    Add Pocket clip to opinel


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I was wondering if anyone knew how to put a pocket clip on an Opinel without drilling any (more) holes in it. What should i do. As you can see from the pic I've already drilled a lanyard hole in it and switched it from clip point to drop point with a file and some sandpaper. It looks pretty sweet, but i still would like a pocket clip. Any advice would help.

    Search for Nite Ize hip clip, or pocket clip. They use a really good adhesive that some folks have used with success.

    These pics are from another site (linked above the first pic below), showing the clip mod done by someone else (I'm envious). I'd seen 'em a while back, and always thought it to be a great idea.

    It would be easy to drill out a pair of holes. How does the clip stay in place, epoxy?

    Not sure which clip you're referring to. If referring to the wire clip pictured above, I'd assume epoxy would hold it, and more easily if the ends of the wire go fairly deep into the wood.

    Talking about the nite ize clip I've used on for a while on one of my multis and its worked well. There is also a thing called a draw clip that is normally used for guns that would work well. Many people have used them on knives and multis.

    Adding pocket clips is not in the Traditional repertoire. Moving to Maintenance.

    if you dont want to drill more holes, there are clips that attach to lanyards like how pocket watches were attached. i havent seen this in a while and don't know who sells that, but it exists. the knife will hang in your pocket from a short lanyard. it looks ugly but it works.

    i have seen these pics before. if i can't find a non-permanent clip idea i probably go with this.

    yep exactly this without the chain, attached to a very short paracord lanyard. no need to drill anything as you already have a lanyard hole.

    Do a search for "P7 Suspension Clip". They're not exactly cheap but they come highly recommended by the EDC crowd (AKA batbelt crowd).
