Behind the Brand: Spartan Blades Custom, Handcrafted Knives

As an outdoor cutlery brand, Spartan Blades aims to reinvigorate the sense of patriotism and national pride that comes from owning and carrying a well-designed, finely crafted knife that is made in the United States of America. We hope to inspire unity and self-reliance among our fellow American patriots and like minded people around the world with our brand. We create “Knives with Intent”; purposely designed for the task and environment. We strive to make all of our knives the trustworthy partner you deserve to boldly face life’s adventures. You and your Spartan Blade will face life head-on and win! Our knives are crafted to last; to be an heirloom to hand down along with your story to the next generation.

A Brief History Of Spartan Blades

In the last ten years of business, Spartan Blades has been blessed by sustained growth and numerous awards for our designs and knives. Although we came from a humble beginning, we continue to make finely crafted knives in a small shop (Our current shop is much bigger than the original "mule barn" location). We continue to make all of our knives here in the 'Sandhills' of North Carolina, just outside of Fort Bragg, NC (Home of the Airborne and Special Forces). We continually strive to hone our skills to meet our customers expectations and desires to own a finely crafted knife.

Relentlessly Patriotic - Always

Spartan Blades is committed to continuing to create jobs here in America. We have made a conscious decision to not use foreign materials. What is not made or done by us is “in-sourced” to other Veteran Owned American and American Owned companies that share our passion for quality products and craftsmanship. Our partner companies Okuden and First Spear exemplify our quest to provide the best accessories from fellow American small businesses.
