I'd make a couple improvements. The anchor point of the swings is so near the back of the blade, these guards nearly always scissor. Second, they should have flat buttons.

I know they still produce plenty of 13" stilettos, but no swings. For that you need a big, heavy AGA at $350-450. Why not some slender ones for a $25 cost increase over the same size stiletto? I like my AGA's, don't get me wrong, but I'd buy half a dozen slender ones in dagger, Kris, and, of course, bayonet. As soon as some mangler gets blade drilling down, I'll probably turn 6-12 of the 13's into flat button, bottomless swings with solid NS tops.

I have to say, I don't check this section every day, but this is the first time I have seen these knives. Believe me, I would have jumped right away!
\I hope they become available again.
