I got a belt to hold up my pants, and belt loops to hold up my belt. I don’t know who is the real hero.
- best wishes, Jazz.

I carry my hawkbill ladybug salt with a fob/lanyard either loose in my pocket or in the watch pocket of my jeans. Makes it easy to retrieve and it didn't come with a clip.

I also suffer from Noassatall disease. I'm thinking about starting a support group.
I too suffer from this... I found a support group. They’re called belts :D

For me it's suspenders. :o :D

My Stainless harpy goes in my back right pocket. No clip. Blade down with hinge in line with thumb.

For me, the Spyderco Kiwi makes the most sense for clipless, bottom-of-the-pocket carry.

When I discovered Spyderco back in '03, I'd been carrying a knife in my left back pocket for 50 years.

I always wonder, isn't that uncomfortable to sit on? Does it lay horizontal at the pocket's bottom?
I thought the same when people said the carried a military in the right back pocket.
I've carried a Millie clipped to my back right pocket and it was to the side of my sit bones, not uncomfortable at all.

I used to carry every Spyderco clipless because I thought the ergonomics were better. I'd even carry a Military or Manix (The REAL Manix, the beefy C95 lockback) clipless :eek:

One thing that helped make this more comfortable was to carry a fairly thick wallet, and place the knife vertical to the side of it (The side closest to my hip). More comfortable than loose front pocket carry, but I didn't sit on it either like if I carried loose in my back pocket.

I want the micarta of my Crucarta Shaman to darken evenly, so I removed the clip and let it ride in the bottom of my pocket.

I've also been not clipping most knives because the mouths of my pockets are getting worn out. Smooth G10, Ti, and CF don't eat pockets, so those still get clipped regularly.

Whenever I carry my Dragonfly or Co-Pilot, it's clipless in the bottom of my pocket. They're small enough that it's not a bother if they don't ride perfectly vertical.

I have a blog!
