Double cuff case, actually.

The knives are a good story. I originally had one SOG Trident. I managed to leave it in a locker at the jail one night, and it was gone when I went back an hour later. I bought another one (and they're not cheap!) and promptly lost it by leaving it at the jail as well. I finally gave up and bought a much cheaper CRKT. On a whim, I asked (fancy that) one of the matrons one night and she said that she thought that they had ONE of them...they did. Same matron called me two weeks later to tell me that she had found the second one. Now the SOGs ride in my cargo pockets and the CRKT in my shirt pocket.

Hell, I have four blades on me at any one time. Boss thinks I'm a 'knife nut'. Uh yeah. Right. "Want to see the new one boss??"

There is a Deputy in the neighboring county that carries 7 blades when he is on duty and 4 when he is off. He has a couple Hideaway Knives on top of a KA-BAR TDI, and folders

I fully believe in having options, but I also believe that having too many can cause a person to freeze, trying to decide which one to take.

Primary on-the-belt gun
Backup gun, accessible with both hands
"Working" knife, for actually cutting things, in a comfortable spot
Self Defense knife, accessible with both hands
Baton, accessible with both hands

Can't really fault people for being prepared, but at some point you are just weighing yourself down and making yourself more cumbersome. I can carry all of this, plus a kubaton, run with ease, and jump up and down without making any noise (jingling/clanking). I call that a pretty good compromise.

7 knives? What, you guys work in Beverly Hills or something? We carry 1 sword, 1 machete, and 2 Kukris along with 2 boot knives, 4 pocket knives, 1 necklace knife, 3 throwing darts on each wrist, and a pocket full of throwing stars.

Did I mention I am a tactical ninja?

lol-no believe it or not it's a suburban department in the midwest....I guess he used to work out on the east coast and some guy diced him up pretty good, so now he doesn't want to be without an option at every position he could wind up in.

Some guy diced him up so he carries 7 knives so he can slice and dice back equally? Yeah, that'll look good on the evening news. Cop and suspect engage in a westside story knife fight in the alley.

P.S. I think you labeled your "leather" and "nylon" pictures backwards. And I still hate you.

For you guys that wear suspenders, how often do you hear of suspects using them against you in a fight?

Never. They're also designed to break away if pulled on...haven't tested that out, though.

One of the maybe 3 officers that wear them on the department I work for got into it last summer at a barfight and a drunk tried to grab him and they broke away (as designed to) and the drunk fell straight on his ass in front of the backup squad rolling up.

Added Magpul Rangers to the G34 mags, a Magpul 20 round PMAG with Ranger plate in a custom Deployment Solutions mag holder and a Serpa X26 holster.

This is my final setup unless I ever get my department to approve Springer 1911's.
