    thanks man, iv always been para-cord-dumb.. iv tried wrapping knives before that weren't mine and it never worked well, therefore i decided to get a badass bk14 and force myself to play with it a little :).

    Just run the cord through the rivet holes in a X configuration, then tie a couple knots burn the ends and your good to go. Slide your belt between the sheath and the para cord. Real easy stuff! :thumbup:

    Oh and it will not be wimpy, 550 pounds is plenty strong enough... Your belt will break before that para cord will.

    i didn't mean wimpy as in break, i meant i didn't want my sheath jumbling around like a floppy piece of plastic bouncing around haha

    It has always been pretty tight when I did it. I'm sure another Beckerhead will be along to show you pics. How do you like the knife so far though? Pretty badass huh? :D

    Funny enough, the Becker line seems to cover just about every eventuality that you can come up with.

    The only reason to shop outside of the BK&T line is to feed the sharp and shiny 'Gotta have It' addiction

    There are a few ways. You can run it through top to bottom on both sides and then braid it, that's how I have my 14. You can do the X configuration which I think it was Bladite that has the coolest one, if I remember right.

    Moose carried his 14 inside the waistband, with the little paracord loops on the outside to use on his belt.

    thats sweet.. if i decide to carry inside the waistband ill consider this wrap, but i feel like most of my clothes can efficiently conceal it on the outside of my waistband as it is due to its small size

    It would work for the inside of your belt as well, but for the outside, I would go with Bladite's paracord X. Lemme find a pic. GImme a sec.

    Good for vertical or horizontal carry, or if you didn't weave the cross pieces you could carry it at an angle.
