I have since moved the knife to the right shoulder strap area where there are loops, zip tied the knife to the loops. Can't even tell I have the knife there...way more comfortable.
On a different note, I also have the Astral throwbag that stows in the chest area...nice to have it handy but it makes the vest super bulky in the chest area and since I mostly raft I've had some hard times getting back into a boat due to the chest bulkiness of carring the Astral bag...
