    The Gun Carrier’s Knife: Considerations

    I don't carry a "real" knife around. Perhaps I should. Here's some advice from someone who may know what they are posting about.

    Why don't you carry a knife?

    I really liked the Microtech Ultratech, but have to carry a Benchmade Infidel because I can use it left handed (weak side). The Ultratech comes out of the pocket the wrong way and I have to flip it over to get to the trigger. Other options will show up farther down the thread I'm sure.

    FYI: You can flip the pocket clip on a Ultratech to the front handle by loosening the glass breaker then flipping the pocket clip and then re-tightening the glass breaker.

    I carry strong side with my knife as I rather have my flashlight weak side. Being able to use my flashlight is a higher consideration for me than my knife. pistol strong hand, flashlight support. Plus o don't like having multiple clips on the same pocket
    Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.

    I carried my flashlight and knife strong side tonight and didn't like having both clips in my pocket. After reading your post I moved the light over to the weak side and kept the knife strong side. It works for me but I'm still thinking about the yeager msr tdr knife holster over the belt buckle. It would help to balance out the carry load. And I plan on keeping the fenix weak side from now on.

    Large folder strong side, flashlight weak side (for the reason JollyMon mentioned), smaller folder (identical to primary except in size) clipped at top of weak side pocket parallel to belt. Larger pockets help; internal shape of pocket is also important. Most jeans are out. This is a consistent practice, and always a consideration tested in the dressing room when buying pants.

    I will have to try that. I like the knife on the left (weak) side because I trained for fencing left handed and am better with edged items in the left hand.
