The Skallywag Gladium is another great option for a low cost, yet quality blade to have on your body for personal defense or EDC. I like the fact that this is a fixed blade karambit style blade that can be deployed quickly to deal with a threat.
The sheath that comes with the Gladium is a basic kydex sheath that can be worn as a neck knife. There are a few grommet holes in the sheath allowing you to get creative with mounting options. I have ordered a Gladium and am looking forward to carrying it as my daily carry. I’m going to try to play around with some mounting option to wear it inside the waistband. Once I get my blade (it’s on order!) and figure out how I’m going to run the blade, I’ll write a follow up article explaining everything in detail.
Until then head on over the Skallywag Tactical and pick up your Gladium today! For $30 you can’t go wrong with this bad-ass chunk of steel.
