    That's beautiful work Schwert. I've looked at that tutorial many times, but plaiting looked pretty intimidating to me. This would be a good carry method for winter so I may give it a try. Do you have a source on the kangaroo lace?

    I was reading John McCanns "Stay Alive" book and he had an intresting what he called "Adapter" that he made that fits through the belt loop on a regular hip sheath that turned it into a Baldric rig. Sorry I don't have any pictures of it but if anyone has done something smilar it looks like a very practical idea for a "one size fits all" Baldric rig. Here's his site for the book www.Bepreparedtosurvie.com

    custom collaborative design by ml knives
    the strap system unsnaps and the sheath has a belt loop so it can be used either way

    David Morgan is where I get my lace. His machine cut spools are perfect for such projects.

    If you are speaking of the one I am holding, its a Bark River Northwind, more of a sword than a machete, quite a bit heavier.

    I made this myself for my BK9 using some veg-tanned shoulder I bought from Tandy. It was a lot of fun to make and quite the learning experience. Notice the kydex retention on the handle, which I found while looking for inspiration on Google.

    I'm sure it's just a typo, but I'm sure you mean 'Northwind".

    Right?

    Yes David Morgan braided all the whips for Indiana Jones and Catwoman. He is a wealth of knowledge on braiding.

    He braided this 10' Bullwhip for me several years ago.

    Does this count? I am unfamiliar with Baldric rigs, but I gather that it is shoulder sling carry. Here is one I made out of paracord and fitted with D-rings to attach to my BK2 and or other stuff. I also included a loop at chest level for attaching other items.

    That's a pretty sweet little setup. Looks perfect for woods bumming. Did you make it?

    The Bark River Northwind was a one time affair as it was made up from some left over blades from another project and there are not a lot of them around, its a carbon steel knife that works very well for chopping and trail clearing vines and such as its long enough you dont have to bend over so much, I like it a lot and feel fortumnate to get one.
    The fellow who sold it to me was a really big time collector and friend and has since died of cancer, I liked him a lot and think about Charlie everytime I look at or handle the knife.

    Here are some pics of it and the knife it was made up from, they definitly need a baldric to carry.

    The axe is a Turley War Hawk, awesome blade! I didn't make the sheath or baldric. Goose made the sheath and the strap/pouch was made by a guy named Ilbruche...

    This rig was made by Dwayne at ArmorAlleather. I can snap off the sheath, and put others on. This way, just one strap accommodates several different knives.

    There are some REALLY amazing rigs on this thread!!!

    Here is one that I did. It lets me carry a large Bowie and a small EDC knife together in all of the combinations I could think of.

    Very nice setup! I may need to look into something like that for the cold months.
