    Fixed blades that you CC as a backup

    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?

    I don't carry a fixed blade all the time, but when I do, it's my Bud Nealy Tung Pan. I've only had it for a few weeks now, but really like it. Nealy's patented MCS carry system is flexible and well designed.

    I carry a KaBar TDI LDK

    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    K-bar TDI, fullsize.

    I've also been known to carry double edged boot knives either in the boot (slow) or on the waist.

    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.

    Better it in an evidence bag than me in a body bag!

    Real similar to the cave bear.....just a little different blade profile. I was going to get a cave bear until I talked to Bud's wife Toni. She told me about this one and the beautiful burl scales. Gotta say, she was right!

    Cold Steel Safemaker III @ 10:00 with a tek-lok on the sheath, or CRKT Companion @ 2:00 in a "drawpoint" sheath from Shawn's Tactical.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Been carrying this one for almost four years on my belt, everyday except when I have to fly.

    5" of cutting surface with 1/2" choil. Arizona Desert Ironwood slab handle with file work on the spine. Rob trains in the defensive blade work as well.
