    What am I doing wrong? Tip up carry preferred, but not working out

    Surely a knife exists that will work out for me! Doesn't it? Shouldn't it? Several issues- the front right pocket is where i carry, and a lot of women's jeans are made with shorter pockets than men's. So, that's going to limit the length of the knife. OK, I can live with that. I mostly wear Levi's and I don't want to switch. I have a Kershaw Leek. I like it, but tip-up was poking holes in some of my thin shirts. I usually wear my shirts untucked. I bought a deep-carry clip for it, but that doesn't help because my pockets aren't deep enough. I bought a Kershaw Cryo G-10, which is only slightly shorter than the Leek. It is not any better. Maybe I need to get away from Kershaw and look at other brands? I don't want to go too cheap, but I would like stay around $50. I want it to have the assisted opening, too, that is one of the things I really like about the two I have. I could consider carrying a different way besides tip-up, but it just seems awkward and takes me longer to get the knife open. Thoughts? Thanks!

    Rear pocket, tip down. I know, it comes with its own set of issues, but it will have a natural open and give you a deeper pocket to work with.

    You might consider the Kershaw Scallion model. It's a Ken Onion design like the Leek model but a 1/2" shorter (closed length) than the Leek model which make a big difference for carrying in women's pants pockets. The Scallion model still has the assisted opening feature and is a USA model like the Leek. I know that I sell a lot more Scallion models to women than I do the Leek models.

    Scallion:
    Blade Length: 2.4 in. (6.1 cm)
    Closed Length: 3.5 in. (8.9 cm)
    Overall Length: 5.75 in. (14.6 cm)

    Leek:
    Blade Length: 3 in. (7.6 cm)
    Closed Length: 4 in. (10.3 cm)
    Overall Length: 7 in. (17.9 cm)

    Not that I know of, but possibly. Where would I look for something like that? I mean, we've had larger items done at NAPA, like stripped threads on a motorcycle transmission cover.

    Though I prefer Blade-Tech, I think there may be some Spydercos that fit this request.

    I don't think they would fit this application, but Tim Wegner has sold several models of knives under his Blade-Tech brand in the past, all of which were geared toward hunting tasks. The coolest was a folding ulu.
