    My bad. I was thinking of a Camillus and/or a Kershaw with a tapped liner. If you multiply the thickness of the liner in decimal inches by the number of threads per inch of the pocket clip screw (usually 52TPI), you get the number of threads holding the clip. A custom nut with 3 holes in it could work, but the number of threads holding the screws/clip still need to be considered. The other problem with tapped liners is that the clip screws can bump into the blade in the neighborhood of its pivot swing if they are too long.

    Tip up Military works great for me.
    Partly 'cos I'm so used to tip up carry but also 'cos I don't really like the clip under the forefinger end of my hand when using the knife.

    Sketchen scales with 2 nuts recessed into the G10 and a standoff instead of the lanyard tube.
