This is how I've been carrying this small fixed blade for the past week. My hoodie can cover the handle if needed. The Swick should be similar, if not a tad smaller.
I carry my small fixed blades in a much deeper sheath. I usually only have about an inch of handle protruding from my pocket.

Thanks to all of you.
Looks like he tried to sharpen them but he didn't do a good job,any suggestions on how to restore the edges? Im not very experienced on that.
Send them in to Golden for factory sharpening. You will basically just need to pay the shipping.

I'd be in for that. I have an M4 Manix, but I'd grab a REX45 as well.

Re: K390 Hawkbill Dragonfly?

Any Dragonfly in K390 would be an instant buy for me. In multiples. If it came both standard and HB, I'd buy both for sure.

Re: P'Kal vs. Yojimbo vs. Chinook

I like the Yojimbo because it has the most utility for my EDC, so it's a dual-function kind of knife.

For dedicated self defense? I dunno--maybe the P'Kal? But seriously, my first choice is always going to be disengagement.

Re: Lc200n Manix 2 LW Interest Poll

Absolutely. I'm not a huge fan of BD1 or S110V; however, LC200N would be perfect for me. I think the BD1N is a real upgrade on this knife. I've owned the BD1 version pretty much forever (multiples actually) as well as almost every other variant. I bought the BD1N so I could get a good comparison on...

Re: Spyderco/Murray Carter Kitchen Knife Collaboration.

When we have people like Phil Wilson, Chad Kelly, BBB, and others posting here, giving Murray Carter any praise seems like a waste. Murray Carter still deserves a lot of praise. I understand that many people don't appreciate the traditional knife making art, but it's super impressive, and Murray Ca...

Re: Spyderco BM Proper Killer!

The ZT 0230 looks like a Proper killer to me. I'm not a BM fan at all (I've gone through about 5 of them and currently own none). I really think the UKPK is the most useful slip joint I've ever owned. An upgraded version with fancy scales maybe? But honestly, I can't think of any way to make a more ...

Re: Why no more FDE coating?

You could always just get your blade coated and buy custom scales. It'd be pricey but you would have a one of a kind knife. :)

PVD is a type of process. DLC can be applied using the PVD process. It's not two different things. PVD is a process used to apply DLC.

Re: Anyone else hoping for a BBS exclusive Military in k390?

I am hoping for a Military in K390. Not for a BBS exclusive. Are the Spyderco K390 rights somewhat tied to BBS? The Urban, Police and Mule weren't. I think they're the only ones doing sprints of it for now. I'd like to see some more models use the steel, particularly some fixed blades. Either Perri...

Re: Bento Box Customer Service...

They have every right to operate their business however they see fit, and I have every right to never order from them. So far it's working out great for both of us. This. That's exactly how things are supposed to work. You don't like their policies, you vote with your dollars by shopping elsewhere.

I think Phil Wilson mentioned a bird and trout knife in the S45VN thread. Could be a model to work toward?
I thought the Spyderco Sprig was Phil's Bird & Trout.
It pretty much is.

I own both a Sprig (two, actually) and one of Phil's custom B&T's and they are very, very close.
