Spyderco has released its Swick 4, an improved and refined version of the original Swick knife. The Swick 4 was designed by Sal Glesser, who is also responsible for the original Swick.
The Swick 4 features a large index-finger hole created by knifemaker Fred Perrin. Placing your finger through the hole allows for a more secure knife grip, lessening the possibility of it dropping during use. The finger hole has textured grooves on the thumb ramp called jimping, for an even more reliable grip.

The Swick 4 is made from a solid piece of high-performance CPM® S30V® powdered metallurgy stainless steel allowing for the precision you would want in a knife. The knife also features a skeletonized tang and only weighs 2.1 ounces.
Although the handle comes bare, it is perfectly functional and includes pin holes to easily attach handle scales or paracord wrap.
A custom-molded Boltaron sheath and a G-Clip attachment come with the purchase of every Swick 4 knife. The G-Clip is angle adjustable and has the ability to be mounted to either side of the sheath.
