The cold steel is heavy, the rat is expensive but I love them both.

In the woods...
I would like to explore a fixed blade as an EDC, but I would need to carry horizontally, due to my "overhang". I currently carry two knives EDC. One is an assisted opening folder in my front pocket (looking a a new Buck USA for this association) and a folding box-cutter with a replaceable blade in my back, left pocket.

Any suggestions for a horizontal, fixed-blade that is secure in the sheath/holster?

I have a Guardian 3 that I can carry horizontally or vertically IWB. My intention was to EDC it, but I found that I much preferred carrying a folder in my pocket every day. The functionality adder wasn’t worth the added bulk along with an IWB Glock, and all the other stuff I carry (phone, keys, wallet, flashlight, dip…)

I do really like the fixed blade when I am doing outdoorsy stuff, though.

If you're talking a "Get off me now" knife - the Kabar TDI is a good option. I sometimes carried a Columbia River Knife & Tool Stiff Kiss horizontal. Till we moved here, I made my own kydex holsters and sheathes. SOme of my tools got lost or left behind it seems, so I don't have everything I need to make stuff now. There are a few makers who offer a *good* sheath, the one the TDI comes with is pretty trash.

There's also the Clinch Pick designed by Craig Douglas, that's a solid close in fighting knife. IIRC it comes with a good sheath from jump.

1 plus to the Clinch Pick. I cary one EDC. I have a slight overhang as well, but can make it work easy. If you want to go vertical you may need a different sheath though.

Snapped a couple quick pics of the Bradford Guardian 3 with the Armatus kydex sheath. It’s set up for IWB, and is easy to swap for belt loops for horizontal carry.

Did it come sharp and is it worth the price? Looks awesome

Don’t know if they still make it but JB Knife and tool offer a clinch pick alternative. Would be easy to carry horizontally and takes up very little room. 3 inch long blade. 1 inch at its widest.

Definitely defensive not utility blade at all.

The shivworks ban tang customs products I will vouch as being amazing. I have not handled the China made versions.
