So, I was going to flip the clip on my Leek for tip-down carry.
I messed up (destroyed and now lost) the screws that attach the clip to the knife.
Anyone know what size the screws are or where to purchase replacements?
I would send it in to Kershaw or whatever, but it's just not worth it to replace a couple of screws.

From the Kershaw site ...

Can I have a part sent to me?

Yes. However, we cannot ship a blade to you. If your knife needs a blade or you need more than one part, please send it in for FREE warranty service. If you want us to ship you parts other than the blade, just use the Contact Us form on the bottom of this page to request parts. Remember that parts are specific to each knife model, so please make sure the model number is included in your request for parts. You can locate the four-digit model number on the blade or handle.

I was just there and their site was down.
:/


"Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.kershawknives.com"

Seems to still be down.

Edit:
I can't get to the site anyways.

Do you mean tip-up? The pocket clip on mine came configured for tip-down.

I lost one of my screws while trying to change out the clip. Uh, in a hardware store. Because I didn't feel like paying $13 for a mini-Torx driver that I'd use one time. :o Home Depot sells a pretty nice Husky brand Torx driver with eight different sizes, FYI, including the one the pocket clip screws use. IIRC it was something like $12. Well worth it, especially since a lot of electronic doodads use Torx screws these days as well.

Call them:

KAI USA Ltd.
18600 SW Teton Avenue
Tualatin, Oregon 97062
Phone: (503) 682-1966
Fax: (503) 682-7168

They'll be happy to send you some new screws free of charge. I got a small bag with four screws and a pocket clip, so I assume this is a standard kit that they send out. Really nice people to deal with.

(The site works just fine for me, by the way.)

Trust me, someone that builds custom folders. It is much cheaper to have Kershaw replace the screws.

The screws are easy to find at you knife supply house, except they will be too long. It is not easy to shorten a small screw. You need special tooling. There is a reason Custom folders cost $300.00 plus. Every screw has to be customized.

You could also go to your local flea market and buy a cheap knife and take the screws out of it.

As a Kershaw knife collector, and someone who literally works a stone's throw away from their factory, I can say Kershaw customer service will take care of you. Send it into them, and you'll get it back sharper than when you bought it, with the clip installed with brand-new screws.
