Mount the sheath on your belt. The TDI comes standard with a hard-plastic sheath, complete with a clip for quick removal of the belt, and with a more permanent strap option, which you can thread your belt directly through.
Mount the sheath on your chest webbing. Both the clip and the straps can be affixed to load-bearing vest and webbing rig setups, enabling it to be strategically placed on your body, where it can be used most effectively.
Thread a ball chain through the hole in the sheath to carry the knife around your neck. A slim ball chain, like those used for military dog tags, easily fits through the mounting hole on the sheath. This allows the knife to be worn like a necklace for concealed-carry options.
