Innovation and Integrity. To Us, Nothing Matters More.
These convictions come first. Innovation means building products that will continue to lead and define the industry in terms of creativity and utility; it means constantly asking ourselves how we can be better. For the past 25 years, we’ve released industry-shifting innovations and worked with some of the most renowned custom and independent knife designers in the world. What really ties it all together though, is our true guiding light.
We are guided by integrity—this is critical to how we’ve chosen to do business. It means interacting with our customers and each other honestly and directly. It also means building products that perform reliably and a brand that behaves consistently, decade after defining decade. We were born in Oregon, and our knives and tools truly reflect the rugged terrain from which they come. That, to us, makes all the difference.

Bends the rules of what a folding knife should be.Who better to "cheat" the rules of typical folding pocket knife design other than world renowned Knife Designer Ken Onion, whose new Swindle design flows from tip to tail with the slightest of uphill curve. It innocently tricks 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 the handle, and the hollow ground, modified wharncliffe blade moves with ease thanks to the smooth IKBS pivot system. The IKBS innovation is arguably the strongest, smoothest pivot system on the market.The Swindle comes in two versions, both with Razor Sharp Cutting Edges with two distinguished handles. The K240XXP in a flat, smooth handled version and the K241XXP in a distinctive grooved handle. Both excellent selections for the refined knife enthusiast.For carry, Ken went the extra mile with a clip design flowing 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.Specifications:Blade Length: 3.2" (81.28 mm)Edge: PlainSteel: 8Cr14MoVBlade Finish: SatinBlade Thickness: 0.12" (3.05 mm)Grind: HollowClosed Length: 4.25" (107.95 mm)Open Length: 7.5" (190.5 mm)Weight: 3.3 oz (93.55g)Handle: Stainless SteelStyle: Folding Knife with Frame Lock

1. Attractive design - I think it looks cool and I'm a fan of the quick deploy mechanism - although this one is not spring-mounted so the deployment isn't as quick as other open assist blades.
2. The single clip - I'm a lefty so the simple clip on this one works for me without having the unscrew the clip to switch sides.
1. Blade edge - out of the box this blade is not sharp and it's been a lot of work to clean up the edge to improve the situation.
2. No lock - no blade lock on this one and yes, it has opened on its own in my pocket multiple times which is freaking scary.
3. Unclear shape - holding this in my hand it's not always clear which side the blade deploys from. I tend to have to juggle it around to get it right.
So if this is your desk letter opener it's gonna be just fine, but for an every-day-carry knife I don't think this is a good choice.
1) the blade shape is really too flat for most cutting tasks and is excessively pointy
2) I don't see a way to carry this without risking jamming my hand into the tip of the blade (again). The clip is on the back of the blade essentially requiring top up, blade forward carry. Knives with their clip on the side can be positioned such that the tip-up blade faces the back of the pocket, safely away from the hand reaching in to get a pair of keys, for example.
This is a knife for general edc use, which should cover 90% of knife owners. The clip is lovely but lacks a tight grip, so I’d carry something else if I were doing any physical activity that involves vigorous vertical movement. Otherwise, it works as advertised.
Tl;dr: The Swindle performs perfectly, and I’ll let images do the rest.
My only complaint is the pocket clip. It's a neat design exercise and gets a lot of comments and interest from the "knife nerds" at work, but it just doesn't work well for me for EDC. Unlike the Spyderco wire clips or the spoons on my Benchmade, Boker+ Urban Trapper and ZT, I find myself having to "think" about this clip when I put the knife in my pocket. One advantage is that the clip looks like an ink-pen and NOT a knife clip, which can be handy. One place I REALLY like this clip is when I carry it in the internal, breast pocket of a sport coat or suit because it rides perfectly. Also, in those settings, the knife is "pretty" enough that people don't look at me oddly, as they might with my ZT or other more "tactical" looking folders.
The clip is the only reason I don't give 5-stars, because it makes EDC odd for me.
Overall, a great value and nice knife.
It's a sleek, thin, so-called gentlemen's folder at most, but I bet you could dress a deer with it if needed. The grooves remind me of the underbelly of a whale. I'm calling it my Little Whale.
