Anybody know of a deep carry pocket clip for ZT knives?

    The only fault I've found with my ZT 0350 is the amount of knife that sticks out of the pocket when it's in the tip-up position. It just doesn't work for carrying places where I don't want to advertise that I have a big tactical looking knife. So does anyone know of an aftermarket deep carry clip compatible with the 0350? Preferably something like the STR lowrider clip I've seen on Paramilitary 2s. I've been think about attempting to drill a couple holes nearer the end of the grip, but I'm reluctant to take a drill to my $100 knife.

    Thanx!

    There is a guy in the custom knifemakers area that makes deep carry clips for any knife.

    Go to the main page here, then "Hosted Knifemakers Forums", then "STR's Back Yard Knifeworks".

    Does anyone know if any of the clips from either Knifekits or USAknifemaker fit the standard ZT clip?

    I don't know yet, but I have a couple clips coming from each with a couple of different screw configurations. I'll post up here if they fit the my Zt's, or if they're close.

    Got the three deep carry I ordered from USA. They do not fit zt's.

    Benchmade and Spyderco configuration works, though the screw holes are a little bit tight(you have to screw through the holes to begin attaching to the knife). If you have a dremel and patience, the blank Ti clips will probably work. That's probably the route I'll be taking once I have some free time. I'll be checking out STR for my 0550. I'd like that one to be pretty.

    In the meantime I have my Bone Collector, and a Cara Cara 2 with new deep pocket clips.

    Sometimes you just gotta do it yourself


    (I have since drilled and tapped the knife for the second screw.)

    ^^That's gorgeous. Would have loved it if they came out of the box like that. I have zero metal skills, so I'm not even going to attempt it.

    I am going to try to do something with some Ti clip blanks for my 350 and 300. They have some wear already, and just need to be the beasts that they are. The 550 I want to keep sleek for a little bit longer before I muss it up. Plenty of time for that later;-)

    No idea on how the screw holes line up, but a Contego or Adamas clip might work. I no longer have a 350 so I can't test it, but it could work. Other than that I don't know of anything that would work.

    Actually I would get 2.
    One for the 350 and one for a Kershaw skyline.
    The holes are the same.

    I swear there is a Kershaw or ZT with the 350/Skyline clip that is deep carry. If not *cough cough wink wink nudge nudge* I might have an idea for Kershaw.
