    I've got an older spyderco that had the frn molded clip, which broke. I've been just using it as my toolbox knife so the missing clip isn't a huge deal, but I was wondering if anyone has any experience repairing them? It's pinned not screw together too, so I figure I'm SOL but - no harm in asking!

    David, you can buy a metal clip from Spyderco and do it yourself. It comes with self-tapping screws. If you order one, be sure to tell them that it is for this application so you will get the right clip and screws. You may have to Dremel or file away the remnants of the old FRN clip in order to get a flat surface. Its been a while, but I think it cost in the $10 - $12 range.

    When I sent my Merlin back to them years ago they just ground off the FRN nub and screwed a metal clip onto it.

    When my red Endura broke it's clip I just did it myself.
