Knife Review: Smith & Wesson SWFR2S Extreme Ops

By Tim Gamble 

In my recent EDC pocket dump, I mentioned that earlier this year I started carrying the Smith & Wesson SWFR2S Extreme Ops knife  as my everyday pocket folder. I've had one for years which I keep in the glove compartment of my vehicle. I purchased a second one when I decided to use it as my EDC knife. 

This relatively inexpensive knife (about $24 on Amazon as of Dec. 12, 2021) has proved itself more than adequate for the job as my EDC knife. Sharp right out-of-the-box, big enough to handle most tasks, and tough, I am very satisfied with this knife. I would (and actually have twice now) rate it 5 out of 5 stars on Amazon.

Here are the knife's specifics:
  • 3.3 inch blade and 8 inch overall length
  • Locking blade is high carbon black oxide stainless steel 
  • Tanto point blade and partially serrated
  • Handle is coated and textured aluminum
  • 4.4 ounces in weight
  • Glass breaker on end of handle
  • Seat belt / cordage cutter built into handle
  • Pocket clip and ambidextrous thumb knobs
I have had absolutely no problem with either of the Smith & Wesson SWFR2S Extreme Ops knives that I own. I haven't had any cause to use the glass breaker or seat belt cutter yet, but the knife itself is excellent. It makes a great EDC knife in my opinion. Find it on Amazon at
