My User Kopas - Modified by Steve Rice (STR) to Eliminate Clip

My main complaint with the Kopa is the method used to mount the clip.  Unlike the clips on most stainless Spydercos, which simply sit on the surface, the Kopa's sits in an oddly shaped milled recess in the right front bolster, as can be seen in the photo below.  That recess makes it virtually impossible to neatly remove the Kopa's clip and, since I prefer to carry my knives loose in my pocket, made it unlikely any would ever see pocket time.  I enlisted the aid of Steve to turn a couple of my favorite Kopa versions into users for me.  Steve did excellent work on these two, but there's still a concave spot in the bolster that he was not able to completely eliminate.
