Carrying a Clip-Knife

I carry a knife most of the time. About the only time you cannot find one on me is late in the evening when I’m wearing sweats or pajama pants. Don’t laugh because I wear pajama pants, you do it too whether you admit it or not. And, don’t laugh because on occasion I have actually worn a clip-knife with my pajama pants.

The knife I carry generally varies because I am often testing one knife or the other. However, the knife I find myself carrying most often is a Spyderco Stretch. At any rate, most jeans or cargo type pants are not designed for carrying a clip-knife because the pocket entry is set at an angle. Not so with Mountain Khakis’ pants; the entry to their front pockets has a neat shelf that is parallel to the earth. It makes for a great place to clip your clip-knife.

Now, if we could just get Mountain Khakis to make pajama pants…

    I carry folders too, and mostly they are things like the Spyderco Delicia that fall into the “cheap and cheerful” category. It is too easy to lose a custom knife to karma, or some officious functionary of the state…jim
