    Has anyone here made heard or seen a knife manufacturered for the Bibb of overalls. I'm a fair size fellow and where overalls every day and got to thinking boy do I need a Bibb knife to carry. I have several neck knives and a blue mill on pocket knives but I'd like to find a short slicer for the Ole Bibb pocket. I might have to make some thanks

    Any little knife would work well. A small sodbuster perhaps. Then there are knives with holes for buttons that can clip to the suspenders.

    Then again you just might have to make one.

    I thought most Mora sheaths attached to overall buttons or Bibb buttons.

    A lot of the plastic mora sheaths have on slot on the belt loop for hooking on the button on the shoulder straps of you overalls.
    Thats the way they have carried them for years there in Sweden from what I understand.

    Yeah I haven't thought of the mora stuff. I'd like to find/make a fixed blade knife with leather sheath that is sort of wide like a pocket holster for my Bibb pocket

    I don’t always wear bibs, but my idea would revolve around an Enzo Necker, Trapper, or a knife of similar size. You could always have a sheath made to accommodate that knife and your bib overall pocket.

    Then you could put some organizer slots for pen, lighter, ferro rod. That way you don’t have stuff just rattling around.
