The Ken Onion designed Swindle is a stylish new folder from CRKT that flows from tip to tail with the slightest of an uphill curve. It innocently tricks the eye at first sight, but once in the hand the functional subtleties become apparent.

The Swindle has a smooth frame lock handle with IKBS pivot for super smooth action. The flipper blade is a wharncliffe style with a hollow grind. Ken decided to use a clip design flowing from the tail end of the knife, back over the spine. The tension lever securely clips into the pocket and "nests" the knife for comfort.

Can't Believe how smooth the knife is.
Daniel E.
I purchased this knife and was extremely impressed with how smooth this knife is. The flipper's detent is extremely nice. The knife flips open without effort. The phosphorus bronze washers also add to the smooth making of this knife. I was extremely impressed with this frame lock. It locks up well, and is easy to engage the frame lock. The knife does lack "grip", but as long as your not dealing with oil you should be fine. Did I say how smooth this knife is? One fine detail to point out is that the knife's spine is crowned. Sweet touch for a budget knife. I must say it makes my Benchmade Anthem seem it is a overpriced gritty knife.

Everything I said regarding the Leek applies to the Swindle. Pocket clip and sizes makes it better suited to ride in the coin pocket of pants or jeans, but it's just as versatile and, like the Leek, an affordable knife that won't make you flinch when you use it.
