You can also butt smaller sockets together - e.g. a 6 and a 12 - to create an 18 pin socket. It's a lot neater than chopping off the ends  ;>)

Yes... that style. The only hitch I see is that the 2114 is an 18-pin
part and they don't seem to stock 18-pin sockets. You can buy 20-pin
sockets and cut off two pins, but it might not be visually attractive.

18-pin sockets do exist, but I don't know where to recommend you look.
