    For conceal carrying a pistol the UltiClip works well clipped to the waistband of your shorts. I would imagine it would work well for a knife as well. You could wear it IWB with the UltiClip to keep it in place.

    If I'm understanding your problem, what I'd do is get a fixed blade 3-4 inches in length with a thin handle (think para cord wrapped) & wear it as a neck knife. Total concealment & quick access.

    I dunno what kind of shorts you'd be in that wouldn't have loops, but if they have a drawstring you can always tie the loose ends to the sheath and go IWB. Another option I dont see mentioned here is to tape or paracord it to your hiking staff if you'll have one, that gives the benefit of it being close to hand while you're on the move and it's pretty easy to remember where it is. (Not mine, I read that in The Backwoodsman ). If you're not wearing a belt you could do the fanny pack, that would add storage and a belt option without loops.

    When I saw that first pic, I knew it had to be your's. Great work as always, and your design is revolutionary.
    Love that Ruger...what model, Dave?
    BTW, I love that custom belt and matching cross-draw that you did for me...

    That still requires a belt, and a sturdy one at that.

    The obvious answer to the OP is the shoulder harness, the one seen here on the lower knife (CS Oyabun) has been borrowed from a United Cutlery "Karambit", with extra padding added at the neck bone level.

    The metal jaw pinch clip will clip to belt less gym pants and the like, to keep it from swinging.

    The limitations (for me) are 7.5" blades and 8 ounces. The Oyabun is pretty much the top end of that.

    Thanks Don @Sonnydaze. Sure glad ya like that outfit I built ya. That's an Old Model Vaquero in .45 Colt. It's had many a mile horseback packing in big bear country. That holster went to a guy in Alaska. Quite a character, he'll usually pick up his orders in person on his Harley. Drinks a gallon of coffee with us and zooms off to Reno or Boston or Billings or.... Shows up in a week or two again, drinks another gallon of coffee and zooms off again. Nichole came up with the idea for the Beltless sheath as she normally only wears a belt when riding. It was a more difficult idea to translate into reality than it appears. Went through about eight prototypes till we got er right.
