The first thing I did when I got mine was rig it for left hand carry... it's been in my Left/Front pocket for 3 weeks as of the 19th...
The sides come about 1/2 way up the hollow grind, and I was worried about the look at first, but I haven't had any problems. It stays closed(even when tossed on the belt for easier access when biking), even it I brush up against it.
The tip on mine makes contact with the inside of the handle.
