Thank you, @spyderg! It looks awesome clip mounted left. And the engraving is a nice touch too. :D

No problem. I am really happy with how the engraving came out, I found the Ukrainian embroidery pattern and added a Spyderco bug into it with my limited “photoshop” skills. I took it into a local shop that does laser engraving and it turned out amazing. Adds a little very welcomed grip too.

Yeah it looks "out of the factory" done! I'm just happy that the Swayback is very-lefty friendly as per your PM. And a left mounted clip doesn't look out of place either, as long as it isn't the stock spoon clip. I just need to find a good replacement clip, looking at options out there. :)

The stock clip is really good, and on most knives I actually prefer it to the deep carry clips. But aesthetically on the Swayback I prefer the Lynch. Ordered mine from DLT.

Nice pics.
Thanks! Yeah, I love photography, of course.

And simply buy whatever makes you happy :)
I love your photography so much that I post them on the Spyderco Fanclub France on Facebook !! :-)

Great picture and great knife in the outdoors.

(I have also bump on our "optimistic" German friend on the other thread... who seems to love to p1ss on any parade.

You must be mildly frustrated if you keep coming back on this :D

A forum is where people express their own different personal opinions, so excuse me for enjoying p1ssing on your parade :D

In the end even the handles may indeed feel different over there, they may get rounded more due to your specific Parisian atmosphere or even based on the exact GPS coordinates for your location.

I can accept that as well, so go on with your parades or whatever you think that is :D

You got obviously some agenda against Poland, now France ?
Good to identify people like you as soon as possible. Ciao Benito !

Peace brothers. Let's not rehash thousands of years of European horribleness towards each other here on the forum. Please.
Not every choiless knife needs a choil, not every knife with a choil needs it removed. Not every big knife needs a Lil' companion. Wharnie for the whin! Friends call me Jim. As do my foes. Used to be JR in CT with a much earlier join date.

I am enjoying this knife for its F&F and smooth action; the wait for it's release was worth it. I think the clip was okay, but I think the wire clip would be ideal as well. I had a titanium deep carry clip for my Native and decided to mount it to my Swayback. I think its much better now.

Good job Spyderco, and great design Mr. Slysz.

I can't believe I just only noticed the Schrute farms background. I think Dwight would love this knife. Perfektenschlag! LOL. :D

On a more serious note, what clip are you using?

Decided to get it out and give it another whirl. I tried what Nemo said and was pleasantly surprised.

Just moving my index finger onto the pivot, made it open much nicer. Still wish it was a bit smaller.
But, it may actually see some use now.

Edit: Dang XHP is not very stainless. I'm going to have to put a desiccant packet in with it.

That clip looks great on your Swayback. Is that a 3-hole from Razor Edge?

Nope, the mountains of Georgia. I had it put up in the pouch for the past few months and when I took it out, the edge had quite a few orange speckles on it.

Nothing major. But, I will definitely add a desiccant pack to it when it gets put up.

Yes it is. Modified to fit the curve. The original clip was unacceptable to my eye. I bought the clip before I bought the knife, haha.

Did the screw pattern fit, and you just removed material at the base to fit the curve of the handle?

Josh modifies them to fit the knife.

The screw pattern isn't 100% perfect, it's made for a PM2 and then modified to the curve of the Swayback.

It works, you just have to slowly screw it on, alternating between screws until it seats. Once it's on, it's rock solid.
