“As a foreigner in so many places and dealing with so many different laws, what are your preferred methods of concealed blade carry positions?”
Following your lifestyle, I’ll be vagabonding after my early retirement next year. But I will first explore all 50 states of the United States. My problem is that I’ve been carrying firearms most of my life and for the first time I will not be able to as I will leave my home state. So my option will be to carry a knife for defense as a replacement. As a foreigner in so many places and dealing with so many different laws, what are your preferred methods of concealed blade carry positions?
The knife I carry and its positioning on my person depends on where I am, what I’m doing and what I’m wearing – as per responsible weapons carry.
For most scenarios when I’m wearing pants with a belt, I equip my Exilis Knife inside the waistband (IWB). Front right towards the hip and angled naturally along my “v-cut” muscle section. This generally allows for the most efficient and fastest deployment.
The same method applies when I’m wearing shorts. However, if I’m going shirtless, the knife is clipped to my underwear waistband instead of the shorts’ – to conceal the pocket clip and negate printing.
When I was working, my secondary blade was IWB, centered in the rear, over the small of my back.
For special circumstances or imminent threat scenarios, I utilized the “vanishing / retracting palmed blade method”. It’s a way to covertly carry and ready a knife in the hand in plain sight.
I never clip a blade or even a multi-tool over the exterior of my pockets, having the clip visible.
