    What about baldric carry?

  2. Scott Mohr on January 1, 2023 at 1:03 am

    The cold steel kyoto 2 has become a favorite.
    Have a few set up.
    Ulticlip bridged to the center of the sheath to balance it for front pocket.
    Also horizontal front carry using IWB
    pull dot straps on the belt.
    Great video!
    Also horizontal front carry allows you to deploy right or left hand standing or sitting.

  3. Glynn Mitchell on January 1, 2023 at 1:05 am

    I liked the subject matter of the video. If I had the sound turned down and was just watching your hands, I would have guessed you were using meth.

  4. Michael 58 on January 1, 2023 at 1:05 am

    Good informational video , thanks for sharing ,God bless !

  5. Eddie Castellana on January 1, 2023 at 1:06 am

    Black shirt, black belt, very dark jeans. We can’t see how the “samurai” carry is done

  6. Mike Half on January 1, 2023 at 1:06 am

    Ps. Finally took your advice and picked up the 940-2. The grind on the top that gives the tip its weight is cool. Didn’t think it but I think I’ll keep this one for awhile. Thanks man.

  7. kdf357 on January 1, 2023 at 1:07 am

    First I’m seeing the ghoststrike on your channel. Both the 3.3 and the push dagger are on my radar. Iv focused funds on different areas of prepping lately but I’m itching for a new blade. Thinking push dagger ? 😎

  8. Southeastern on January 1, 2023 at 1:09 am

    What is the knife with the ring?

  9. Picking and Piping on January 1, 2023 at 1:09 am

    I’m looking forward to the new MKM Makro that’s coming out soon. Going to be a great pocket carry fixed blade I think.

  10. Mako on January 1, 2023 at 1:11 am

    Anybody know what that last knife (boot knife) is called?

  11. John Keck on January 1, 2023 at 1:12 am

    I like carrying edc fixed blade either iwb, in the pocket or hanging from the belt. Get crafty with paracord! I like to carry my esee 6hm iwb with paracord. I got a custom kydex taco style sheath for it that works great with paracord. Great video man!

  12. MartijnJ on January 1, 2023 at 1:19 am

    Very nice video but i carry my self defence knife in the front on a slight angle

  13. ivan svalker on January 1, 2023 at 1:24 am

    I’m from LA california. To carry a fixed blade it has to be showing. How do I do that

  14. JC on January 1, 2023 at 1:28 am

    would you have a link for that appendix carry clip?

  15. Scott Mohr on January 1, 2023 at 1:29 am

    If you want to try something a little different order the 17mm denim jeans button’s and mount above the right front pocket so a mora 511 will hang inside the front pocket.
    Personal favorite fixed blade carry.

  16. Apryl DeBord on January 1, 2023 at 1:30 am

    Ok so I’m a woman wanting to carry everyday for safety, but I live in leggings. Help! I don’t want to do a neck carry.

  17. Brandon Jones on January 1, 2023 at 1:30 am

    It was Bothersome how ayou slammed on the Bradford carry options a little bit not presenting pictures or anything of the other options available especially because you showed like every possible option with the Esee.

  18. Transformingbeastmaster on January 1, 2023 at 1:31 am

    U forgot mercenary carry

  19. Mike Half on January 1, 2023 at 1:37 am

    Those bradfords are nice. And customer service is the mom. The best.

  20. Phlfwlr on January 1, 2023 at 1:37 am

    I got the Izula with S35VN and extended G10 Scales. First quality fixed blade I ever bought and I love it.

  21. Shavo on January 1, 2023 at 1:37 am

    i picked up an Amtac blades Northman a while back and it comes with a deep carry discreet concepts clip on the sheath so it carries just like any pocket knife and i absolutely love this thing. the blade is a bit menacing as its primary role is a self defense blade but you can use it for just about everything and it works great. bit pricey as well but you do get 2 sheaths and a trainer all in one package. if i for some reason am not carrying that i carry Tu Lam style as you mentioned with his Sakura or a few other various blades. Good stuff, cheers.

  22. M C on January 1, 2023 at 1:39 am

    Good video I edc the artisan sea snake neck style but have been looking into other options thanks for this

  23. Ryan Hendon on January 1, 2023 at 1:42 am

    Have you tried the clinch pick

  24. Legion Tacticool Cutlery on January 1, 2023 at 1:45 am

    Excellent info thank you!!!

  25. Matt Adler on January 1, 2023 at 1:46 am

    a worthwhile viewing for sure. Thanks for taking the time to address this subject comprehensively. I think it was well paced, and thorough. I do wish that the production boot knife market was a little more filed out. I feel like my options for a decent boot knife that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg are severely limited. I carry a Cold Steel Counter Tac 2 as my usual boot carry (yes for defensive purposes only, as it does not have a conventional grind suited to utility) and its a great dagger, but I would like to have some other good ones to choose from. S&W are fine for the purpose, but they don’t excite me, and then there are tons of garbage ones. Past that, you really need to go custom or mid tech (big bucks) Anyway, I wanted to mention that I actually like to carry an edc fixed blade clipped to my suspender strap, so that it hangs vertically just inside a jacket or zip up hoodie. I know its not for everyone, but it really is an excellent mounting option. I prefer suspenders to belts for both holding up pants, and attaching my knife. Thanks for the great vid. You won my sub for sure!

  26. Jacob krill on January 1, 2023 at 1:48 am

    Shoulder holsters are the best 💯

  27. T B on January 1, 2023 at 1:51 am

    Inside the waist band with a clip,all day everyday,safe,secure ,not moving on your pant and stealthy
