I carry a SOCP on me at at all times. It will ride in the original sheath slightly off center when I'm also carrying my pistol. When for whatever reason I am unable to carry a gun, I move my SOCP to my right (strong) side, also slightly off center. The original sheath works more than fine. The length of the dagger enables a really easy and smooth AIWB carry. I took the class with Greg back in 2011 and have been carrying it since. Although the dagger was not purpose built to sit AIWB, it does so without any issue.
Recently, Benchmade came out with the serrated single edged version. I picked one up due to varying laws from state to state in that regards. The non edged side is that in name only. Benchmade basically didn't polish it and then applied the coating.
You don't gotta love it. You just gotta do it.
I have the SOCP as well and it is easily concealed. My only concern with it is that the handle is quite thin and can twist in your hand. Also, I did not like the fact that you can not cut with it as it comes direct from Benchmade, easily rectified by sharpening the edges.
I've trained with nyeti. I've been in several classes with and chatted with Joe quite a bit. Two smart guys came together with a hell of an idea that was very well executed. I am a big fan of the HiTS and carry some version of it daily.
Initially I dismissed the SOCP after handling the BM version in a LGS. Since then I have considered trying one as a weak side pocket carry instead of a folder on those lower profile days.
Now I am really confused. I thought SouthNarc's blade is called a Clinch Pick.

Or just buy a cheap kitchen knife or folding Buck knife and stab 'em like a ghetto-pro.
Lot of desert out here.
Lot of holes in the desert.
Lot of problems buried in those holes.
I'm trying to decide between a Clinch Pick and an Izula II ... Things that I think would matter most to me are ease of concealment, handle length and depth of the finger groove behind the blade.
And, yeah, I'll probably end up with both LOL.
