A note on sheath orientation.

- Wharncliffes and Tantos are set up with the sharp edge facing backwards on the side of the body of the selected orientation, and the grips facing in the same direction

- Pikals are set up with the blade facing backwards but the grip facing forward, as it is meant to be used with the blade towards you with your thumb over the butt of the knife.

- DCC and Ulticlips are mounted on the outside of the sheath so that the sheath is oriented inside the waistband or inside the pocket.

- Index Ultimate Belt Attachments are mounted on the inside of the sheath so that it can be used on the outside of a belt.
