Trying something different for pocket carry...
« on: January 07, 2019, 11:03:08 AM »
This new JE Made Knife has a “lanyard” hole. The hole is actually there to insert a tool during assembly/disassembly to take pressure off the spring to allow the rear Chicago screw barrel to be removed/replaced.

I am using it to attach a plastic pocket clip.   I used paracord like a rivet. I melted and pancaked each end to keep it from coming thru.

Just messing around. Will see how it holds up. I did not want to make a nice lanyard because it would need cut off or untied if I ever wanted to take the knife apart.

I first tried knots but wasn’t happy.

What do you think??  :-)

Interesting... hmm, isn't that a little bit too rigid when you sit down?

I don’t think it will be, but I’ll find out late this afternoon when I get up for work. I’m in PJs now so couldn’t test it yet.

It’s basically just a dangler. I’m using the paracord instead of a split ring as on a SAK.

It’s an experiment. See how it goes.

On a side note, I used the washer you sent me in my Boker last night. Helped a lot. I was just using the lanyard ring which was a tad too thick.  Thanks again for the parts!!

Unique idea for a clip.  :tu:
I would be afraid the end of the para cord will eventually come loose. Then as you pull the knife out it will find it's way to a concrete floor.  :ahhh
I would feel more comfortable with a loop, more like a regular dangler.

I thought the same thing when I saw it.........it is a cool idea, but I would keep a close watch on the end of the para cord.
