I was beginning to lose faith there for a while as things really dropped off but even now things come at a trickle anymore compared to yesteryear. I still see lots of traffic here each week but I removed the info to make changes. Things are not selling like they were so I'm going to be discontinuing some select models no longer called for. Clips have died off for interest from across the board here in my shop this year. I'm not seeing any interest at all from anyone compared to past years really. It is probably related to options available now on the aftermarket but for now I do still custom make fold over and standard style clips to fit folding knives.
I liked doing them for folks when people wanted them. As I have always said I'll do them as long as they are called for.. My prices are where they are to pay our rich uncle his cut at the end of each year. I can't do that without it priced where it is. But no excuses. They are $35 ea. $40 if you use pay pal and that is that. A penny less either way I'm paying the customer to do the job and I don't have the money to pay uncle sam. That can't work.
In the mean time I'll sell the remainder of what I have if you call for it and I have it in the way of blanks but at a trickle of one or two clips ordered every month, well, its just not going to be feasible to keep them in stock the way I did in the future, meaning once these are gone and used up. So for the Griptilians, Emersons, and all using that clip I still can fill orders. Still have the Leek, the JYDII is down to very few left. And the Para 2 while they last. Once gone at the rate of requests these Spyderco and JYDII patterns will be dropped. For now I do have some. I do have some Southards left and Military models. which use the Para original clip pattern so I'll have that as well while they last.
