Most of the Lum Chinese Folders I've seen come with the clip positioned for tip up carry. This type of carry would seem most comfortable to me.
Like you said, when I first saw the Folder I thouhght, "Man, that is one knife I will never buy."
However, once bitten by a Spydie Virus, you know what happens....
I haven't yet seen a Folder that was positioned for tip down carry, so I really can't comment on that method. Maybe the "Folder King" could better answer that one. <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle> [ Yes, Clay, I'm looking at you. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle> ]
One heck of a knife, I will admit.
