Bends the Rules of What a Folding Knife Should Be.
With the IKBS™ fast and smooth opening sys-tem and a unique blade that opens from the opposite side, there's more than meets the eye with this slim everyday carry knife. But once in the hand the functional subtleties become apparent.
The Swindle™ was designed by award-winning knifemaker Ken Onion in Kaneohe, HI. Never at a loss for ideas, Ken wondered whether you could put a longer blade into a traditional pocket knife style. The result is a stunning and functional gentleman's knife awarded Blade Magazine's Most Innovative Design in 2013.
A hollow ground, modified Wharncliffe stainless steel blade with a satin finish is crafted to tuck neatly inside the handle. When you open the blade your eyes do the same. You'd never guess the handle could hold such a long cutting tool at first glace. The design just flows nicely from tip to tail with the slightest of uphill curve.
The IKBS™ opening system compliments it all. With this ball bearing pivot system you simply use your finger on the flipper and the blade deploys smooth and fast. A frame lock, tucked neatly into the handle, provides safe use. The Swindle™ pushes the limits of just how many features you can pack into an eve-ryday carry knife.
You can't help but grab hold of this stylish folder. Once you do, you'll find that the stainless steel handle with a grooved surface feels good in your hand and provides great grip. Then you'll wonder why no one had ever thought of building a knife this way before now.
When you're ready to go, a unique clip design flows from the tail end back over the spine. The tension lever securely clips into the pocket and "nests" the knife for comfort.
If you are seeking a classy, slim, everyday carry knife that "bends" the rules in your favor, the Swindle™ is a good bet.
