    I think my first "real" knife is going to be a RSK-1 Mini-Grip.

    But I would like a deep pocket clip. Anyone know where to get one? Or who makes one?

    Try Steve Rice. He makes low rider clips.

    Here is a picture of one he made for me.

    Thanks! I sent an email to Steve.

    I'm assuming he has a Mini-Griptilian so I don't have to send my knife to him?

    Nice, I'm hunting a purple one right now, they discontinued the purple and green ones a couple of years ago.

    I just snagged a NIB green one last week on Ebay.

    I'll second Steve's work. He's top notch, likes to get everything just right on the first try. That's why he prefers to have the knives sent to him. I had him grind an Emerson style wave into a knife for me. Yes he's the only aftermarket modder with Ernie's permission to do so. That's how good his work is.

    Just got a Green Mini-Grip too. It's not nearly as neon green looking in person. I really like the color. I think I might do a blade swap with my Ritter Mini-Grip. I think I'll send it to STR as well.

    Question is, should I go with Green clip to match if Steve can do it, or plain un-anodized since the anodized coat will probably wear off from pocket carry?

    Also, are STR's low rider clips matched perfectly, so you can remove it and put it on another Mini-Grip with existing screws?

    Sorry to dig up an old topic, but I had one question

    Who is the person who makes the custom deep pocket clips?

    I'm looking for one for a Spyderco CF Harpy... Do you think it could happen?

    Steve Rice, a.k.a. STR. You can find him on Bladeforums.

    Look in the Makers section as he has his own forum and has some FAQ's there also.

    Steve Rice, STR does great work. I just got my Buck 560 Titanium back Monday with a low-rider leftie clip!

    Thanks all. I got in contact with him, and am waiting for an old spyderco harpy beater to get to me, so i can then plop it right back in the mail to get it rescaled and a new pocket clip put on

    I'll post pictures when i get it back
