If you’re like us, you love a traditional pattern with a modern build and high-end materials. The J E Made Carbon Fiber Inlay Swayback doesn’t disappoint. It’s well worth a look or three. Much like the Combustion, this super snappy knife is beautiful and has a fantastic fit and finish. While there are currently three Swaybacks in this line, the CF inlay is perhaps the most modern of the three.
The Carbon Fiber Inlay Swayback features a 3.15” brushed satin M390 Wharncliffe blade with a 0.10” blade thickness. The grinds and the swedging is nigh on flawlessly smooth and symmetrical. It opens with a nail nick and has clearly defined half-stops. It has a tremendous snap and a pull that is tight without being overly annoying.
This slipjoint has the modern screw construction we all love with a titanium frame and a beautiful carbon fiber inlay. The backsprings are flush, and the finish is fantastic. It’s 3.9” closed, 7.09” overall, and weighs about 2.6 ounces. It has a tip-up pocket clip as well as a hidden lanyard.
