    Here are a couple of my experiments trying to find a good combo and carry system (the second pic anyway).

    Today my folders are the usual three, Alox Electrician, Opinel 6, and Okapi Biltong. The fixed is a BK14 Eskabar. It is purely academic today, just lying around trying to persuade myself that the backwash of opioids frm my recent knee surgery is worth the discomfort. The knives aren’t getting any play.

    Hello,
    Pls share some pics and details/specs of your fixed blades, they’re very attractive:thumbsup:, I guess you already know that;).

    Your fixed blade, a custom job? I don’t remember seeing that style, looks very sleek,
    I’m smitten, Red being my favourite and all:)

    You need to start perusing the knifemaker section of the exchange. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for your reply:thumbsup:
    Frankly, since new year I’m way over my budget for knives, if I was to visit customs/knife maker section, I’m really afraid of the outcome:eek:.

    @Aryan29
    If it helps, the blue one I posted on the first page was from one of our makers, too

    I forget, the small one from 1084 in the first pic (called a pocket scapel) is made by Josh (?) before he got better known, he makes a lot of hollow ground hunters in AEBL now, his mark is a capital J. The other one is an Aguila small fixed blades 1095. I tried to find Josh's last name, sorry, maybe it will show up.

    Forgive the flash - between the hour, and the rain, it's still rather dark here.

    FWIW, though, I'm carrying these today (recycled pic - made the folder decision for me...see how randomly made my choices can be @Mikel_24 )

    @Aryan, I will try to get some more photos, I like small fixed blades more, but a folder is convenient. One day I will get a Horsewright, and one of his horizontal sheaths. I like the one above in white bone or stag. I want one of his Coyote or Sonoran models. Again, the carry method is something I am working on.

    Wondering if a Bradford 3.5 would be a good one, I think the 3 would have too short of a handle.

    Yes, I too like small fixed blades. At present I’m having several folders for EDC, just recently started adding small/medium fixed blades to my EDC rotation.
    About horizontal/cross carry and sheaths, I’m told these are some of the best options by @Horsewright :thumbsup:.

    Many Thanks,
    Aryan.
