CRK241XXP: K241XXP Swindle - Ken Onion Design
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 stainless steel handles, 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.

Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
Decent blade
The knife is nice and decent. Great as a gentleman knife. Action is super super super smooth and highly addictive!! It's a bit long but slim profile making it very subtle. The blade is very sturdy and high quality but a bit less than ideal razor sharp out of the box. Centering is a little off to the lock bar but a bit adjustment on the pivot should make it perfect. The grind is a slightly bit of uneven like almost all production knife but nothing affect the performance. The blade does wobble a bit when closed but it won't mis-fire. After all there are quite a number of imperfections (not defects) if you are nitpicking but considering it is an inexpensive gentleman flipper, the great and nice design and the super smoothness, it is hard to go wrong with this price.
