I am legitimately downloading photo shop to my backup computer (work one crashed) so I can try to put a PM2 into a suit for you! LOL.RLDubbya wrote:I've never seen a PM2 wearing a suit. Pics or it didn't happen.
Not actually sure, but I literally clip it on them every single day (obviously I rotate suits), but nothing, not even a pull...ohcyclist wrote:I wear a suit quite a bit and would not clip a PM2 on the pants. It will kill the pants quickly.
How has the native not done the same?
I normally clip my knives to the inside of my waistband when wearing a suit, saves the pocket and is less visible. The G10 on the PM2 is pretty grabby when new and will tear up the fabric so if you want to save your suit and wear a PM2 I'd recommend lightly wetsanding the G10 with wet and dry sandpaper until it feels a bit smoother.ero2 wrote:Not actually sure, but I literally clip it on them every single day (obviously I rotate suits), but nothing, not even a pull...ohcyclist wrote:I wear a suit quite a bit and would not clip a PM2 on the pants.

I'm actually thinking the solution is to not clip anything to the pants, but in the jacket pocket, which would alleviate having to go with a specific blade for my suit.
I think my problem really is that I want one knife as both my suit knife and my "do everything else under the sun" knife...and that probably isn't the best option. Realistically, listening to everyone and having one for after hours/the weekend or my bag, and one that's extremely subtle in pocket, is where the happy medium will be.Evil D wrote:This feels like one of those "tell me what I want to hear" questions lol. Your best bet is to get one with smooth CF scales but even then the clip is going to wear on the fabric over time. You could loosen the clip some but then you run the risk if losing it. I couldn't carry a knife this large and heavy loose in a suit pants pocket, it would flop around everywhere. If you're really determined to make it happen maybe take some pants to a tailor and have some extra fabric seem to the outside of the pocket where the knife clips. Maybe they can do it nice enough and match the fabric so it isn't an eyesore. Another option may be carrying it in your waste band or if you always wear a suit jacket maybe have a really nice leather sheath made and carry it on your belt.

Keeping in mind that I'm not a PM2 fan at this time*, I would suggest looking at a Southard, in all black. I think that knife will be more gentle on fabrics; it will be better looking; and it will give you plenty of blade. For my tastes, the Southard is one of the nicest dress knives I've seen.ero2 wrote:We talked pretty extensively about what route I should go in another thread, but after handling my buddies PM2 today (I've carried a Native in my suit pants pocket for a year. Not in pocket, but clipped.) I don't know how I can't get one...I'm not worried at all about the size to be honest, but I am worried about it destroying my expensive dress pants. Anyone carry a PM2 and wear a suit daily? Did you replace the G10?
Am I truly making a bad call carrying that "large" of a knife wearing a suit in a professional environment daily?
Thoughts oh Spydie friends? Sorry for my insanity, perhaps SAS (Spyderco Acquisition Syndrome) has truly taken over and I'm over analyzing everything, lol.
(Tempted to order a Caly 3.5 from Amazon, but don't love CF look...)
