    I lost my knife during a dive. Fortunately one of my dive buddies found it on a sandy bottom as the shiny blade reflecting the sun light. Since then, I tether its handle on to its holster to make sure I won't lose it again.

    Several types, EZ line cutter, a knife and shears, all mounted on different locations on the webbing around my waist.
    I used to keep a Ramora mounted on my inflator hose too, but these days I carry my regs on flights, and TSA frowns on such a blade in carry-on.

    Thanks Trailboss, that's actually a lot simpler than I had imagined! I really like that idea!

    I have an Aqualung squeeze knife on my waistband pocket and a Trilobite on my shoulder strap at chest height. Honestly my knife doesn't get a lot of use UW, but I'm a knife guy so it goes with me anyways. The Trilobite gets a lot of use clearing bits of rope or fishing line from reefs.

    Does the blade side tip fold in/out or is it fixed like that?
