Hey Patrick. Good to be back
Unfortunately not for long. I found myself with a few free minutes between projects last week and browsed the forum for the first time in a long while. After catching up on RamZars compendium and seeing this one on deck, I couldn't resist.
I have had the issue for years now of wire clips arriving strong only to get bent out of shape soon thereafter. Like yours, mine is also very stiff, tight to the scale, and appears to be securely nestled in the G10 slots. I have been burned by this before. Not sure if it's my pants, how I draw or clip back in, or just my day-to-day activities that do it, but the wire clips always become a never ending battle to get snug again. I will have to tighten the S30V Lil' Native after about every 3 or 4 days carry. Its gotten to the point that the only wire clips I have in my collection anymore are the Autonomy & Assist. Autonomy lives in my snowboarding pack and the Assist is in my sunglasses holder in my truck, so neither gets clip use.
Secondary to providing superior pocket clipping, I just plain think the spoon looks better on most knives. Hopefully this line is strong enough one day to warrant both clip types on the comp and lockback.
