I wanted to get my camp knife out of the way. I found a local leather shop that made me this behind the back carry sheath. I really like it, and it is quite functional.

Looks well done.
How hard is it to put the knife back in the sheath with it behind your back?
Not bad so far, still have all 10 digits. I put my thumb near the opening, and run the spine along it so I can sense where the knife is in relation to the sheath. Like one does when practicing Iaido. It seems to work. But, you are correct, care is required.

Just be careful when you sit down.

A bit low, for my taste.

It wasn’t your fingers I was thinking you need to be careful not to stick :)

Cool concept... I’ve just never been able to get used to much of anything behind about the 4 and 8 o’clock position on my belt..

Even back in the bad old days of my cop career I hated having handcuffs and other crap that far back on my bat belt...

It sits in the bottom of small of my back when I sit (the rise of my glutes) but not uncomfortable. So far so good. We shall see i suppose and then it will become a side draw if it doesn't pass the reality test.

My thoughts too. Only ever done the one back sheath.
I am not leaning on it, I don't think. I will see when I actually try to nap against a tree one fall day. But, the idea was to get the big knife out of the way until needed.
