Your fixed blade knife with sheath must be secured to your bug out bag in such a manner as to allow for quick access when needed.  The two best places to attach a fixed blade knife with sheath are

1 – To the front portion of the right or left  shoulder strap.

2 -On the right or left side of the pack so it extends high enough above the pack to easily reach over your shoulder to unfasten the knife from the sheath and quickly draw the knife as needed.  

The left or right side choice for both methods can be determined by which hand you plan on using the weapon with.  My personal mounting choices would be right side on both of the above scenarios. 

  1. Oooh dear! I’d love to see what the Brit cops would make of one of those babies sticking out of my bug out bag primed for instant action!! What fun! lol 😉

    You are going to have to have a talk with them and set them straight. They are making things very difficult for you law abiding citizens over there 🙂

    In civil times I have a original (non chinese) cold steel bushman inside the bag. When the balloon goes up Im thinkin compression strap on waist. Need to get one of those blackhawk drop holsters that sit proximal on the thigh , so as not to be covered by the load bearing waist strap of the pack.thanks

      Sounds like a good setup highdesertlivin. I had modified/replaced my bug out bag waist belt with a thick pistol belt so I keep my molle pistol holster and spare mags on my bug out bag waist belt if the SHTF; hence my placement of the knife as described in the blog post 🙂
