I have the carbon fiber version I need to get a deep carry clip and its not a real slicey knife but it did take a chunk out of my finger when the bar locked up on me and shut on my finger bled for 3 hours it was my first pricey knife I baught

Mine is fall shutty and my clip sits half on frame so I can apply pressure to it with no problem. Mine is 4 years old, I believe so I’m not sure if they’ve changed any of it since then

I love the design of this knife. Last week, I chose to buy the 0452 over the 0450 because I kind of liked the sheer size of it, but I would edc the 450 if i had the money to spare after purchasing the big one 😅

Mine's got an MXG deep carry clip, a finger choil mod, green standoffs from the CF model, and a mirror finish edge. The only way I think it could be improved is if it didn't have a free spinning pivot

I have found Hinderer pocket clips fit the 0450 perfectly doesn't touch the lock bar and it fits better in the pocket too!

Lol… the on off z/t button on your scale. 😁👍. I have the g10 variant of the 0450 with an aftermarket hinderer ti style clip from MXGgear. One of my favorite knives in my 30+ collection.

Looks like the newer ones have better placed clips. My carbon fiber has a weak detent and a loose pivot screw I just realized.
