    I'm looking for a new folder and want something with wood scales for a change. Must have a deep carry clip, good blade steel and a pocket friendly size/weight.
    So far the Benchmade/Shinola Valet is at the top of my list.
    Any recommendations would be appreciated, I haven't had much luck finding anything similar to compare.

    If you don't insist on American-made, you might check out some of Mcusta's offerings. Among other things, they have a Gentleman's Liner Lock with dimensions similar to the Valet (and a deep carry clip).

    Benchmade Megumi. If I can't have it, maybe you can ;)

    An interesting knife I hadn't come across before, but the lack of a deep carry clip takes it out of contention for me.
    Thanks for the recommendation.

    Then... Deep carry, wooden handle , Made in USA: Buck Vantage Rosewood, all I'd know.
    Or aftermarket wooden scales from Mr Keyman maybe.

    Shameless self promotion: Well, I have a Mcusta Tactility in the B/S/T section of the forum, might want to take a look. :D

    I'd classify that as deep carry.

    The one on the right has a 33 layer nickle Damascus steel blade with a VG-10 core.
    The left one VG-10 as well.

    BM 15031-2 I'm sure this would take one of BM's deep carry clips & they're free.

    That is a nice knife. How do you get deep carry clips for free?

    pumpmaster If you are into big knives check out the Benchmade Crooked River. Benchmade will send you a deep carry clip for free.

    The Benchmade Grizzly 15060-2 may fit, order a deep carry clip when you order it.

    (Also not sure if swapping a pocket clip in your terms means "aftermarket modification")

    It's S30V and has a gut hook so the weight is a tiny bit higher. But weight and use is all subject to opinion IMO. I've never actually used a gut hook for dressing, but they are the best on zip ties and packaging.
