This is a beautiful blade! It came sharp as hell outta the box. The kydex sheath is excellent as well. The only thing I could knock it for is the handle thickness. Ive got large hands and when I grip the blade it just feels a tad thin. But overall I am impressed with the quality/ fit and finish... I will be buying more blades from Spartan for sure
Fine piece of craftmanship, sharp as heck, shaved hair off my arm. Wish I could get my other blades that sharp. Liked it so much, I'll be looking to pick up the Difensa, thanks
Quality was first class, all aspects of construction and attention to detail were top notch. The blade design was well thought out for it’s intended use. This knife will be a great addition to my kit and help keep me mission ready at all times.
Ps. Customer service is outstanding.
Best knife I have ever had and plan on buying another one.
Absolutely up to the tasks. Finish is flawless but the sharpness I would have perferred a bit more edge but it is satisfactory. I will be buying more. Kidex is pretty good. I would perfer molle strap adaptor but this can be remedied.
This blade is by far the best I have ever owned in terms of build, design, feel, weight, and purpose. "Perfectly balanced, as all things should be..." - Thanos. This is personal opinion and preference, of course. Although, I'd venture to say you wouldn't be disappointed with any knife you chose to purchase. (I wish Nyx was still an option).
I own knives from barlow too SOG too buck too zero tolerance. Simply put NOTHING can touch Spartan. The best.
Wow whata knife, haven’t yet had a chance to put it to work, but the fit and feel of this knife is incredible, super comfortable in hand & a nice thickness.... sharpness unmatched !!
Grade A quality. Satisfaction meet!!! Dependable and razor sharp!!!
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.
