Just received my second Spartan Blades knife that will be replacing my faithful EDC that has also been with me on every deployment and FieldEx I’ve ever been on in 22 years of service. As soon as the Pallas was in my hands I knew I made the right choice. Excellent fit, feel and finish. Yes it is more expensive than other brands you find in the BX or gun shops/ shows but you get what you pay for. Some other reviews talked about the blade being somewhat stiff to open...not the case here. Smooth as butter! Get one, you won’t regret it!!
This is by far the best folder I have ever owned. Solid, well built, beautiful.... I love it! My other knives are now in the safe and will be for a long time.
The fit and finish is outstanding. For some reason I can't get mine to open all the way using the flipper. It stops about 3/4 of the way and I have to flick my wrist for it to lock. Maybe after opening and closing several times it will loosen up. Time will tell, but you can't go wrong with this knife. This is my first Spartan but it will not be my last.
Very fine craftsmanship and quality. Extremely sharp, quick opening, lightweight, and comfortable to carry. I carry this everyday and I couldn't be happier. Customer service was quick to respond and excellent.
Well.......beyond good , this knife is awesome !!! Built professionally, and with a long life span . Very Happy with this tool . Thank You!!!
I'm very happy with my new Pallas Black Out, Button Lock. It's solid craftsmanship, high quality materials, and very light so it feels like an extension of my arm. I'm also going to pickup a Fixed Blade to go with my hiking gear. I'm a very satisfied customer.
Supreme quality blade made with excellent craftsmanship. The flip opening action is as smooth as glass. I love the button release to unlock the blade. I'm very impressed with this folder. I would buy another Spartan Blade product without hesitation.
Excellent blade! This is the first Spartan I’ve owned and won’t be the last. Quality materials with great craftsmanship and design combine to make a knife that will last a lifetime. Cudos to Mark, Curt and the team! Keep up, the good work.
This folder is clearly at the top of its competitors. I own 3 Spartan blades and am convince that the builds are superior in quality. The materials are robust yet sexy. The mechanism on the folder is smooth and easy to flip open effortlessly. All their blades come sharp out of the box. Be careful. I would love to one day own one of every knife they make. Clearly worth the price.
Pallas “Black Out” Button Lock / Thumb Stud / Flipper
In the ancient Greek world of the Spartans, Pallas (/ˈpæl əs/) was the Titan god of war. When you look at this knife, you can see why it bears the same name. The Spartan Blades Pallas Flipper Folding Knife features a formidable CPM S35VN steel blade, which is housed in an aerospace aluminum frame using a set of alpha bearings.
With our handcrafted Pallas Folding Knife, there’s no need to worry about accessing the blade quickly and easily in a pinch. Thanks to Curtis Iovito’s custom design, the Pallas’ blade can be opened with a quick flick of the flipper tab or thumb stud.
On top of being a fast opening folding knife, the Pallas Button Lock / Thumb Stud / Flipper can be carried securely tip-up in your pocket thanks to our signature titanium arrow clip. This knife will last for years, too: every piece of hardware (including the spacers, screws, button, and thumb studs) is constructed from 100% stainless steel. Note: this knife is not an automatic opener.
Our “Black Out” version of the Pallas features a black tungsten blade with DLC (Diamond-Like Coating), a stonewashed frame and clip, and a black mil spec anodized frame.
