Another cool mod would be to have a reinforced horizontal slit next to your pocket so the whole knife can be dropped down into it, with just the clip riding outside your clothing.
Would you want the top of the knife "hiding" as well? Assuming it didn't have a low ride clip of some sort?
Tom, all my knives except my Lefty Millie are fitted with either aftermarket deep carry clips or low riding wire clips - so yes, the whole knife would pretty much be hidden inside your clothing.
I suppose a small square of fabric sewed inside the pants/jeans would be a good way of also reinforcing the slit. If you had two slits, one above the other, similar to what you described earlier, you could also have most of the bottom of the pocket clip tucked away and hidden as well, if that was something you wanted.
I kind of stumbled across this idea when a favourite pair of hiking pants developed a small tear just above my left pocket. Sometimes when going to replace my knife in my pocket, it would instead go into the hole and clip onto the top of the tear. I realised it was a pretty cool way of actually having your pocket completely clear for other things, yet still having the same accessibility to your pocket knife.
