Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) is proud to introduce our new production Biotac™ fixed-blade carry system.
Designed by noted custom knife maker and inventor Ed Van Hoy, it uses nylon cord and a locking slider to place a knife in almost any inverted carry position desired. It is designed for carry of fixed-blade knives of all sizes which have a positive locking sheath with a detent or snap to securely hold the knife in place, such as those typically made of glass filled nylon or Kydex®.
Carry options include 1. Standard carry around the neck, fully adjustable for length; 2. Bio neck carry with underarm retention; 3. Bio neck carry with halter retention; 4. Waist carry, left or right; 5. Under shoulder carry with underarm retention; and 6. Small of back carry with dual shoulder cords.
The system works comfortably with open or concealed carry, and is adjustable to handle small to very large fixed blades. It is simple, lightweight, and inexpensive.
Eddie Vab Hoy is one smart guy to come up with this design. There many knives that just don't lend themselves to traditional carry methods. This is a great alternative and let's me carry some of my bigger fixed blade knives. Thanks

Would be very helpful if the video were in focus. Need to have a good, clear shot of the connection to the sheath and where the "loop with Chicago Screw" is positioned.
What is the hook for and where whould it be positioned in each mounting position?

Why is there ZERO instructions on how to attach the harness to the knife? Worthless without info on how to correctly put it on. All the pictures show the cord going through the sheath twice and there is no way to get the thick parachute chord that came with it through the holes on my N.E.C.K. knife sheath twice. Will probably end up just cutting the cord and wearing it like a simple necklace. Bad call on not including step #1.
