    I just picked up an old model Military with the 2 hole clip. The clip is missing, but the rest of the knife looks pretty nice. Am i crazy to think i can find an original clip for this or do they pop up for sale? If it was to be a user i would probably just slap a regular clip on and not worry about the third hole, but i just want it to look original.

    I would mod a new clip. The new clips have a curve to them and the oldest ones are straight but trimming off the top hole part of the clip would at least look a little more original.

    It sounds like i am out of luck to find an original. I can mod the newer style one if needed. I am just going to keep my eyes open for an old one. If i can't find anything i may just dump the knife. I just bought it because it looked nice and vintage.

    I have an old one in black blade ATS-34 steel with the 2 hole clip.Mine has the curved 2 hole clip.
    The curios thing is the handle screws are on the other side of yours.
    What steel is yours ??

    Did you contact spyderco? They have some older model clips in stock. I called a few years back and got a clip for my gunting. It never hurts to try.

    Maybe i will give it a shot. Thanks

    Edit: Spyderco has no clips from this era and the person I spoke to never saw one of these before. I sent a picture to her for a reference.

    Hey, if you still need the clip I can take it off my beater and send it off to you. It is the 2 hole curved style, just let me know.
    if you need it my email is [email protected]
