Columbia River Ed Hoy Biotac Knife Harness
Columbia River Ed Van Hoy Biotac Knife Harness

The Biotac knife harness, designed by Ed Van Hoy and produced by Columbia River, will change the way you carry your fixed blade knives. Particularly great for neck knives, the Biotac allows you to position your knife comfortably in six basic inverted positions, and it is fully adjustable so that you can position it the way you like. The Biotac requires a positive locking sheath, with a snap or detent to hold the knife securely, because of the inverted carry. It works great for both open and concealed carry.

Waist carry, left or right; 5. Under shoulder carry with underarm retention; and 6. Small of back carry with dual shoulder cords.
