The leather removable dangler allows your knife sheath to ride lower than your hip belt and slightly increase it's mobility. Not everyone prefers a dangler, but if you find that your backpacking hip belt rests on top of your knife handle/sheath, you might want to use a dangler so that the knife clears your backpack's hip belt.
Our danglers' d-ring has a screw-in pin to assist in removal. The internal diameter of the d-ring is approximately 15/16 inches (it can be replaced with a larger diameter d-ring afterwards). The dangler comes grooved with burnished and painted edges. Made in our shop from the same 7-8 oz American leather as our sheaths.
