Where to Hide Blades – 6 Common Places to Conceal Carry a Knife

Where to Hide Blades

My favorite fictional heroes carried knives. When villains appeared and the need arose blades would, as if by magic, materialize into the hero’s hands. Depending on the threat, a knife would make it into the heart or hand of the villain with expert precision. As a child, I was a big fan of these heroes and their concealed bad ass ways to handle trouble. I wanted to be just like them when I grew up.

It was an epic day when my dad brought home a set of throwing knives someone gave him. My brother, sister, neighbor, and I were so excited to be blade masters. We made bulls-eye targets out of hay bales, pallets, and boxes. The blade of the knife was a little longer than my eight-year-old hand. They hadn’t been sharpened, so we had to throw them pretty hard to get the blade to sink into the targets. If the knife was not thrown hard enough it would bounce off the target which was definitely not very cool or satisfying. I realized that many hours of practice would be needed before I could become a knife-wielding hero. It also occurred to me that I had no idea where to hide blades for quick and easy access. Since then, I pay close attention to when an author mentions where the hero was concealing their knife. Below are 6 of the most common places where they would hide a blade.
