Help with pocket clip screws!

The first Spyderco knife was made in 1976 under the direction of Sal Glesser. The company started out as a traveling entity as Sal & his wife, Gail, traveled from show to show. The first permanent establishment was in Golden, Colorado where the company made its first folding knife in 1978. The company proudly touts their knives as being different, peculiar, even out there.

Help with pocket clip screws!

Postby Colonel26 » Sat Feb 04, 2017 4:00 am

I need some info from you Spyderco experts. I have a military, not paramilitary, that I've destroyed the pocket clip on. I called up Spyderco and ordered a new clip and they sent it right out.

Here's the problem. They sent me new screws and the new screws don't fit, they're too small. The head size is the same, but the threaded part is too small. I would just use the old screws, but one of them is stripped out.

Does Spyderco use different size screws on different models? On the same model?

Colonel, I can't answer your question, however I suggest you go to the forum at Spyderco.com and ask those guys. I discovered that site this week and there are some serious Spyderco collectors/users over there.

Did I just read that the Colonel admitted that he had a screw loose? ::shrug::

Lots of fake Spyderco knifes have the wrong size threads.

Where did you buy it?
