    Fred Perrin does a variation on the IWB- he uses a thick braided lanyard, and a "leash" attached to the bottom of the sheath. The leash is attached to your belt/beltloop,and the knife is tucked down the side of your pants, with the lanyard hanging out. Draw is basically running your thumb along your waistline, until you feel the lanyard, thumb and index fingers colse on the lanyard, and jerk upwards. The fingers close around the grip, as it comes out of your pants. Removal from the sheath is accomplished by reaching the end of the leash. Works best with blades 4" or less.

    I've played with this;but my overall preference is grip "out" carry,IWB. This would be a good totally out-of-sight method,though.

    I believe pics are either on Don Rearic's site,or at the Perrin link from there.

    If I feel the need for a fixed blade, I'll go with my Gerber Commando which rides in a really neat sheath attached to my SAM ANDREWS shoulder rig. To draw the knife grab the handle which is extended from the side of the "off side" of the holster harness and give a sharp yank DOWNWARD and it snaps free! The sheath snaps onto the spare mag holders that mount horizontally in stacked fashion. Awesome arrangement. http://www.andrewsleather.com look at accessories for the Monarch rig.

    You know, I'm coming to the same conclusion. I've got a number of clip folder knives including Emerson Commander (on me now), Emerson mini-Commander (on me now), Emerson Karambit (no, it's not on me now, what kinda guy carries three kinves? Hmmm...), a Spyderco Native and a favorite Strider/Buck/Tarani.

    They're all great knives, but even with the Wave feature on the Emersons' they're nowhere near as fast or as reliable as a fixed blade would be. I think you could bring a fixed blade in to action from the 2:00 position in a reverse grip (or ice pick grip as it's sometimes called) so fast it'd be a blur.

    I am also in Colorado. I carry a Benchmade resistor with a 3.4 inch blade. It comes with a nifty sheath which I use to carry IWB around 5 o clock

    The sheath doesn't look like an IWB; how do you carry it IWB?

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