    Kershaw Knives I'm looking at...

    After such a great treatment by Kershaw CS, I've been browsing at all the great Kershaw Knives.

    These are some I really like. They're inexpensive and don't seem too "tactical" as to scare the sheep should I happen to pull it out.

    Junkyard Dog II

    And of course the Rainbow Leek I just got for the wife:

    Just an FYI; I like their knives but the clip on mine never held the knife tight enough. I lost it and found it 4 times, the fifth time I lost it it was gone for good. I have not replaced it yet.

    The clip on my wife's Rainbow Leek seems a little too tight out of the box.

    Have you called Kershaw and asked for a replacement clip?

    Knife is gone so clip would do me no good. When I buy my next one I will carry it different. Life is a learning curve. I have found that I don't really like clips on knives. Right now I am carrying a Buck Lite, it has a case to carry it in, it is working out well.

    Try their (Kershaw) "Needs Work". Got it about a month ago, and instantly became my favorite knife.

    After looking at all of these knives, it looks like I'm a Ken Onion fan. :)

    Same here, I took the clip off, bent it inwards for more tension, bolted it back on, and its not going anywhere now

    The clip on mine is tight as heck! (Kershaw Blackout) Haven't had it move unless I've wanted it to.

    My Kershaw Cyclone's clip is very tight.

    With it's 3 3/4" inch blade I don't think I could lose it.

    The AO is fast and has a nice loud snap when opened

    I love my Ken Onion Blur... fantastic knife, and I too found that my clip was too tight if anything (at least initially). Fantastic knife, I'm looking at that "needs work"... looks great!

    The Oso Sweet's looking pretty good the longer I look at it. It looks so nonthreatening. :) But with a 3 1/2" blade only $30 on EBay.

    I have the Spec bump...love it. Also, the Boa is very nice...I just wanted a little longer blade.

    I carry the Leek in brushed finish, not rainbow (to girley). It has spring assit and is a great carry tool, quality knife.

    I have a Leek 1660G10 and LOVE it. The handles have excellent grip which also keeps the knife firmly clipped inside a pocket.
