I finally put the clip on and plain edged and sheeps footed the blade. 

Thanks for the pictures Bob!    This mod makes the spirit 100X times better for me since I wouldn't carry it without the clip.

Cool! How'd it go for you Bill? Any difficulties?

Besides destroying the first clip completely?     Nope, went off without a hitch....... :D

I drilled the first hole just low enough to allow a little wobble.    I couldn't have that so I decided I's gonna fix 'er good.

2 vices, 2 hammers, channel locks, vice grips, a MAPPgas torch and lots of swearing all played their part in what followed.

It was a slaughter.    Well, more of a Comedy of Errors perhaps.

Its amazing how tough it is to bend 1/16 of an inch of hardened stainless over 90 degrees.

So the first clip went into the scrap metal pile and my edc charge is floating around the bottom of my pocket now.

BUT!!!    My Spirit is pimped and I'm loving it.

I wish more manufacturers would put clips on multi-tools. My 3 favorite multi-tools of all time are my Spirit with a clip(thanks again J-sews), my Leatherman Sideclip which my ex-wife took and my Leatherman Kick that I had with a clip. Although it was pretty bulky for no more tools than it had on it.

I'm sure there's a lot of people out there like me who don't like a bunch of crap hanging on their belt. When I'm in shorts most of the time I don't even have a belt on.

Seems like such a clear and obvious advantage to clip the Spirit.....makes me wonder why Victorinox doesn't offer this option themselves?

I want one too.  What will it take?.......

What will it take? It will take a WHOLE LOT of sucking up to Def, that's what!

I'm donating the Spirit (brand new, only taken out of the clam pack to have the clip added) to Multitool.org, with the suggestion to Def that he offer it up as the next free contest giveaway.

(of course, knowing Def, he might just decide to keep it for himself......) ;)

My question is where did this Spirit get to??   ::)

All right  - ordering the parts in the AM and looking forward to this mod.

Thanx for all the tips and advice.

email sent to KnifeKits to get the part # for the s/s Torx screw to attach the pocket clip.


Wait, wait, wait, wait ..... guess they are not there at 2AM in the morning................. dah



Anyone else interested in doing this mod wait a day or two and I will order the parts in a group purchase to have on hand when and if you decide to do this mod.

First order for clips is in, waiting on the screws before we can start.

ALL the pocket clips I ordered have been spoken for, I have no more.

Some guys here have trimmed off the protruding bit of the scissors sprint to allow it to open wider, if that's what you're asking about.

That's nice work guys  :tu: I really like the idea of a clip, but not sure about modding the serrations as I quite like them now. Well done  :)

When i carry a second knife in addition to the Spirit i don't mind the serrations.
But when its carried by itself i really miss the classic spearpoint.
I modded the shape of the blade on my "My First Victorinox Plus" without any problems.

It was originally a blunt pointed butter knife shaped blade, (figured i try a non SAK looking blade pattern, lol).
I made the panels thin as possible and wanted the tops of the pins visible. Its just a hair thicker than my Vic Alox Lumberjacks.
 
Anybody here do any extreme Spirit mods?

I'm think of trying the clip mod, spearpoint mod, scissor mod.
come to think of it my buddy has a small sandblaster, maybe i'll use it to add a bit of texture to the "arms" of the spirit, as i sometimes find it very slippery.

That wood scaled lumberjack (if I can call it that) is great.  Superb blade shape you got.  :salute:

Thanks guys!
I think the "my first Victorinox" series are a great bargain really. Mod the blade and you have a neat lean little knife!
And you get a neck lanyard and chain lanyard packaged with it as well.
Great platform for an 84mm mod as well.
I recently fluked into an 84mm climber (with scissors) on ebay so then i bought another "my First Vic plus" to use to combine together and make a 84mm Huntsman.
That will be my first really serious SAK mod.
Still waiting for both knives to get here though,lol.

The Huntsman sounds cool  8).  The most I've done was a 3 layer Alumnus (Climber with file instead of the small blade).  I'm not sure just how much bulk you are saving in a 4 layer 84mm over the 91mm version however, as it still ends up quite wide.  Post pics and opinions as soon as it's done though.  :tu:
