    The clip on my 707 does. The one on my 940-1 just barely makes contact. I've never had an issue from either in the front pocket of jeans.

    Normally the clip will press against the scales, but persoanlly I would not call it a defect if it doesn't.

    It is a really simple fix to get more clip contact yourself, just remove the clip from the knife and very gently bend it near the mounting end. It won't take much at all, just a little tweak will do it.

    But it you really are not comfortable doing it yourself, I am sure the fine C.S. people at the factory would be glad to take care of it for you.

    Thank you sir, did what other members suggested. Man the clip is way harder to bend then i thought! I got it to almost touch the scales now and i'm pretty happy with the result! Big Thank you to everyone on EDC forum who helped me out!

    Nice job

    Yes, they vary in toughness, from soft to springy and even on rare occassion hard to the point of being brittle. But they are just plain Stainless steel, so will always have some bend to them as long as a guy doesn't get too heavy handed.

    Benchmade just replied and will be sending over brand new pocket clips!

    A day out with an old friend, and this little guy is always there in my back pocket!

    I have a Benchmade 556-1 on the way. Resistance was futile for me!! The gray & blue G-10, and the CPM-20CV blade, are all irresistible to me. I REALLY love the blue & gray G-10, THAT seriously looks so darn good to me!!! I LOVE it!!

    It came shaving sharp with a very nicely centered blade. Rock solid lock-up, both open and closed. Great quality knife.
