Swift & Quick: The 2009 Swick is a limited 500 piece run at the request of customers who loved the original Swick which was discontinued several years prior. The revival, like the original, is designed by Sal Glesser. Its shape and large index finger hole are inspired by the French knife designer Fred Perrin. Palm-sized, the fixed blade's skeletal handle comes without handle scales. This allows the user to create/add a personalized handle or cord wrap. Unique to the model is the index finger hole, a Perrin feature. Placing the index finger through the hole keeps the knife retained in grip, freeing up fingertips to grasp while holding the knife in a cut-ready position. Made from a solid piece of tumble-finished CPM-S30V stainless steel the blade is a Wharncliffe shape, fully-flat ground with The Spyderco Trademark Round Hole. The Swick does not come with a sheath, leaving carry options and sheath design open for the decision and preference of its owner.
