Would the single wire clip still be attached with screws or by another method? Either way, this sounds very good.sal wrote:I have a design for a single wire, but mfr is difficult, so it's been "oh hold" a number of times.

IMVHO I don't think Sal & Co would let the original Manbug be dropped from the lineup... too much tradition, including its place in the Super Blue, ZDP-189, and HAP40 runs. I think the bolstered G-10 version has been popular -- some people really love it, so maybe a "Clipbug" could just be another separate variant. Or maybe the design would be altered enough for it to be a whole different model. It's pretty clear that a lot of people don't want anybody messing with their ManbugsDoc Dan wrote:I still don't like it. Don't mess with my favorite little knife.
I'm with you on this one Doc!Doc Dan wrote:I still don't like it. Don't mess with my favorite little knife.
I did it, using a very narrow file to recess the clip wires on either side of the lanyard hole. (You can see the end of the file in the pic in my post above.) I think it worked well, but I was impatient and got a little sloppy filing the slots. I had done the same thing to my Super Blue Dragonfly so it would ride lower in my shirt pocket. I found that, for my usual uses, the Manbug is a little small and I switched back to the Dragonfly. Ideally, I'd like to have something between the two in size (just for shirt pocket use -- I think the D-fly is perfect as is for other uses). Also, if I decide to use the Manbug routinely with the clip, I'll grind a small smooth area where it contacts the scale so it won't be overly grippy on my pocket.cabfrank wrote:I was thinking about putting a Dragonfly clip on a Manbug, looked into it a bit, and found this thread. How has it worked for those of you that tried it? I don't want to mess up a really nice little knife. I've certainly broken things that needed no fixing enough times.
