"Tip-up" carry

Jul 17, 1999
Would someone please explain (in layman's terms)just what is meant by tip-up or tip-down carry for a folder? Tip-up would indicate to me,in my ignorance, that the pivot would be up and the butt of the knife down.Correct, or exactly backward? I know this must have been covered many times, but I just haven't seen it.Thanks!

Don't worry, that's why we have these forums, to ask and answer questions. Tip up carry is when the pivot is down in your pocket and the tip of the blade is pointing up. Tip down is the exact opposite. Hope this helps.

Just because I talk to myself doesn't mean I'm crazy. What's wrong with getting a second opinion?
Personally I think that the clip should be described by where the pivot is at.

Pivot down or pivot up.

Takes away the essential confusion of a knife tip that changes position.

Ahhh...MDP that would make things too easy. It's too logical, it won't fly.

The choices we make dictates the life we lead.
