Super high quality! These knives are super high quality - meant for hard use and very durable. Spartan Blades customer service is outstanding as well.
The Difensa is next on my list.
An incredible piece of steel. Awesome
First let me say that the speed of order fulfillment and delivery was outstanding. And the destination was across the planet. Thank you. Second, this knife is a work of art and exquisitely utilitarian. Perfectly balanced and fits in my fist like it was tailored. I love it. Thank you!
My first fixed blade of this size, quality and craftsmanship. Will be good for bushcraft or any other task. Kydex sheath is tight, worth the extra money. I went 3 tone black horkos, green handle, tan sheath which matches my kit. This blade will be around for a long time. Will be getting more Spartan Blades in the future.
Very nice blade, my second from Spartan and I will be back for more.
This knife surpasses every expectation I had for it. There is a great deal of thought and effort put into designing and crafting these knives, and it shows! My brother has a Harsey Model 2 (now called Difensa) and I am as impressed with my Horkos as he is with his Harsey Model 2! I believe I will be adding some more Spartan fixed blades to the collection. Even something on the larger side like the Difensa and Horkos and so amazingly well balanced it makes you wonder why other knife makers don't do more. The answer is simple, Spartan blades is operated with passion and I am also ecstatic to support a company which is not only American, but also supports and is operated by veterans. Hands down the only place I will be buying knives!
I'm a West Point grad and saw the collaboration with the West Point team for design and function. It still exceeded my expectations, and the folks at Spartan Blades were kind enough to laser etch my grad year and class motto. I can't recommend this knife enough for tactical, bushcraft, or EDC uses.
From the name to the design to the materials. no chance of rust like with 1095 blades, stays hella sharp. made in the usa. what more could i ask for?
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.
