I certainly don't disagree w/ anything you said. From what I've seen of Kalifornia, protest is all the People can do, since the courts there strike down the People's vote / voice with regular abandon. TP

Sitting can be a problem from time to time. About the only time sitting exposes my knife or holster is when I am in the saddle. When riding the HD my body position when I have my feet up on the highway bars CAN expose the knife. It all depends on how I position myself on the seat. If I slide as far back as I can it exposes the knife, but if I slide up a little closer to the tank all is well.
One thing you must keep in mind is that a biker jacket is not all that long. If you wear a regular jacket there is a good chance that it has a longer tail than the leather I wear.

Does anyone use a shoulder rig for vertical carry? That really what i'm leaning towards. Solves the sitting problem, but its a bit more hassel to put on and adjust. I remember seeing a website that made those type of rigs but cant remember who made it.

CRKT. Bud Nealy and a few others I can't remember as well...There was the guy from the Crocodile Dundee movies who made the back sheath for the bowie.

Any leatherworker, holster, sheath, saddle maker can make you a rig.

Depending on which model sheath you have with your Nimravus will decide how you carry it. I have a first model with the metal boot clip on the side. I carried it for years in the front of my pants behind my belt and it was fast. The newer models are classic crap sheaths makers ship as an afterthought. I hate the things. I also carry a full size Gerber combat knife behind my back, inside the belt on the strong side. I had the sheath custom made and its fine for my body type, if you are portly or dont know how to dress for carrying a weapon you may have issues

Good luck

The 2nd Amendment does not cover knives! You got a problem with that then join AKTI or KnifeRights.org for action against stupid knife laws such as when they lately successfully defeated the US Custom claim of AO knives being switchblades.

Then you had better be starting to harp against Mass, D.C., Chicago, San Francisco etc who have basically told SCOTUS to go screw themselves.
No, the Constitution states "right to keep and bear arms", didn't say firearms, muskets, cains, baseball bats, it states arms which means all the above. Better learn about your country and your rights or you'll loose both.

I've carried smaller fixed blades with a MercHarness...simple 550 cord, figure-8 harness and a decent Kydex sheath rentention. I've been carrying a Mad Dog PATAK that has 5" blade for the past 12 years or so on the belt (vertical) when in uniform the BDU/ACU/OCP shirts cover it well.

Another options I've been toying with are the horizontal sheaths for cross-draw...carried in the front. It's less concealed with some of my outdoors knives, but I have a nice little Ka Bar (small) TDI with a kydex sheath for fast access.

What I like about the Merc-Harness is that it's easy to access when seated.

In MO you can open or conceal as long as the blade is less than 4 inches.

In California you do not ever get the option of carrying any weapon.
we have no right to protect ourselves because we voted Democrat so we could get free money.

Hell our Governor just signed 5 anti gun laws into law but vetoed a 6th bill and all anyone is talking about is that he vetoed one. nobody is talking about the 5 he signed

In Texas the length is up to 5 1/2 inches, fixed or folding. The legislature also opened up switch blades to everyone the last session so you can do just about anything with that except a two edged blade.
