A solid, compact CQB/self-defense tool. The quality is superb and the product is very versatile. The size and design means I can carry it almost everywhere including on runs without any discomfort.
Fantastic knife and sheath was perfect. Just understand that this is not a all around knife, but used for self-defense as the name provides. Overall, excellent quality and perfect for the job!
To me, this knife represents the flawless execution of an excellent design. I had high hopes for it based on all the glowing reviews, and it absolutely exceeded my expectations. Even the fit and finish on the sheath shows an impressive attention to detail. A utility knife this is not, but if you are looking for a blade for self defense, look no further. Quite frankly, I don't own many other objects that are as obviously well made as the CQB Tool. Knowing they are made about two hours from my house is an added bonus!
Nice small and compact. Excellent tool
This is a fantastic quality product! I am very happy with the quality and will be looking at the other products as well!
Exceptional quality and design. I appreciate the finish quality and the people who made this tool. Would definitely recommend Spartan Blades when choosing a blade.
I came across spartan blades a few times looking for a good knife to pair for my EDC kit. Skip forward some time when I finally ordered it, and I do not regret a thing. It weighs just over that of a pen when unsheathed. The loop allows quick removal and easy access to my handgun if I ever needed to get someone off of me to use it. I have my knife now strapped into my Tier 1 Concealed holster which allows me to get right to it if I ever needed to. Very comfortable, and a very nice blade. It’s not meant for utility purposes but if you’re just trying to pop some zip ties or something like it the knife can still be used for that. It just doesn’t cut well. If you’re looking for a knife specifically for self defense on top of a weapon system, I think this one is by far the best.
The fit and finish on this blade is superb. High quality steel. Feels great in the hand. Blade fits snug in sheath and sheath allows for a variety of mounting positions. Hard to tell if it is perfectly symmetrical but looks close enough. Going to buy a second one.
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.
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."
