    Don't carry it inside the boot. Years ago, when Dad was in the Army (Germany, right after WW II), a fellow soldier carried a Cattaraugus 225Q 5" fixed blade knife inside his boot. He jumped out of a "deuce-and-a-half" as it rolled to a halt, flexing his knees to absorb the shock. The impact sent the Cattaraugus right through its sheath, his foot and the sole of the boot, lodging in the dirt!:eek: The wound became infected. He spent some time in the hospital and received a medical discharge. Lesson learned: always carry boot knife or any other sheath knife on the belt. Let's all stay safe out there!:)

    I carry an S&W boot knife on the outside of my right boot. The clip is solid and respectable. Good point and it came paper-cutting sharp. not top-of-the-line but it works for what I want it to do, which is get stabby when the SHTF.

    U keep my izula in my boot. Had a $20 leather sheath made, for me at work I keep it I'm a contractor and usually in award positions and if I'm sanding or painting wearing the coveralls keeping it in my boot is the easiest access most of the time. I keep another in my back pocket but for me it's just utility
