Another fantasticly 100% American made product from Spartan Blades! This knife is sure to last for many years to come. Look forward to gettting more knives from these guys.
Superb Quality and Craftsmanship !!!! .... Looking forward to my next purchase!!!
Excellent quality product. As with my other Spartan products I am very pleased.
I love this blade. It's the perfect size and shape for carry in the waistband. Holster retention is excellent. I'm using some pull the dot soft loops to secure it and I'm confident that it will hold up for years to come. Well worth the money spent.
Totally Awesome! Love it
THE CQB BLADE ALLOWS ME TO IMMEDIATELY ACCESS THE BLADE FROM
A LOWER BACK DRAW. IT IS VERY FAST AND IT WILL KEEP MY HAND FROM SLIDING
DOWN THE BLADE WHEN PROPERLY DOWNWARD THRUST
Great get off me blade. Love the ring for retention. Great steel. Sharp and pointy! Have carried as a boot knife, in the waistband, even at the rear of the neck / collar. Good quality sheath.
Very impressed with the quality and craftsmanship. This is more than a functional tool for your kit, it is knife art.
I previously had a benchmade SOCP, the Spartan CQB Tool is FAR superior. The steel is much better, the finish is superior, the knife out of the box was sharp, tool machining is superior, the edges are nicely beveled whereas the BM version they are edgy and unfinished. The sheath is superior as well. I carry mine IWB with two belt loops in a canted vertical position at left appendix opposite to my carry gun. Don't go a day without carrying this now. Where the SOCP feels like it was stamped and painted by a 12 year old kid at a press the Spartan Blades CQB tool feels like a quality blade. This blade belongs and will stay right next to my Emersons and Striders.
The Spartan CQB tool is aptly named and specially designed for Close Quarters Battle. The CQB tool is a ring dagger with a kydex sheath. The sheath compliments the ring on the end the knife for quick removal. The sheath is designed to lash into MOLLE /PALS behind magazine or other front pouches on a vest or be carried on belt or inside the waist band.
The design concept of the CQB tool originates with Greg Thompson, an instructor of close quarters fighting techniques (Hand To Hand) for the US Special Forces. Mr. Thompson is owner / founder of the H2H/Team ROC of the Fort Bragg based training group and developer of the Special Operations Combatives Program (SOCP). Mr. Thompson developed the new combatives program for US Army Special Operations Forces and this CQB tool is part of program gear.
The CQB Tool or "transition tool" is used to compliment this program by providing a slim easily stowed knife with rapid acquisition for, "get the heck off me", grappling situations encountered in a CQB fight. The ring and slim profile design allows for the operator to quickly pull and utilize the dagger; breaking an attackers grasp and allowing the soldier to transition back to his primary weapon system without re-sheathing until safe to do so."
