    Aside from making it yourself from a piece of steel and screwing in into the handle?

    Looking for a simple 2"ish piece of steel to add on to a folding knife, so that the clip would be visible outside of my pocket, making it legal to carry.

    Just like this:

    Buying a knife similar to the one pictured, but the seller says it doesn't have a clip.

    If you are in CA you might want to read this: http://www.ninehundred.com/~equalccw/knifelaw.html#SECTION TWO

    Basically if it is a folding knife that is actually folded closed you can carry it concealed (just throw it in a pocket,) according to the state that is; local municipal codes and such should be checked too though.

    As far as that 653k section indicated, I had the exact model of knife as shown in the picture in my pocket, belt clip out, and when I got picked up on a DUI, the cops also booked me on 'possession of a switchblade', because they say that the restraining pivot thing, that made the knife tougher to open had worn out, so you could just use the thumb screw and a wrist flip to open the blade. They never charged me with it, but it was (and still is) on the arrest record, and they kept the knife. :rant2: I'd been opening/closing that knife for years just to get it to the point where I COULD open it with a flick of the wrist. :mad:

    But I like having the clip on it, so I can find it in my pocket quickly and easily.

    Yep, flick of the wrist = switchblade, it is even written expressly in 653k. You must use a thumbstud or something similar like the carson flipper or emerson (iirc) wave to open the knife. Then just be sure your knife has a detent towards opening and a bias towards closure and you are fine.

    Just flicking your wrist from the closed position wouldn't open it, you'd have to nudge the thumbscrew to get the blade started, then a flick would open it.

    I know a $25 knife I bought at Big 5 and never modified, sure isn't.
