So is the bear claw "legal" for permitted river trips requiring a river knife as part of the essential safety gear? I seem to recall years ago that the blade on the bear claw was too short. Or is my memory just a bit hazy.

I'd use the zip ties too

I always did. The belt clip on my sheath never felt very secure, so I would lash the sheath thru the side slots to the knife attachment on the PFD.

I keep my Bearclaw on the left shoulder of my Astral pfd. I didn't like how it sits when attached to the lash tab so sewed it to the shoulder strap right at collar bone level. It's almost impossible for it to be dragged out of the sheath, easily accessible and it wont snag if I go under something feet first (it just flips up out of the way). I've always put my knife on my shoulder strap, It seems like it's a better place for it, It's not in front of you waiting to be dragged out the first time you climb back into a raft, and most importantly my hand naturally goes there if I put my arm across my chest.
