Spydiechef + RGT Clip?

Postby ugaarguy » Mon Apr 30, 2018 6:50 pm

Has anyone tried the RGT milled Ti replacement for the wire clip on their Spydiechef? Thought? Anyone have pics of this combo? Thanks.

Just ordered one for mine. Hope it doesn’t ride too high or funny in the pocket.

Hi there, I have RGT clips on my Spydiechef, Techno and PITS, and they all fit very well. I think the clip styling matches the knives very well in finish and character. That said, these clips are bordering on ridiculously expensive! Two of the three here were offered as “blems” at about half the normal price. They’re the only game in town for these though so all the demand for an aftermarket wire clip is all for their taking! ;)

I really like the recessed screw. I wish more knives had clips like this.

Do you prefer this over the stock SpydieChef clip only for the appearance, or is there some functional benefit as well? I really like the stock clip but never saw a SpydieChef with an aftermarket clip before.

I love the RGT clip on the Caly as well. It is sturdy and just as sleek as the wire clip. It lacks a bit of the "mouth" that the factory wire clips have, but I have not had many difficulties getting it from the pocket with fat seams.

I was totally unaware of RGT until this thread.

Do they only sell on their own web site? Or are they available elsewhere?

There's a lot of "out of stock" stuff I see there that I'd be really interested in finding.

Nice! I'm happy I found this thread.

I just received a Spydiechef this week and its actually my first spyderco knife as well. I LOVE IT. Very good construction and I see why people say the Taichung factory has great F+F on knives.

My only complaint is the Wire Clip... Its not terrible... but its just not as sturdy as a normal clip. Non necessarily the tension, but I hate how its moves from side to side against the knife's scale and leaves ugly scrape marks.

These RGT clips seem like an excellent solution...... but for $65 bucks? daaaaamn. Thats a lot of bones for a clip.

I've seen them on the exchange occasionally, I actually have one somewhere in my parts drawer. I can't remember which knife I tried it on but didn't care for it for some reason, heck I can't even remember why now.

Radioactive and/or xceptnl (or anyone else who has them,) can you give an update as to how these clips have worked out for you since this thread? They look great but have they held up to you expectations? Its spendy for a clip at just over twice the price of MXG. Fom the photos in this thread and exploring RGTs site though they appear to be twice the quality.

I have one on my M390 PM2. I've been very happy with it. Durable, stylish, easy to slide in and out of the pocket.

I wish it was low riding, but that's pretty much my only complaint.

They’ve held up remarkably well and I definitely recommend them. Since those few above, I’ve added RGT clips onto my Slysz Bowie, Techno 2, Caly 3.5 SB, HH red UKPK, orange UKPK and my Mantra 2 (and possibly one or two I’ve missed) with some of his plain Ti ones, anodized ones, and regular and black Timascus ones (again taking full advantage of those “blems” he offers from time to time, they’re always pretty much perfect). Cheers, Radioactive :)

The pocket clip is the first thing to get blemished if you actually use the knife anyways (aside from the blade maybe), so if you can save money by getting a blem that’s ideal!

Any of you Spyderfolk that have the RGT wire clip replacement:
Is the hole in the underside on the end of the clip intended to be able to install a ball bearing like some other clips have?
That's what it looked like the first time I saw one of these clips. It doesn't mention it on the website & there is no way to contact to ask.
