    So I mentioned this in another thread … looking for something that would be very small so as to not get in the way and yet be functional. This results from experience of myself and others (see Clay’s post here). So Pinkfloyd pm’d me an idea of these

     

    They look like they would be PERFECT if I ground off that lip and used some sort of non-slip cushion material, however, when I looked them up on Amazon they appear to be cheaply made and have poor reviews.

    So I figured I’d post up to get input from everyone, any ideas?

    Don’t have an answer… but what was your solution on handling the serrated portion (from that other thread you linked)?

    I did see these after looking at your other link…

    …wonder if they could be adapted somehow.  Look better made anyway.

    Josh,

    These might be sturdier (although a little macabre because of what they are used for). But I believe you could custom make them yourself also. Double, Triple screws along the length for different applications.

    yeah I like those curtis… I was just wanting something w/ 2 flat faces to prevent scratching… but come to think of it these couldn’t be hard to make!

    pinkfloyd, nice!! They may work if you flipped them around or ground off the points… but I’m wondering if I could fabricate some w/ small screws to almost mimic a WE vise?

    What about something like office file folder clips. They’re plastic, cut to length, rubber band in place?

    Also, anyone have problems with the forward most serration where it meets the standard bevel snagging? Do you file it down?

    I like those!! If you used a rubberband as you suggested you could cut them to a custom length to where they would bump up into the scales and prevent them from sliding backwards… great idea!

     

    I’m not sure what you mean by the forward serration snagging… I haven’t had any trouble that I can recall. how does it snag?

    I don’t use combi blades routinely, was showing a friend a little protech auto I had, and he mentioned that he had trouble with the forward most serration grabbing/snagging on his knife and filed it down some. Mine is mostly my “end table” knife and is used for opening letters, packages, and minor duty for simple tasks chair side. Just thought I’d ask and see if it was a common problem, or specific to his knife and uses.

    those plastic file doohickeys seem like they might be a cheap, easy, effective solution. If you try them, let us know how they work.

    edit: Piranha auto, not protech

    I just ordered a 100 pack lol… I will see how they work and if they work well I’ll post em up here to see if anyone else wants some!

    Elastic Velcro might be better/safer than fooling with a rubber band for regular use.

    Binder Clip

    How about binder clips? Maybe put a little tape on the inside to protect the blade.

    Clay, have you used these? Do they work well? My concern w/ these would be that they would slide when you bumped into them w/ the stones and thus not offer much protection, also it would be difficult to use w/ plunge lines whereas the binding bars you could cut to length… gonna give it a shot and see how it works =)

    I’ve tried “binder clips”… didn’t think it worked all that well.

    Those plastic ‘binding bars’ look promising… cut to length so they don’t slide, a piece of blue tape would probably hold them in place.

    Hurry up Josh.  🙂

    Alright… I’ve tried this on 2 blade shapes so far and it works PERFECT! I can foresee the scales getting in the way on some knives but I will cross that bridge when I come to it. For serrations I don’t think you would have an issue, just degrease the blade and use blue tape to hold it in place.

    This is a Kershaw Launch 1 blade only…

    Next I tried a Strider SNG:

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>These would work on up to 1/4″ thick blades ?</p>
