Probably I’m biased. I have 7 fixed Spartan Blades knives.
The Enyo is a great EDC especially if you want concealed and don’t want to bother with a belt or heavier clothes. That said you don’t give away much with the Enyo. It feels great in the hand and is easily manipulated. Blade steel on all Spartan Blades is the best hands down. Easy to get scary sharp and stay that way.
Honestly I might just get rid of all my other high end brands. You can’t improve on perfection and that’s what Spartan brings to the table. Maybe someday they’ll do a tactical hatchet in S35VN and it’s game over
The Enyo knife is beautiful and sleek. Extremely sharp and great detail. The sheath however, had a small area that was not smoothed out internally. This caused the bead chain to break off after the second pull. It was remedied by grinding out the end of the sheath on the top side with an 1/8 inch burr. I re-ordered a second sheath and a second bead chain to test further.
I'm very happy.
See you soon for a new order.
Superb craftsmanship. The absolute best neck knife on the market today!
I both own the Difensa and the Enyo. Having purchased the Difensa first, my expectation of the Enyo was quite high. I was looking for a light back up blade. Normally I'm using the Spyderco Paramilitary 2 which is awesome, but in this case I wanted a fixed blade alternative instead of a folder. When you go to sandy or wet areas I prefer a fixed blade so I don’t have to worry about sand getting in any moving parts of the knife and the cleaning of the knife is much easier.
The quality of the Enyo and sheath are great, and the ergonomics are good. The blade is pretty small and the handle is short, so don’t expect a full grip handle. It is good for small cutting tasks but with long use you will get hot spots due to the handle design which is comfortable but not for long use. The only minus about this knife for me personally is the thickness of the blade (3/16”). The blade thickness of the Enyo is the same as the Difensa which is a bit overengineered in my opinion. As a backup blade I want something that is very sharp and able to support small and precise cutting tasks. It doesn’t need to baton through logs or pry open a door. A thinner blade would have allowed for a narrower edge which would have increased usability in my view. Again personal view so feel free to disagree.
Other than that quality is great.
Outstanding product from an outstanding company
I have been on the fence for a while about this purchase, I’m glad I finally made the choice to purchase. The quality it outstanding, the edge is perfect and the feel in my hand was exactly what I was looking for. I highly recommend this item if you in the market for a small fixed blade.
This was my first purchase from SB and I was a bit wary since I usually don't buy from random ads online. However, I was happily surprised. From the moment I sent in my order until when I opened the box, the SB Team was on top of things. It was a great experience, and I will definitely buy from them again. It felt personal, and that kind of feeling is hard to show when you never sit face-to-face with one another.
As for the Enyo itself; the blade came better than expected. It's sharp, light, and fits smoothly in my hand. I do wish I had some form of hand-grip for the tool, as it would allow for an even better hold. But as is? It's perfect. It fits snug in my kit and no matter where I put it, it doesn't stick out or get in the way. I'm happy to make it a center piece on my gear and won't step out without it.
Thank you, SB, for showing you care and for making an excellent tool.
Quality of the knife is excellent.
Easy to handle and the edge extremely sharp and made to last.
Spartan Blades Enyo - Inside Waistband (IWB) / Everyday Carry (EDC) Knife
