I have just begun the journey of tools, and their ancestry. The Spartan CQB tool is light weight and slim. The sheath lashes consistently in cadence with my beltline. The synchronicity of tool and sheath operate fluidly. The sheath and tool have a very subtle locked, to unlocked operation allowing for stealth or explosive unsheathing. I have no weapons training. I am a gardener that enjoys a quality cut by a superior tool. Thank you for your dedicated hours to your skilled craft.
Nice blade construction and functionality. Very quick to deploy with practice and training.
Gonna have to get one for my boys.
I bought this as a tool and it delivers! I opted for zip ties instead of the included paracord for my plate carrier and it lays flatter than anything. Super easy to deploy but will never accidentally slip out. I can grip it in any fashion. Perfect balance and weight. Truly well designed and executed.
Holy WoW, now this is a true savior, I’ve tried in several different mounting positions between my armor, packs & even waist band, & the snatch out is always comfortable, thumb hole is the perfect size even when wearing flight gloves....plain & simply if I have to reach to this tool, I’ll be the only one walking away!! Thanks Spartan !!
Great blade, Sharp, feels good in my hand
I've never found a knife with the form factor that worked for everyday carry but the CQB tool and sheath are such a handy combination that now I never leave home without it! It's there with a very quick draw when I need it and it disappears after that with strong retention. The tool itself is of obvious quality; it arrived with an extremely sharp edge. It's heftier than it looks; this is quality metal, and you can instantly feel the difference between this and a $15 knife you might buy at a gas station or on Amazon. I only wish it came with a belt or MOLLE clip for the sheath, but that's a tiny quibble. Great purchase; I'll probably end up getting one more!
While I have not used this product for its “intended purpose” yet(and lets hope I never have to), it is outstandingly well made. I was looking at benchmade’s copy of this product purely for the price reduction but the amount of attention to detail put into this blade is impeccable. Very sharp, very light, extremely strong, and the cerakote finish is a nice touch. The ring diameter allows for a gloved hand to still function as well has the finger grooves along the tang. I am by no means an expert on this but the people here at Spartan Blades certainly are.
Great packaging nice touch the head written note on the invoice and good service
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."
