Tuff clip alternatives?

Picked up a Tuff recently, but it doesn't have a clip.

Does anyone know of an alternate clip or what size screws the tuff uses? The military clip pattern looks close, but I haven't been able to check yet.

I did email Spyderco but not optimistic on them having a clip laying around.

Re: Spyderco 2019 Reveal Volume 3 Per Knife Center

The stretch has a different edge shape than the pm2. The stretch's edge is straight until the last third or so when it becomes a fairly pronounced belly.

A pm2 edge is almost the other way, maybe an inch by the choil is straight, and the rest of your edge is curving into a slight belly.

Re: Let's take a look inside my Police 4

Hmmmm......with the police 4 lw coming out I wonder what would happen if you switched the blades (assuming the can be)

And if it is a result of a galvanic reaction what if the washers were replaced with nylatron?

Anyone from or moved to Alaska?

I've been kicking this idea of trying to move out there around. Maybe this isn't the best place to ask, but I like the community here so maybe someone has answers. If you're from or have moved there, what are the actual struggles? Regrets? Little annoyances that make life difficult? What makes you w...

Hap40 vs zdp189 vs k390

I'm considering picking up an endura in hap40, but already have a police in k390 and haven't tried zdp at all. So I ask: If you have or had both, is the endura too close to the police that you find them to essentially overlap? And how do the steels compare in use or in theory? (Meaning in theory one...

Anyone prefer manual seats in a car?

Power seats annoy me. I'm in a place where leaning the seat back and taking a nap is not out of the question. Now I have a car with power seats and it's push the button and......wait.... Time to go? Push the button...and...wait... Silly topic and more just a random complaint than anything but still....

Re: COFFEE: Who Drinks The REAL Stuff? Gourmet Beans too?

Kind of curious, what methods of brewing does everyone prefer? I use a little glass pour over one mostly but I really want to try a siphon. Mostly because it looks neat.

Re: Why does tooling get destroyed?

It's all about eliminating waste. Tools, molds, dies, etc for a discontinued product aren't producing any value. Even if it doesn't take up much space, that's still space that could be used for something that is adding value.

Bbs pm2. I think I'm too attached to the blue and that if I part with it it'd be difficult to get another.

How many wharnecliffe spydies have there been?

The question came up elsewhere, and thought I'd ask here. I could think of these.

Yojimbo, ronin, dragonfly, delica, endura, salt 2, McBee, equilibrium, gb air, urban, centofante, spydiecard, dogtag folder, swick, and q ball.

More than I realized, but what are the others?
