I’m a big CRKT fan, and while I had interest in getting this knife when it came out, I purchased a few others from their new line that I thought I’d like more. I was wrong to wait.

This knife is gorgeous and has a lot of good things going for it. Here’s a quick breakdown:

Blade: Came razor sharp, including the flat top Veff Serrations. High quality Sandvik steel and the retention has been excellent so far. Medium hollow grind on the blade which comes to a very sharp, almost spear point tip. The serrations aren’t as good as the original Veff’s, but they’ll be way easier to sharpen, so there’s that.

Deploy/lockup: IKBS works great here. No thumbstuds, just the flipper. Liner lock is very thin but lockup is perfectly secure. Zero blade play in any direction, even after a moderate amount of use. Liners run entire length of the knife.

Ergos: Great for me, but my hands are medium to small. The G10 is grippy, and the milled out scales give additional support and are really comfortable. There’s a little bit of decent jimping on the spine, but they really could have extended it further. Bigger hands will need to choke up or use a lanyard.

Clip/carry: Clip is a small downer. Not a low carry at all, so a good amount of the knife will be exposed. Also, the clip is really tight, and I can see the G10 shredding some pockets. Clip is one position only, but it is for tip up carry. Unusual for CRKT.

All in all, I love this knife. Wish I had purchased it earlier. I would put it right up there with the new Ripple as my favorite CRKT offerings this year.

CRKT Ken Onion Swindle

CRKT Ken Onion Swindle

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 and strong 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.
