    Used to strap the junglas to the inside of my pack and unsheath it to go use it. Thought i might like a way to toss it over my shoulder and carry sheath and all. Kicked around many ideas and this is what i came up with.

    Materials used:
    2" webbing and some paracord
    Hole punch
    Lighter

    Method:
    Flipped an end over on itself and marked three holes in a triangle pattern. Hole punched them out and burned the edges to keep from fraying. This end i attached to the top of the sheath. Run some pracord through and knot it. Marked a comfortable spot where it was easy on and off and made another three hole spot. Run some paracord through two of the three holes and attached to kydex.

    The idea is to grab this out of my bag and toss it over a shoulder and out to go process wood. When im done resheath and carry my product back to camp. With the paracord and tri hole design i can bring the two ends togther instead of attaching to the end of the kydex.

    Maybe not for everyone but how i use this tool in the woods it seems like a help.

    Enjoy. Get out there.

    That blade is 7.75" too long for a "bushcraft" blade. What can you use it for?

    I have a baldric system similar to that in leather. Very handy in the woods even as a primary first line under the pack and attaches well inside the Kubota.

    I did something similar but with a store bought Maxpedition shoulder/bag strap. I like your idea better because it attaches in a less convoluted fashion. Good idea. Here's a pic of my version.

    Mostly batoning wood down to smaller pieces. Cutting down standing dead timber but not all that often. Zombies. Anything a normal person would use an axe for. Never really followed closely to a bushcraft doctrine.

    Also this is in addition to my esee 4 so the length is appreciated sometimes.

    I like what you did with the paracord at the kydex. Super smart.

    Yeah. It's just a single strand with a loop knot tied at each end. Then I can either shoulder.

    Two pics and three beads.
    That's pretty good percentages.

    There is always a SEMO bead. It was off camera.
