This blade is my idea of an all around combat blade. Sharp as a razor out of the box, and very solid feeling in the hand. Micarta grips are perfect with their size and grip texture. Honestly, for all you grunts out there, this knife brings the cold steel and sex appeal to you in a sleek package. Keep up the great work Spartan Blades!
Loved the personal note on the receipt.
The knife arrived quickly and was VERY sharp. It has excellent balance, a comfortable handle, that doesn't have any hot spots.
The knife is very light.
My only criticism: the handles could be a bit thicker.
Overall I'm tremendously satisfied with the purchase.
An outstanding knife can’t wait to use it on my next trip. Fast delivery and service, keep up your great customer service.
The Horkos is one of the most exceptional blades I have come across. The balance is outstanding, the finish and bevel are perfect. I look forward to deploying with this knife and putting the Spartan name to the test.
I am VERY happy with my Spartan Horkos (Black on Black). After reading all of the reviews on the forums, I decided to purchase one. The knife and service provided by Spartan is outstanding. I will be recommending them to friends and family.
This is the highest quality knife I have ever had. I do a lot of backpacking and this is the most trustworthy and rugged piece of equipment on me. Hands down amazing product quality and customer service!
Top quality knife, sheath is built to last as well. Makes Tops and Esee seem like toys!
Nice blade, still working on the best grip for my hands.
Spartan Horkos Combat / Utility Knife
In Greek mythology, Horkos (or-kos) was the personification of the curse that would befall anyone who broke a sacred oath. The Greeks considered Horkos to be the demon-protector of honor, and honor was everything to the ancient Greeks.
The Spartan Horkos custom combat knife was commissioned by the Combat Weapons Team of the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY, with custom etching to honor their graduating class. As all graduates of West Point are defenders of our freedom and take a sacred oath to protect the U.S. Constitution, we chose Horkos as the name of this formidable combat knife.
The Horkos is designed as an excellent all-around combat and utility knife. It’s intended to see its user through a variety of tough situations, and is crafted with reliability, durability, and functionality in mind.
