More wire clips. Don't have to be deep carry, any flavor will do, just more wire clips.
So many here love the wire clips, but I just don’t see the appeal. I like the look of the hourglass clip with the Spyderco logo, I think it completes the look of the knife. I haven’t owned a knife with a wire clip, so maybe there’s something that I’m missing?
It isn't an aesthetic thing for me, it is a function thing. Hourglass clips are great at holding knives in the pocket but they can create hot spots. They also can scratch the heck out of things you happen to lean up against.
Sometime ago I was carrying my Delica, my arms were full and an elderly person accidentally bumped me into my car with their door. It was no biggy, I just sort of slumped against the side. No biggy except the three deep scratches about four inches long in the side of my car from the three raised "points" on the clip.
I never obsessed over the clip scratching things over the years but I was conscious of it and would be careful when working on a vehicle, etc. But accidents do happen.
So, those are my primary reasons for preferring the wire clip. Well, and I think they look better.
