They look cool but I don’t use/like em. Leather turns to [bleep] after a few washings, dry, hard. 550 doesn’t horn me up. I just told gene and Rocky no lanyard holes on future builds. Personal preference for sure. 👍

Don't see an issue with a lanyard, but I absolutely detest cutouts in blades that hang up on bone spurs etc,

Go up to the campfire and ask a religious question...the answers will make more sense.


added, and for what it is worth most knives are "Boy jewellery".

Same. Most of mine have kydex sheaths now too with enough handle exposed to pull it out without the need for a lanyard.


Theyre creepy bastards that are feeling you out. If all goes right, yall strike up a confidence and next thing you know youre at his house, in his cistern being fattened up so he can make a ladysuit out of you.

I learned to use a thong when cleaning my first elk in a boulder field. Drop the knife and ding the blade for sure, or worse, lose it in a crack between rocks. That said, I have no use for fancy thongs, just run some paracord and throw it away when I get home.

I picked up this 'Meula Bison' knife yesterday at Scheels. Looking at similar knives on line, I came across a comment that stated:
"It is not uncommon for these knives with no hilt between blade & handle, to slip their sheathes even with a strap / snap,
and thus become lost."

I have a couple similar knives - One has a brass lined eyelet the other has no hole in handle - and I won't carry either
on my belt if I'm involved in much activity.

Put reflector rope on it if you want a bright colored cord that will stand out at night. People use this on tents to prevent night time trip wires in the camp site.


Only time I left a knife behind was gutting a evening shot deer... a flashlight sweep would have saved a second trip back out.

Other than that, How was the show Mrs. Lincoln?

For no guard I resort to this approach.
