    Knife on waist belt (left), trilobite on the right (just close to the bellow pocket).
    In case no pocket I'd prefer to put the line cutter on the shoulder strap.

    If you would you'd have two set of shears, one for each buttock...

    Don't bet on it, Healthways BFK on the inside of the right calf.

    Also a Trilobite on upper left BP strap. Shears on right side waist strap. A small sharp knife on left side waistband on my Freedom Plate. I also have a vintage reg set, I use occasionally,with a pressure/depth gauge console with a small sharp knife on the back.

    Of course those are the edged tools I regularly carry, I have a lot of miscellaneous tools, some with edges, that may show up depending on the dive plan.

    I was surprised that the traditional calf mount was not a choice, and multiple locations could not be selected, as most divers I know carry more than one cutting cutting device.

    Here's another, calf mount too. It's where my bush knife hangs when I'm on land (Context depending), and I automatically reach there for a knife when one is needed, comforting in the land of big pike.

    ...now regarding the BFK and the crotch strap, since the topic is up... Let's just say any knife in that area looks tiny. : D
