    horizontal belt knife

    i'm in the market for a fixed blade knife with a sheath that attaches to a belt in a horizontal way. i EDC a kershaw folder and when i'm heading into the woods i have a japanese made "beater" fixed blade knife that i put on my belt. i find it hard to get out and use because the sheath attaches to my belt vertically, it also can get into the way when i'm sitting. so i'm looking for something that has more stability and can be accessed more easily, has a fixed blade around 4 or 5 inches. any suggestions?

    There are lots of scout style rigs. I agree with you, and I like scout style rigs for the reasons you've given. It's out of the way but still right there. IMO, this is the best, but the sheath will cost more than the knife.

    There are few knives with sheaths from the factory in this style, and if there are, the odds are either the knife or the sheath or both are low quality.

    The best way to proceed would be to have a sheath made to carry a knife you like.

    EDIT: Jaeger, that's an awesome piece at that link. I'd love to see them do Bark River knives as well, although Bark River's sheaths are already great.

    KaBar's can fill that bill...

    I have this one...and it can be worn vertically or horizontally.

    I carry a CRKT minimalist Folts design fixed blade most of the time. It weighs something like 2oz so you really don't even notice it. It's never in the way. Its solid and can be warn as a neck knife if you want to. The sheath can be orienented vertically or horizontally on the belt.

    Where I live a hidden (concealed) fixed blade is a no-no. I built a leather rig for hiking (like the 'Crocodile Dundee' sheath) to hold a SOG S1/S2 Bowie. I have a CRKT Corkum-design 'First Strike' that has a kydex sheath. I take off the belt clip and attach it upside down to the left shoulder strap of my daypack. Totally out of my way, yet right where I need it instantly.

    I always wanted to try one of the Bowen belt-buckle knives, but the belt needs to be purchased with it or custom made.

    A good off-the-shelf pick would be a Buck Omni Hunter. The sheath can be mounted horizontal or vertical, and they feature a wide blade that is shaving sharp. I carry one horizontal and really like it.
