Below are photos showing all the following applications. First, a few thoughts on each:
The form factor of the HideAway makes it ultra-concealable. You have all the blade length found in other common self-defense knives, but in a much smaller package.
I keep 6 HideAways: One on my key chain, one behind my ID badge, one on neck / belt combo sheath, and one on the side of my nightstand, one in my car, and my titanium HideAway in the shower.
|1. On a key chain.|
Key chain carry is one method that someone who is not used to on-body carry of a defensive weapon can more easily accept. Plus you have the extra benefit of it always being there, very close by, when you are walking to your car with your keys in your hand. HideAway key chain carry is independent of what you are wearing, and dependent on having your keys close by. If a situation's threat level increased, the HideAway can be "worn" with almost complete dexterity of fingers for unlocking a car door, etc. The HideAway weighs 1 ounce.
|2. Neck knife with a Photon microlight attachment|
Good combo for an emergency situation
|3. Behind an ID badge|
Your photo ID badge is in front, and the sheathed HideAway is behind it.
|4. On a belt|
The drawstroke mechanics of drawing a HideAway from belt carry will be familiar to those used to drawing a gun from belt carry.
|5. While holding a flashlight|
You can hold something else like a flashlight in your hand, or have it free to block a blow or balance yourself.
|6. Paratrooper gear|
Example of when you need a knife, but dropping one would be a really bad thing.
|Please send me your photos! There are probably more specific applications for people who need to have other things in their hand yet would also find a knife handy!|
