Again, I agree with you. That is becuase the clip is attached on MOST knives opposite of the pivot end. The solution with the Maserin would be to have provided threaded holes on the back end of the knife where the heal of your have would rest so that the clip could be flipped around and positioned there - where the lanyard hole already exists. Problem solved.
However, Maserin chose not to provid threaded holes so you cannot move the clip. As it stands, you still cannot possition a lanyard hole on the Pivot end, where the end of the clip currently is, because inserting a lanyard ther would interfere with the opening and closing of the knife - right?
I agree! This is one of the few knives where you can't configure it to your liking - the clip needs to be attached to the other end of the handle.
