The one in the t shirt was made by my very good friend Jeff Marshall known here as Twinblade, the other was a convertd gun belt , both work well!
Those look good Bax!
think I would need to look into that badric rig Bax
I have made a couple out of braided kangaroo. An 8-plait strap and a 12-plait.
This is the eight...
here is my tutorial on how I made it...
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?
Just curious, what machete is that?
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.
Thanks for lookin'!
I'm sure it's just a typo, but I'm sure you mean 'Northwind".
I may be wrong but didnt David Morgan design and make the famous indiana jones bull whip?
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.
Yes you are right, HUA problem!!
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.
Great Looking set up Larry
That's a pretty sweet little setup. Looks perfect for woods bumming. Did you make it?
Tapatalk ate my spelling and grammar.
Bill , Glad to see you over here, you will recognize quite a few I am sure, I still go to the other place a lot but hang out here more cause of the interest in Axes.
Would love to see Skabs version of a Baldric Rig. Hint hint.
LOVE this site!!!!
Learn something each time I come visit
Thanks - No - I didn't make it. Goose made the axe sheath, the shoulder strap and pouch called Ibruche. Here is a thread with more pics...
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.

Here is the tutorial: http://www.dirttimeforum.com/index.php?topic=3004.0
I was looking at this thread and my wife, Tif, said "Who is that? ... he is adorable!"
I said "That's Larry!" ..... she then said "awwww ... He's so cute!"
Most of the ladies just say , He looks really old!
Tell her thanks and clear some pms so I can pm ya!
Question for Schwert - what type of jacket is that, and where did you get it? I've seen photos of John McCann wearing one like it. I'm curious abouit it. Thanks!
Thanks for that. Now if I only had the patience.
Scagel with a Barkie Baldric rig
Filson Mackinaw Cruiser....Classic.
Not Cheap, but worth it.
I have one of those, paid $200 for it on eBay but damn, those Filsons are worth every penny.
That's nice I want one
Love those leather rigs. I need to come up with something like that for my Bark River Gunny.
! That rig is badass. Did you make it?
What axe is that? And plz share where you got the rig.
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...
How much was the war hawk?
I don't actually remember, I was on Iz's wait list for so long! Here is a thread about them:
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.
Great design there _Plainsman!
Here the same strap and pouch, but with my Cinnci Machax:
I'd like to have that rig for my molle pack
Very nice setup! I may need to look into something like that for the cold months.
