• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

Been meaning to thank you for this Dwayne

Dwayne, I've been meaning to thank you for your work and for putting up with my wild requests.

I've had this rig for a while now, and though I haven't had the chance to use it as much as I'd have liked, I have put a decent number of miles on while wearing it now. It has become my preferred method of carry for my large knives and hawks. It's super comfortable to wear, the weight of a big Battle Mistress (or two sometimes!) just disappears. It keeps long sheaths out of the wet brush and deep snow as they're not down by my knee like a dangler would be. It's comfortable under a jacket, and even with a slung rifle on my shoulder. And I can pick and choose what blade or hawk I want for that day. I really can't say enough how much I like this rig. Thank you again.

Some pics of the epitome of large knife/ hawk carry. Sorry if they're crappy.

And under a coat with what I was carrying.

That is awesome! I remember working that rig, and thinking it was a great design. I wish I could remember who I got the pattern from.

Thank you for the kind words! I really appreciate it.
