i modified another sheath to extend the webbing slot (Dremel to lower limit of slot and kydex blank to fill the gap, ss allen head screws to secure). it gives me a rigid setup which is what i wanted. we'll see how much it pokes me in the side--i am not as slim as i once was!
I wear a Gerber "River Shorty" knife on the waist strap of my harness when I am wearing a BP/W. The "Shorty" has a plastic sheath that snaps on (clicks on) over the 2" harness webbing. It doesn't have a line cutter, though. Nor does it have a shank that can separate from its plastic handle. I have owned this knife since ~1998.
An excellent water sports knife, it meets the unique needs of rafting, paddling, and diving. The deliberately blunt tip makes it perfect for water excursions. Learn more here.
The "Shorty" replaced my Wenoka "Blackie Collins" stilletto, as my back-up knife. The "Collins" is a little bit larger, and is pointed, though it has a line cutter, and a plastic sheath that 2" webbing can thread through, and its 400-series SS blade will separate from its handle for more thorough cleaning. Not a bad knife, IMHO. I still have it. I wear this spring-button knife sometimes on my calf or forearm when snorkeling.
I also wear my older Wenoka knife (my first dive knife; I forget the model name) on the inside of my calf when I am wearing a BP/W, or attached to my Scubapro SSJ. I've owned this knife since ~1987. This, too, is a spring-button knive. Its sheath allows 2" webbing to thread through it, but this knife is a bit large to be worn on a harness waist strap, IMHO. An excellent dive knife (for me).
These 400 series stainless-steel snips / cut easily through line, net, rope, kelp and thin steel cable or even a copper penny! This product works well in emergency situations where a knife might not. Want to slip it on your rig no problem we have an upper loop on the back that allows you to...
