Straight Pocket Knife Carry System
Cowles makes those neat little pocket knives that don't
fold up. Cool little knives, and a great idea for people
who need a knife in their hand and ready to cut NOW! (It
never ceases to amaze me why real working cowboys carry
slip joint folders stuffed way down into their tight blue
jeans' pocket. When that rope is wrapped around their horse's
legs and the calf is running the other way is not the time
to try opening a Case trapper with gloves on!) Don makes
these nice leather sheaths for his knives with some small
Cowles has designed his pocket knives to be used and carried. To this
end, his sheaths include some features not often found with other
knives. The sheath itself (see Figure 1) is equipped with a William
Henry pocket clip, and in cases where materials (magnetic blade material;
cowhide sheath) permit, a rare earth magnet to help retain the blade.
The clip can be seen at the left of the sheath. The swelling in the
leather you see below the clip is the rare earth magnet.
The sheath is designed
to carry inside the pocket or waistband. Figure 2 illustrates the
knife being carried in a shirt pocket...

The idea is to provide a safe and secure means of carrying the knife,
while still keeping it readily accessible for the task at hand. We
believe our system accomplishes that mission.
