Carrying a fixed-blade knife IWB?
Does anyone do this? I did for a while, taking a standard knife sheath and bending the belt loop backwards so it could attach to my belt while the body was inside my pants. It worked okay, and I went to a folder after becoming licensed to carry an actual firearm.
But, does anyone do this? I have only actually ever personally seen one fixed-blade knife with a sheath actually designed to be carried concealed. It was some smallish Gerber with a 3" Tanto blade, IIRC. Thus, I know it is not super common. I have read articles on different ways people do it and they were basically Intro-To-IWB-Carrying-A-Knife articles similar to what a new CCer might read about when searching for carry positions.
Now, I have a pretty nice Folder that I trust completely (Cold Steel, 4" blade), but I have had this urge to get something fixed for IWB carry.
Whadya think? Have you done it? Is it valuable being able to get to it that much faster? Does quick access outweigh the convenience of simply throwing the folder in your pocket?
