A Refreshing New Design Going Beyond the Norm.

CRKT® has just released the Swindle™ knife, designed by custom knife maker Ken Onion, and it clearly represents a slight departure from the norm.

Who better to ôcheat" the rules of typical folding knife design than renowned maker Ken Onion. The Swindle™ design flows from tip to tail with the slightest of uphill curve. It innocently seems to trick the eye at first sight, but once in the hand the functional subtleties become apparent.

The frame lock mechanics and flipper style opener are neatly tucked into a nicely fashioned stainless steel handle shape in either a smooth, or ribbed pattern. Its hollow ground, modified wharncliffe blade moves with ease thanks to the silky smooth IKBS™ pivot system. And for some added design flair, Ken created a unique ôside" clip, which is tensioned for secure carry and nests the knife deep in the pocket for comfortable carry.

If you are looking for a classy, slim carry knife that ôbends" the rules in your favor, the Swindle™ is a good bet.

The Swindle knife manufacturer's suggested retail prices are $59.99 for the K240XXP and $79.99 for the K241XXP.
