The original Swick was developed for fast deployment, lightweight carry, and an incredibly secure ergonomic grip.  The new Swick 3 is the result of Spyderco’s Constant Quality Improvement (C.Q.I.) process and provides an outstanding grip while offering even greater versatility and strength.  Designed by Sal Glesser, the Swick series features a large index-finger hole—a feature developed by custom knifemaker Fred Perrin. Placing your index finger through the hole locks the knife securely into your grip and greatly reduces the possibility of it being dropped or dislodged during use. It also allows you to keep the knife in your hand while freeing your fingers to perform other tasks. The Swick3’s enhanced finger-hole design is larger and is complemented by jimping on the adjacent top and bottom surfaces of the tang. These refined ergonomics make the Swick3 even more versatile and secure during use.

The Swick 3 is crafted from a solid piece of premium CPM S30V steel and is skeletonized to reduce weight without sacrificing strength. The blade features a full-flat-ground wharncliffe profile and a handsome tumbled finish. Although it is perfectly functional as is, the Swick3 now features pin holes for easy attachment of handle scales or paracord wrap. It is purposely sold without a sheath or scales to allow you to customize it to meet your personal needs. Made in the USA from premium US materials, the Swick3 proudly features Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole.
