old stlye of carry. The Stud is basicly an oversized Sam Brown stud that I have made for me. I have been carrying knives in leather this way for years. In leather you need a sheath maker to make the sheath just tell them you want a sash style sheath with a sam brown stud. In Kydex it is very easy to rig a sheath this way. All you need is a threaded stud. Mine are oversized but I think Tandy leather sells regular sam brown threaded or rivet on studs. On Kydex it is best to use a static line what you called a lanyard. When you go to draw the knife fast sometimes the sheath will draw with the knife the static line tops it once it clears your pants and the sheath just falls to the side and hangs there. To rig this just run a cord from tip of sheath like in pic 1 . It is just wrapped around stud for pic. Make cord just long enough that with just the sheath you can loop cord thru belt loop or around belt then pass just sheath thru cord loop . Pull tight and you have a static line. When you pull knife fast the sheath can come with it it will only go till the line pulls tight and pop off leaveing naked blade. When you are not worried about concealment you can carry the knife just thru belt on outside of pants super comfty and very fast on draw. I draw a knife ice pick grip edge faceing forward. I can skin a blade carried this fashion in the blink of an eye. Anyone that trys this carry method gives it time to get used to it I think will come to see that this very old style of carry still is the best

That's the 2008 Blade knife isn't it? Very Nice!
i usually carry a small fixed hanging upside down in kydex like this,
but the larger ones don't work like this.
I really want to discipline myself to carry a larger one like you do.
Thanks for the info.
about a year and a half ago I decided to carry only fixed blades, and now I can carry the way I showed, but I really want carry 3/4/5/6 in the way you do,
but I have to adjust to your method, I will learn it and I'll post pics when I do.
Fixed blades are the only way to go IMO!
I agree if more people learned this way they would carry FB instead.
You EDC a Hellrazor? Just how bad is your neighbourhood?
Seriously, doesn't it dig into you when you're sitting in a car seat?
I find the larger fixed blades will always nail me in the kidneys when I'm riding around. Darn bucket seats!
Granted, my mid-section has started to spread a bit lately...

I've got a Spyderco Kumo on my Christmas wish list. If I get it, I may try EDCing it around town.
Charles May Handi Scandi and Trace, both, because I can't decide which I like better yet.
> Nice, who's the maker?
Thanks, and the maker is as mmmotorcycle told you.
JP's great EDC made me to try making a sheath for this one..
I carry smaller fixed blades just because of comfort reasons. I know folders are more comfortable but if there ever was a SHTF crises and I could not make it home, then I would want a fixed blade with me of some type just for survival purposes. You never know were your gonna be when that crises happens so I want to be prepared. I also carry a back up folder in my pocket and around my neck along with a small minimag light. So all in all I have at least 3 knives on me all the time, its just that one is a fixed blade, 3in or under.
For me, it's a BRK&T Mini Canadian in a Russell Woodswalker pocket sheath when I edc a fixed blade. I'd like to try their Little Creek too. A small FB makes a great companion to a multitool, I think.
Since I don't usually have to tuck my shirts in, I carry this on a daily basis (at least most days):
