A Sweet Onion With Tons of Character

Ken Onion has made quite a name for himself in the world of knives. And the CRKT Swindle puts his prowess on full display. This gorgeous gentleman’s knife breaks rules that traditional knives hold true. That’s mostly due to the pocket clip, which is not fully fastened to the handle. Press on the little thumbstud to open it and clip it to your pocket. When you release it, the clip will automatically find the right tension to stay put on the go. Featuring a wharncliffe blade—which is uncharacteristic for Onion—the Swindle is made entirely out of stainless steel. The 3.25-inch blade, crafted from 8Cr14MoV, is highly resistant to corrosion. Deploy it by way of the flipper tab. For something even more unique, go for the grooved handle version, which has ridges throughout, almost like a seashell. 

Note: At checkout, choose between the flat handle and the grooved handle (+ $15). This drop is limited to 100 units. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
