Today received my second MD: a mint ATAK2 with an assortment of sheaths. The knife feels wonderful in the hand, is shaving sharp, and makes a great addition to my Operator (daily and travel carry)

My only question is how does one wear the dundee rig? I actually feel a bit dumb having to ask but....

Thanks

Bob

Hi Bob!

Up-side-down across the back, the handle at the right side of your back above the belt, the long strap over the left shoulder and the breast to the buckle of the belt (if your sheath is "right-handed")

The dundee-rigs are compfy and if you wear a bit more clothing then a t-shirt, your knive will not be visible to others.

Enjoy your ATAK!

Peter

OK, have now spent about 3 days wearing Dundee rig w/ ATAK2 18+ hours per day. Seems to work VERY well. Carry is comfortable and is fairly easy to conceal. I find that a sweater while in street clothes (especially cardigan) works well, while at work in scrubs I have to leave the top untucked. I also am more comfortable with a t-shirt under the straps. Sheath remains secure despite some rather heavy lifting/running around.

Nice jOb MD!

Thanks Peterr for the tips.

Any other carry ideas out there when using a cross draw or slip sheath as a starting point?.

Still waiting for my in depth hands on experience with a crossdraw.The slip sheath works great tucked in your waistband wherever
1.)comfortable
2.)easy to get to.

Dave-

I find the crossdraw to be easy to access but not all that easy to carry especially concealed. This may have to do with my size (5'5'a 150#) but it tends to stick out beyond my hip and knock things. MD made the point on another recent sheath thread that he designed the thing mostly for shop use. Since the one sheath I dont have for my ATAK2 is a slip sheath, I've tried using the crossdraw IWB; this works ok but the retention lip is still way too robust for this role unless you really hook or traction the thing; o/w when you draw you get the whole sheath not just steel. I have been working on using the crossdraw inverted in an old shoulder holster harness from a beretta military model, but seems a bit cumbersome.

Thanks for the information Bob!Mad Dog usually puts the retention on 10,thats so they can be jump certified(Parachutes).I may request a little less retention on mine later.I am spoiled being local to M.D.Labs,I can get things adjusted easily.
