Hey guys, I just wanna say that i've become quite fond of knives about 2 years ago. It all started with a Spyderco Delica that I bought from a local knife shop. After researching, I paid way to much for it and started to search up all about Spydercos and wanted another knife at a good deal so I wouldn't feel beaten. I ended up buying a black Dragonfly FRN from Ebay. It was and is a great little knife! I loved it because I could put it in the smaller interior "pocket watch" in my right pocket of my jeans. However, sometimes it binds against my leather belt and doesn't feel comfortable if I'm sitting around.
Fast forward, 2 years, I've branched out to different brands, but always came back to my first love... Spyderco. I don't know what it is and I can't explain it, but it just seems like Spyderco "gets it" ... you see Sal posting regularly, he responds to fans and customers and he even implements our ideas and turns them into a reality.
Over the past 2 years, I've collected over 50 knifes and it's quite weird but the Spyderco Ladybug is by far one of my most used knives. I carry a lot of stuff in my pockets and even for how small the Ladybug is , it sometimes makes my pocket a little uncomfortable by poking me. I've tried to use a Lanyard for my lady bug and tried to put it in the pocket watch, but I simply do not like to use Lanyards... I don't wanna bring my attention to pockets even though its such a "dinky" knife.
Anyways, I thought it would be a good idea to put a pocket clip on a Manbug! I took my one of my Dragonflies clip & hardware to attach it to the Lanyard hole to get an idea how it would look and feel (although it doesn't fit because it needs grooves for the clip to mold into the FRN) It's like its not there, but yet a Manbug will do 99% of the chores I need it to do on a daily basis. I was just wondering, how hard would it to put a clip on a manbug? Is there a way that you guys could? Does Spyderco do any type of custom work? Has this ever been thought of?
I know this might not be everyones cup of tea, but I personally would love to see it happen!

Sometimes I have so much crap in my regular pockets it makes it tough to whip out the Manbug, and its near impossible to do so when you are sitting down. I figure a clipped Manbug would be accessible no matter what.
