Discussion round the kitchen table a few days ago strayed to boot knives. Legality aside, it seems some people in my various circles have been known to stick blades in their boots.
I look online and I feel that I see two types of knives - one, reputable knives in belt sheaths, and two; no-name knives in what I'd call a 'boot knife sheath'. For purposes of this discussion, a boot knife sheath is one with a clip on it that slips over the top of the boot.
See, what I don't get is, how is one to secure a knife's sheath in one's boot if this sheath does not clip on? What do you do with a pull-on boot? Maybe I should buy my own clip and secure it on? Did yon cowboys and roughnecks of old just shove the sheath in hard enough to stick when the knife was pulled?
I get that feeling like there's something obvious here that I'm missing. Somebody brainstorm with me.
