Have been trying to sell my Zirikote-wood-scale Millie for quite some time now, but just can´t find a buyer.
So I figured, I´ll start to carry it myself again, and "mod" it a bit more to my preferences
One thing I don´t like about the Millie, is the tip down carry. Now I am thinking about mounting the clip in tip up position, which would also give me the opportunity to create a rather shallow
carry (I don´t like "deep" carry in larger knives at all, but want a good amount sticking out of the pocket and less IN the pocket)
I´d do this by just mounting the clip using regular wood screws and maybe some glue.
On my Millie it very much looks like as if the screws are only attached into the wood anyway (and not into the metal of the liner), but I can´t quite see it and don´t want to disassemble the knife.
- How is this on the G10 Millie (I got my wood scale Millie used as it is, never owned a regular G10 model)?
- And has anyone ever mounted a pocket clip on a wooden handle by just using wood screws? If so, any issues?
I´d appreciate any input!
