I like it a lot, but I do miss a pocket clip, especially during these hot months where stuff at the bottom of your short's pocket bangs you in the leg when you run (and I run a lot given I have a 3 year old). So I started the quest to find a pocket clip. But you know what? No one makes one. I contacted Strider to no avail. I know they tried to make one but it wouldn't stay put. I contacted STR, the famous aftermarket clip maker on Bladeforums to no avail. I scoured the internet and found nothing.
What I wanted wasn't straightforward, and I get that, but there was NOTHING out there. Then a coworker told me about her brother in law that did machining and gadget stuff and that he was local. Thrilled about the idea of supporting a local machinist, I reached out to him. You can find his stuff here.
The idea for the clip is to preserve all of the cool, sleek lines of your PT CC. So after talking to Raven Workshop, the clip will attach by passing through the lanyard hole. I have few ideas of how to do this, but Raven Workshop are the experts and I'll leave it to them. The idea is that by passing through the lanyard hole you can remove the clip without leaving unsightly holes drilled into the lustrous, smooth handle scales of your Strider gem. Raven Workshop has the exact specifications of the lanyard hole from the maker, so that is what they will be using.
The purpose of this post is, like with the Aeon, to gather interested parties. Like with the Aeon, I am not selling anything. I am not making anything. I do not have any affiliation with Raven Workshop. All I am doing is telling you about it. I am going to have a clip made, whether no one is interested or 30 people are interested, but the more people we get the cheaper it will be. Think of it like this: I did the leg work to find this thing that I think a lot of Strider owners will be interested in and now I am telling you about it. That's it. Not selling. Not making. I just found something you might like.
If you are interested, post in the comments below and stay tuned. It looks like there will be a prototype by late July early August and once that is done we will have an idea about price, look, and design. If you like what you see in July or August you can then contact Raven Workshop and we will see how many folks we get. I asked for a deep carry clip that is very close to handle with a very simple look. I also asked that it be made out of Ti, but besides that and the lanyard hole attachment point, that is all I know.
Commenting below represents no commitment whatsoever. All it does is help Raven Workshop ballpark the number of clips to make. Once we have the proto with price, then you can contact Raven Workshop yourself and make a commitment.
