Unfortunately it's pretty bad! I usually wear cargo shorts year round and it's a TWO HANDER for sure. It gets caught every time on the cutout and stops dead 60 % into the clip! The only clothing that worked well one handed was a North Face windbreaker my wife was using.bwunger wrote: ↑Fri Mar 29, 2019 10:12 pmI was coming on here to make the exact same post as the OP. It's such a great knife that I really want to like but I'm really close to returning it because the clip is so bad. I'll try it on a few more pants tomorrow. Maybe this pair is especially bad and maybe I can resend the clip but if it doesn't get better this one may be going back.
It doesn't seem to cause any issues being on the lock bar otherwise. It's just that darn cutout and the really low clearance under the clip. They need more clearance and should have put the cutout on the inside.
I may give Spyderco a call on Monday to see what my options are. I'm seriously contemplating whether I could live with this knife sans clip. And just let it ride in the bottom of my pocket. Maybe I could commission a custom clip?
Really bummed as the Drunken is stunning and a joy in the hand with great action. The grind is hacked on our sample too
