I made a shallow carry pocket clip for my K390 Urban.

It was difficult to remove the Urban from my pocket due to pinching my pocket material with the deep carry clip. Now I can pinch above the pocket to pull up and out. Much better!!!

Recently bought a heavily used CF ZDP-189; the tip was showing above the scales. Switched it out with my HAP40 user blade and the results are below... more of a Jester-like profile :spyder:

Nice idea. I hate how when I grab the deep carry clips, my finger pressure on the clip makes it hold on for dear life. UKPK’s and Urbans do this to me.

I'm glad you like it! :)

If you're interested in doing the same, I used 1/16" stainless steel welding filler metal (316L in this case but 308, etc. would work too). It took a few tries to get the shape I wanted and consistent bends, but the effort and result are totally worth it.

Tired of waiting for sprint run of blue Delica with plain black blade, so I had to mix it myself.
That looks great!

Nice! I’d love an orange-handled pac-Salt. Love the clips too. Did you polish the one on the spyderhawk, or was it like that after stripping paint?

It was a dull gray after stripping almost a bead blast. I just finished putting a satin finish on everything. Took it apart and satin finished the black rings in the pivot too. Gotta figure out how to polish the slots in the barrel screws.

I didn't polish the back of the clip

My user para has the scales of my elmax sprint. The black and the dirty od green is just such a pretty combo. :D

Thanks Jazz. I do wish i got some extra black screws around that would make him ever nicer. :o Maybe Sal can be inspired to make a sprint run with these colors? :D

I keep tweaking this thing, not sure what it is about it, but it just doesn’t get as much pocket time as it deserves? Tix a lot of boxes but just lacks something, not sure what though...
