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.

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.
Very nice movement
Very nice feel in hand
Very good build quality
VERY slim and sexy looking. I just LOVE the way this knife looks and feels!
Interesting pocket clip (see bad parts below). I like that I can pinch it with two fingers and slide it right into my pocket without PRESSING the knife along the pocket edge. If you imagine...well...literally any other type of pocket clip...you can picture how you have to press it into the edge of the pocket material to allow the up-sweep to slip into place and slide into the pocket. Sometimes you don't press hard enough, or at the wrong angle...and have to pull the knife back out and try again. Not a huge issue. But with this clip you'll quickly get used to just gripping the clip itself to slide it in and NEVER miss the pocket-edge due to how much the clip can be pulled away from the knife. Kinda' nifty. Makes for a nice experience.
Mediocre steel. Expect to touch-up the blade daily if you put any sort of use into it. It WILL sharpen to a good edge. It WON'T keep it for very long. Will it last as long as many other blades in this price-range? Yes. The steel used is seldom seen (from what I've found) but it is a "decent" blade steel that you would expect to find on a knife at this price-point.
Pocket clip is KIND-OF weak. Jeans? Zero issues. Thin and slick material like some gym shorts might not allow the clip to get enough grip. I've had these knives fall out in my car quite often. The car is low to the ground and my knees end up higher than my hips...so it really is an issue with anything I put in my pockets. Knives I've never had an issue with due to clipping into the pockets...but this one can sometimes slip out. Any NORMAL sitting position shouldn't be a problem...or if you're wearing jeans.
If you're the type to get anal about edges...they could have done a slightly better job with the frame-lock cut-out on the TOP edge. Where the frame-lock is cut perpendicular to the handle-edge...the little 3-4 millimeter edge...that is a bit sharp. Personally, it doesn't bother me. But if I were to be ultra critical - it could become an annoying pressure point if the knife was used extensively all day.
If I could buy this knife at $300 with titanium handles and S35VN steel or similar...I would jump for joy and hit the purchase button immediately. This low-cost "disposable" knife is WAY TOO AWESOME and I'd love a high-end version.
The overall shape does look better than the Leek. It is a more classic look but the all stainless construction gives it a more modern look and feel. It is a bit hefty, as well. I like the clip as the traditional clip on the side gets in the way, and I remove them anyways.
I like it being a flipper but it is hard to get off the detent. Loosening the pivot does not help much but does let the blade get a slightly perceptible wobble, The blade was also off center but flipping it for a while has brought it to center. It still takes a lot of effort to get it to start opening. However, that detent does keep it from accidentally opening in your pocket or wherever else you have it. It also goes very smoothly once past that. It also locks in quite solidly but makes a softer click when locking.
It looks great. The design looks a lot better in person than on the web site. It feels great, hefty and solid. The blade is a good and practical shape. The point may be fragile compared to other designs but it is quite useful for finer work. The blade steel is really nice. It came sharp. I touched it up on my ceramic rods and it is more than shaving sharp.
It is a good deal. The only real issue is the blade being tough to flip. Beyond that, it looks and feels like a high quality device.
