This is a knife you can bet your life on. Great construction and ergonomics. I edc this relatively large knife utilising a sash cord and carrying it similarly to traditional samurai (and Tu Lam) ZERO negatives about this knife.
Piece of art !!!
Lusted over this knife for a long time and finally purchased one. The quality of this knife is superior to any knife I have ever seen or held. Now agonizing over an Ares or Enyo for my next purchase. Well Done Spartan!!
If you could stamp your logo into the knife like Chris Reeve does on his Pacific it would be really awesome! Just an added touch of pure exemplary quality!
I purchased the Horkos and discovered Spartan Blades through an ad in Recoil. The blade is amazing, well worth the price. One suggestion would be to make the handle slightly thicker for larger hands, maybe 1/8" to 1/4 inch.
IF YOUR LOOKING TO OWN A FIXED BLADE TO BLOW YOUR SOCKS OFF LOOK NO FURTHER A REAL KNIFE MANS BLADE!
The toughest and all around knife I have ever owned.Best for EDC and utilitarian purposes....Yet combat ready if need be! Thank you a whole lot Spartan Blades!!!!
This knife is a well made and well thought out knife that will serve very well as a combat ready or utility camp knife. It has excellent balance and fit, as well as being the perfect size for multitasking anything that a knife may be expected to do. It fits perfectly in the hand, and is a snug fit in the sheath. I have purchased many knives thinking they were the one knife that I felt could do anything, only to be disappointed on their arrival, but not so with this knife. It is worth every penny, and is a very worthwhile knife to own. Also, the response time was amazing, I ordered the knife at 7:30 am and by 8:30 am the same day, I received notice that it was packaged and being shipped. The knife arrived two days later, and was everything that I was hoping for. Thank you.
I say art, but we all know it's a tool, right? Even say, it's one of the best looking tools i've ever owned. It feels so solid, the edge is incredible, and it just works. Beautifully. If you're on the fence about buying it because of the cost, just do it. Buy once cry once. In my case, cry tears of joy.
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.
