Securing your expensive survival knife in its custom sheath with leather ties or locking lanyards is a solid option. We include ties. Aki provides plenty of length so if you wish you can cut them shorter. Locking lanyards are an option. Leg tie tabs are included for knives and tools with blades over 6 inches. On the larger scabbards, sheaths and neck knife sheaths, Aki supplies the sheath with extra leather tie positions. For instance on the neck knife below the removable tie is added for your convenience.
Long locking lanyard
One lanyard, the length of the knife, wraps around the back of the sheath and loops over the knife’s butt. It holds the knife in its custom sheath with absolute security. Aki creates a “notch” under the belt loop, reinforcing the sheath to receive the lanyard as it wraps around. This is also an easy, one-handed operation. Pictures to the left and below
