I like the idea of the loop, it seems that it might work well- but I hesitate to commit to modifying every pair of pants I wear. Also, I'm much more comfortable with leatherwork than tailoring.

I have several pairs with the inside change pocket already, but they're too shallow to keep a knife from falling sideways, and... they're awfully useful for change.

Nice to know Blackie Collins is still designing stuff.

No scanning for the moment- that hasn't always been the case, and it doesn't leave many options.

I used to carry a large shoulder pouch for the commute, but that's no longer necessary (I think- too soon to be sure), and it wasn't with me most of the day, anyway. I didn't take it to meetings, lunch, etc. I have a couple of briefcases, but they seem to have gone out of style- haven't carried one for years.

I thought of the ankle sheath option. Never worn one, so I don't have any clue how well they work. Seems like concealment could still be a problem (guys routinely cross their legs and expose some sock, and it's not to clear to me how they stay "up"), and it might be trading off the ability to run any distance for the carry. Hmm.

i'm sure that i remember seeing a wallet that had a tunnel stip of leather/fabric in order to hold a small knife. due to the knife laws here i usually carry a small SAK, and a Stan Shaw two blade folder(all under 3 inches!) use mine quite a bit for pealing oranges. i work in an office as well its fully open plan though.

Take care,

Are you sure that the change pockets wouldnt work to hold the clip of a small folder like a CRKT Kiss? Let the knife hang into the pocket but clip it to the outside of the change pocket just as you would if you had sewn a tunnel loop? Havn't tried this with my suit pants yet since I haven't had any difficulty carrying my wave even with my suits. BTW, I make a point of wearing my wave on my belt in the interview thereby avoiding any jobs that might have a problem with that. Doesn't take any conversation at all.

no, but similar, think it might have been a blackie collins affair

It appears that Spyderco no longer offers the Spydercard, but that may be an option for you if you could find one somewhere. I have one, and I will admit that I don't carry it often, because I am able to carry a larger knife, but this might provide a discreet blade for you.

Good comments. I guess a couple things play into this. One, I don't flaunt it. It's in my pocket 98% of the time. Not everyone here has even seen it. I'm sure that none of them are able to discern it in my pocket. It sits pretty good in pants that have a change pocket, too. Two, I don't think that most people view it as a tactical knife. Because they don't have any idea what that means. I originally bought the full size Griptillian, but it was too large for an office EDC. I was really impressed with the knife, just too large to carry in my pocket all the time IMHO. The mini-griptillian is smaller than a box knife, and is smaller than the palm of my hand (and I don't have big hands). The Benchmade 710 is even more streamline, but my personal preference was the griptillian. Yes there are some other "gentlemen" ; knives, and if I was in a suite and tie, I'd likely move to that. But for khaki's and polo's this works good for me. If I was concerned about my employment, or lack of, by carrying it, I would definitely put it with my FAK in my briefcase.
