    Please excuse the awful picture, it's a bit of 6mm stiff leather with 2 holes drilled in it and 2 small clippy things......

    The leather bit is a belt below your belt to carry knife on

    Thread the leather through the belt loop on your sheath put the clips through the holes, add cordage then you can hang your knife over your shoulder. like a manly handbag!

    If you called your handbag a Baldric you would be right ☺

    Again, please forgive my photographic skills. I've used an old camera strap .but you could use any spare strap or even paracord to make an under arm baldric carry style setup that can be swapped about and used on any sheath including danglers.

    looks like a good way to attach that shef to a webbed military belt as well (the old kind that had holes for wire hook hangers)

    Stumbled upon this on a local web shop. It is an attachement for officers sword.
    Think I might order it to use as a baldric for my Varusteleka Skrama.
    Just have to cut away that middle leather strap.
