Well thought out blade. Ergonomics fit just right in about a dozen positions and inspire confidence when handling. Barely noticeable in gym shorts iwb at 1 o’clock. Easy to carry all day long. The coating looks exceptional and feels great in hand wet and dry. Easy to clean no worries about rust getting underneath scales because of simple design. The balance feels like blade is heavy and moves with purpose. Does not feel like it will fly out of your hand slip twist or bite a finger off. Kydex sheath is nice, would be nicer with more holes or maybe design options like taco style. Overall very functional Impressive looking blade thats easy to carry , throw in backpack, or drive with.
Honestly I can not say enough amazing things about this blade. It’s beautiful crafted and wicked looking. On top of that the customer service I have recieved has been second to none. Fantastic blade, awesome company!! Thanks so much guys!
Great knife for everyday carry & self-defense. So far, best knife I have own. Will purchase more Spartan blades in the future.
Has one of the best fits into the sheath of any knife I own very secure but not to hard to draw. The length of the handle and blade are just about as perfect as you can get for a fixed blade like this and the balance is perfect. I look forward to buying more of their products in the future.
Perfect size , perfect feel, add paracord around the handle and got better control just a an amazing blade proving qaulity over quantity
I purchased this blade as an all-around carryable self-defense option. The quality lives up to everything I've heard about Spartan Blades and I was not dissapointed. I knew going into the purchase that even though the size was perfect for most applications, I also wanted something even more minimal for applications like jogging so I purchased the CQB knife as a companion piece.
This blade is exactly what I was looking for. Well balanced. Good feeling in the hand without the handle material. The knife feels like a tank, but slim and compact enough to disappear under a duty belt. This will also make a great backpacking companion. Great quality from spartan blades as always.
My first Spartan Blades knife and not the last. Extremely well made and thought out. Sharpest blade I’ve ever received from the factory.
It’s my EDC IWB knife using the kydex holster and Tactical Tether. That combo makes it carry so I almost forget it there yet it remains totally accessible.
Spartan hit a home run with this blade
Never been disappointed with any spartan blade I've purchased, and this one was the same. Extremely sharp right out of the box and feels great in the hands.
