Casstrom No. 3 Dangler Adapter for Knife Sheaths

I live on acreage and it is rare to find me working without a fixed blade knife on my belt. I’ve found that this can be done much more comfortably with dangler style sheaths. Recently, while talking to a friend who makes sheaths about having a custom dangler sheath made for a favorite knife, he recommended that I just take a look at a dangler adapter instead. He mentioned the adapters from Casstrom specifically.

The Casstrom No. 3 Dangler consists of a leather loop with an aluminum gate clip that makes it easy to install it on the belt loop of your sheath. The leather loop is riveted closed so there are no worry about snaps coming undone and loosing your knife at an inopportune time. The leather and gate clip are available with a number of color options.

I need to use mine longer before I try to complete a full review but initially, this seems to be the most convenient type of dangler adapter I’ve tried. They are available from a number of sources but I purchased mine on Amazon.

Traylor Kwaikens

Its tempting to think that a Kawaiken pattern knife is easy to make look good with its inherently clean and simple lines but it is actually a bit risky. Do it right and your knife will look sleek and elegant in its simplicity. Do it wrong and… Well, it just looks cheap.

TJ Traylor does Kwaikens right. The elements of the knife appear balanced and uncluttered. The lines are allowed to stretch to all the way from the butt of the grip to the tip of the blade. Traylor has the Kwaiken down pat.
