    I've been looking through the thread and haven't seen the one I was going to mention; more in a minute. I agree the Proper is pretty great looking from a user stand point.
    The knife I was going to mention is the Cold Steel . . . wait, wait, wait . . . come back !
    Anyway the Cold Steel Lucky One.
    Carbon fiber handle, slip joint with a half stop (I could care less about that but some like it)
    are you ready ? ! ? !
    S35VN steel.
    Not my fave alloy but it gets big time support here, think Chris Reeve.
    So light you can carry it in a shirt pocket, has a fairly narrow blade like a smaller slip joint but the blade stock is thicker so is more robust for . . . I can't imagine what . . . but the blade is very stout if anything though it is not a wide blade so it cuts curves well enough. I have use for that.
    Even has finger grooves.

    I like it so much I have two; a plain edge and a serrated (long story I'll post a link if you care to see it).

    I've put the Nite Ize stick on clips on SAKs. They work very well.

    I have brass inserts for adding pocket clips. With a drill press you should be able to drill and install for a clip. There are some beautiful Titanium deepcarry ones on EBAY. I am hoping to be doing Proper grips soon in several different materials and could probably do with a clip.

    Yes... I had a Lucky for a little while. It was very nicely made.. just a really nice knife. Great steel, and two identical blades, except one has the great CS serrations. Very nicely finished carbon fiber scales. Apparently CS has these made in Italy (says so on the blade) and I could find no flaws in mine at all.
    My only problem was that I was carrying it as my "pocket" knife, and not as my "clip" knife... it was a little on the large side for that, and really was a duplicate of what I use my clip knife for. I ended up giving it to a friend of mine at work, who really liked it, but couldn't afford to order one at this time because he's in the middle of renovating his house... all his funds are going toward that.

    Currently I rotate several clip knives... Kershaw Leek with carbon fiber and CPM154, a Kershaw Link with M390, a Spyderco Centofante with VG10 (I think), and a Benchmade MiniFreek with S30V.

    If I chose to go with a traditional as a clip knife, this would be the one, no doubt.

    Sharp By Design Micro Typhoon is more gentleman carry than tactical and really well done. William Henry makes some nice clip models also.

    The WE Practic might fit the bill...

    I see that Case is offering the Trapperlock with a clip and assisted opening, of that is of interest to you.
