    For those carrying an Izula..

    How do you carry them? If possible, could you post pictures, I'm looking at getting one for EDC but am trying to figure out the best way to carry it.

    I started carrying an Izula as my EDC knife about a month ago. I wanted it to stay as close to flat on my belt as possible so I used some paracord to create a couple of belt loops on the sheath. I carry it inverted at the center of my back; it's easily accessible unless you are sitting in a vehicle, but you do have to take care when re-sheathing it. If I can find my wife's camera, I will try to get a photo of it for you.

    I just carry it in my left pocket. When I pull it out, the front top of the sheath (?) grabs the inside of my pocket, much like a small handgun's pocket holster. This has never failed me, but I've seen a couple guys on Bladeforums cut a little nick or grooves on the top corner for it to catch even better.

    I've carried it a few times on my belt also, but that's not really for me. I prefer pocket carry. You can also use the lanyard, tie it to your belt and leave the knife in your pocket. this way, you can either pull it until the cord stops it and it comes out, or use it as a fail-safe if it doesn't catch on your pocket and open.

    I carry this knife more and more the longer I have it. I actually prefer it over my Chris Reeve Sebenza that I just love!

    No pics of carrying, but here's mine...

    That's kind of a strange way to decide on an EDC knife. I'd think that someone would first figure out how they wanted to carry a knife (along with other usage requirements) and then determine which knives best fit those requirements, as opposed to the other way around.

    That's essentially what I'm doing here, I'm not going to buy something that I can't carry comfortably/easily and thereby will more likely to leave it at home. I'm hoping someone can show me some good ways to carry one concealed so that I may purchase one

    Scroll just a tad down and you'll find how I carry mine.
    Good luck!

    Thanks for the PIC's. Otherwise, I wouldn't have a clue what the heck an Izula was.

    I have one of these. I quit carrying it. Too aggravating.

    I carry mine in a home made merc harness. Google it. I'll try to put up a picture tomorrow. Carries awesome. Basically no imprinting in just a t shirt. Completely invisible even in the lightest of jackets

    I wrapped the handle in orange cord, put it in my back pocket, figured out the length of the cord that i needed to loop it through a belt loop, and cut the stock cord to that length. carry it tip up. I dont have a knife for a self defense situation; I suppose it could be, but I usually have 14 rounds of 45acp on me. I use the knife as a tool; open boxes, etc. I dont even know its there. Great little knife.

    THAT is real cool JJEXP. I have read tons of good things about this knife but never seen one in person considering getting one and this is a great thread.

    I have a couple different set-ups for my izula. I use the sheath that came with it for a necker, just add a small stainless carabiner & a bead chain ( I prefer the bead chain instead of paracord in a cqb situation). There's a guy I know who makes custom kydex sheaths, and I had him make me one for horizontal belt carry.
