The main challange I faced when carring a knife is retention of the knife. I was always losing the knife. Then I noticed in a catalogue a Spiderco with a "carabiner" type of a clip. But not the type of clip that clips onto your pocket. This clip is designed to clip on to your belt loop, or on a key chain holder, for example. This clip will not slip off like the familiar clip on pocket knives. I bought a key chain holder at a car wash, attached one end to my belt and the other end to the carabiner on the knife. Then I dropped the knife into my jeans pocket. Problem solved.

How were you carrying your pocket knives before? Front pocket, back pocket, etc? We've never experienced that problem.

I typically carried the knife in my right back pocket, clipped. After losing several knives with them in that position, I then took a tip from Tonopah and clipped it behind me to my Levis under my belt, again on the right side. I lost a knife with it in that position too. Then I came across a Spiderco with a carabiner clip and realized that was the solution.

We've found that the right front pocket is good.

Problem for me in clipping the knife in the right front pocket is that when I plunge my right hand into the same pocket to fetch my keys, the knife gets in the way. With the knife on a key holder (the other end on my belt) I can pull the knife out quickly, and then pull out my keys. Works for me. And it will for you.

We don't have a caribeener on our knvies and also don't have the problem of getting keyes out of the right front pocket where the knife is kept.
