I'll try and get a pic up when I get home, but I retrofitted mine with a deep-carry flip that puts the entire knife in my pocket. Look at http://www.usaknifemaker.com for their foldover, deepcarry clips as these will fit the exsisting holes on the Vallotton.DeathBySnooSnoo wrote:I really like mine a lot, though it's not one that I carry or use too much. I love the thickness of the handle and how straight it is. I prefer that by far to a lot of really weird "ergonomic" handles, which I tend to mostly find are anything but.
I love the thick blade and the grind (though mine is a bit too obtuse).
I love the solid and heavy feel of it a lot too.
However, I hate the clip. First thing I did was take it off and the knife looks about 100 times better. I think that it needs a short deep carry clip that doesn't obscure the really great looks of the knife. Sadly these don't fit Spyderco knives, but this clip would be very very perfect on the Valloton I think http://www.knifekits.com/vcom/index.php ... 60_101_379
Do you have a direct link? I can't find them on that site.

Love the Valloton!
Crappy pics but I see the changes you made and they are pretty good. Just wish that it was possible to get a proper black clip for it.cutter17 wrote:Oh, I don't like the long length either, and that is why I cut them down to a total length of 1 1/4" for this knife. I always cover my clips with black 3M Stair Step tape, so there is only a very small clip footprint to be seen. Being made of titanium, a handheld torch (butane fuel type) will allow you to heat and bend, while my Dremel allows me to reshape the end of the clip back to a semi-circle. The same torch allows you to annodize the clip and with practice you can acheive a clip of motteled blues/violets/ and some gold, that don't look bad, but I still like the 3M product better!
Here's a couple really bad pics;
Wow, very nice of you. I will PM you.cutter17 wrote:Hey Snoo, tell you what. Email me a shipping address and I will send you the other clip I took off, before putting the new one on the other night. The one I took off is a foldover from the USA knifemaker place, it is thinner of the three left, that I did not link too, but mentioned. It has been done the exact same way as this one. Use it, toss it, whichever way you want to do it, but it will give you an idea, and you may end up liking it! I'll cover it with the #M tape, and send you some extra tape, in case you want to take the original tape off and have the titanium showing. Anyway, let me know, and if you want it I'll get it mailed out tomorrow or Friday.
