    Fellow Knife Knuts,
    I have a new Kershaw Grinder 1319B5 ($15.00 @ BIG5 on a 'one day deal'), but I am a lefty, so I need to put the clip at the other end, and on the opposite side of where it gets installed at the factory. See the picture of where I want to put the clip.
    Here's a picture of what I want to do - https://imgur.com/gallery/sDB7D
    I need to drill 2 holes and tap them for the screws.

    Anyone know the thread specifications of those little T6 torx screws?

    Thanks for any guidance you may have!!

    Hmmmmm... lots of folks read my post, but zero replies. Did I say something stupid, or un-knifely? :confused: Maybe everyone secretly hates the Kershaw Grinder? o_O

    OK, well, I am still wondering if anyone knows the TPI (Threads Per Inch). I whipped out my calipers and it appears to be a M2.5 x 6mm screw. Unfortunately, I don't have a tiny thread gauge...
