One of the best little folders from CRKT that I've ever handled is the Drifter. It's just a simple design that works well and it is very inexpensive. I'm not familiar with the Swindle, I'll have to check it out. Edit: Wow, I like the look a lot! It's definitely got a Swayback look to it. Kind of a departure from Onion's usual style. Did you go for the smooth or patterned handle? I'm not too sure about that pocket clip, but that's just me. I'll be honest with you, my one major concern is that the specs state an all aluminum handle, including the frame lock. This Al frame lock has been tried before and was an utter failure. The failure actually made way for new modifications because soon after a steel insert was machined into the end of the Al lockbar and it worked fantastically. Please let me know if this has an insert in the lockbar when you receive it. I may have to look into one of these. I love thin flippers and I really love IKBS pivot systems.
