Over the years, I've bought over 100 pocket knives and still own well over 40 pocket knives. For whatever reason, if I don't like a knife enough, I will either return it, sell it, or trade it.
I have Benchmades, Bradley's, Spydercos, Kershaws, CRKTs, Bucks, Bokers, and Cold Steel. I just realized that I have never bought a Sog... until Friday. I found a Sog Trident at my local Wally World on clearance for $18. It was the only one left and it isn't listed on the website as being on clearance. I don't particularly like the feel of the handle, I don't like the safety, and I don't like serations.
Here's where I need your opinions and help.
If you now own or ever owned a Sog, did you ever feel like the pocket clip is too deep? Even though there are a few things that I don't like about this knife, I wanted to give it a fair shake. I've carried it in my front right pocket for 2 days. I have a habit of practicing drawing knives from my pockets and flicking them open. My hopes are that it will become instinctual (second nature) should the need arise.
Unfortunately, I am having lots of trouble with the Sog Trident. The pocket clip seems too deep
It seems as though the material from my pants and cargo shorts is going up and over the top of the knife in the gap between the deep pocket clip. This is making it very hard to draw the Sog Trident from my pocket quickly. The second big problem is the safety. The safety seems to get pushed into the locked position while in my pocket which also dramatically slows down the opening.
If you've experienced this issue, how did you resolve it (please don't say by getting rid of the knife). I'm looking for real world solutions ie. new pocket clip, modify the clip, removed the safety, glued the safety.
Thanks in advance for your help.
