    Can I get a rundown from everyone on how they carry their smalls -- in the pocket, clipped to the pocket or waistband, or in a sheath?

    Also...if you wouldn't mind elaborating some. Why you carry it the way you do or maybe you carried it one way and then changed. If you use a sheath, which one and what type.

    Well, I carry the small plain jane in a horizontal leather sheath as I find that easier to draw without much fuss.

    The wood inlay I carry in a vertical style leather sheath, as it protects the inlay better, I know that some people have had some bad bumps if they carried it horizontal so now I direct people to opt for vertical sheaths for both sizes of the wood inlays or decorated models...

    I carry the large wood inlay clipped in my right front pocket, makes it so I can also carry one on the belt...;)

    I carry mine loose in the pocket, or in one of Gary's canted sheaths.
    In the pocket when I'm wearing a fixed blade on the right hip, in the sheath when I'm not.

    Once I took the clip off, and used it some, I didn't want to put the clip back on. Only knives I own that wear a clip are my two "primary" carry folders.

    the clip !

    I really enjoy the new clip on the little sebenza.

    You can perform very fast and natural draws.

    Clipless, so loose in my pockets.

    I took the clip off since I wear slacks to work, and didn't want the clip to scuff the clothes. And, more importantly, since I have a small classic, I found out that it was >much< easier to open with the clip removed...

    In the office I carry a small plain in my pocket.

    At home and out of the office I carry it clipped to my pocket. I also find it very easy to draw from the clipped position.

    Wow...so far a lot more people carry it loose in the pocket than I expected. Did all of you buy the little clip hole filler? So far thanks... this is exactly the info I was looking for. Keep it coming.

    I would venture to say the Chris Reeve Forumites are the most helpful on the site (hey... a little sucking up never hurt anyone). Whenever someone asks for a pic or info the replies come flying fast. Check out the thread about the clip hole filler -- that was amazing, a close up pic of the thing just like that.

    Keep the info coming...JT

    I carry mine clipped, in one of Gary's sheaths or in one of my own sheaths. I also have several neck sheaths for my smalls as well.

    Hey Gary, got the Mnandi today.... wooohooo. Love that clip but I need a nice canted one in dark brown leather too..

    NO CLIP !!!

    I have the filler in both small classic and small wood inlay.

    Small classic = office carry in CRK leather pouch, in pocket.

    Small wood inlay = CRK pouch in shirt pocket or in G2 belt sheath.

    I carry my small classic in the leather pouch that you can get from Chris. I also bought the clip insert. I just put the whole deal in my pocket and let it go. I find it to be a really comfortable way of carring it.

    I carry mine clipped in my pocket. Only had her for almost 2 weeks now and still getting used to the tip up. The small is not big enough for me where I would want it in a belt sheath. It is small enough though to just be carried loose in the pocket.

    I have a small line drive model that rides in a G2 vertical canted sheath. IMO, if you try one of these sheaths, you'll never use the clip again....

    Belt sheath or slip sheath in the pocket, sometimes both.

    I took the clip off of my small Trailing Moon, and carry it in the leather pocket sheath.

    One of the reasons I chose the sebenza is the great pocket clip. I have carried all my knives with a pocket clip for as long as I can remember now. Before clips I lost too many knives.

    The clip on the large and small sebenzas is located perfectly. I do not notice it when in use. I guess I am so use to a clip on my pocket knife that it does not register.

    I understand individual tast and those who choose to carry with the clip removed, however, my clip stays in use. It rounds out the perfect knife.
