Codger's post is the penultimate perfect post to the post from the Gentleman with the new clampack. Yes; I personally would just get a user for the pocket and keep the clam pack intact. May I ask where you live?
Thank you, tongueriver, for your interest in the post. Unfortunately, as I explained to Codger_64, I have already opened it, urged by the desire to feel the knife. As to your question, I live in Argentina, which explains the difficulty to get good traditional American knives.
