You’re walking down the street when, without warning, you’re jumped.
You don’t know why or by who, but suddenly there’s a guy on top of you, punching away… and he might not be alone.
Unable to get to your concealed handgun on your back hip, you reach across your body, under your jacket… and suddenly the handle of a full-sized fixed blade is in your fist.
It gives you a fighting chance – maybe the one that will save your life – maybe even against multiple opponents.
But who carries a “shoulder sheath” for a knife other than some Marvel comic book character, right?
Well, you can, and…
Now the first thing you must understand is that, when it comes to the best weapons for survival, you’re way better off with a fixed blade knife over a “tactical folder” – where legally allowed.
The reality is – if you’re ambushed, you’re not going to be able to get into your front pocket… draw a folder… and snap it open while you’re getting beaten about the head and neck.
A fixed-blade knife is always ready – WHEN you can get to it – which is why we figured out how to build this rig.
Here’s how to make one yourself…
- Basically, you’ll just need a fixed blade knife like the kind we talk about in our Extreme Survival Weapons guide. Make sure your knife has a leather or kydex-style (preferred) sheath with 2 grommet holes at the bottom.
- Next, cut off about 4-5 feet of 550 cord.
- Tie both ends of the cord through the sheath grommets so it creates a loop.
- Then just put your arms through the loop with the cord stretched across your back and behind your neck.
(You’ll need to adjust the length so it hangs however you want it on your side.),
That’s all there is to it!
You now have a shoulder harness sheath for your survival knife that’s low profile and easy to create in a matter of minutes.
The Benefits of a Concealed Shoulder Sheath for Your Knife…
One of the benefits of this shoulder harness is that it’s much less obvious than those giant dog-tag neck knives on the market.
Plus, it’s much more accessible if you’re in a ground fight because it moves around less than a neck knife tends to do.
You can even get to it with your same-side hand when somebody’s on top of you, as long as it isn’t pinned beneath you.
And if it is, squirm around some and you’ll find you CAN get to it.
Because you can never be too prepared!
