In the question of carrying a fixed blade knife as a backup to your primary arm, what blades do you guys carry and/or recommend, and what rig do you use to carry it in?

Why so SERIOUS?
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

I don't carry fixed blades much, but when I do, it's either a TOPS UTE II, which appears to be discontinued because I didn't see it on their website. There are a lot of other nice smaller fixed blade on their site, and they have belt clip/neck carry options. I personally don't like the neck carry option because it tends to slide around.
The other fixed blade knife I will carry is the MOD Razorback on belt clip.
If you want something inexpensive, a CRKT Stiff KISS with a cord-wrapped handle would work nicely.
