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.
This knife is phenomenal. Looks good on the website, looks even better in person. The shape is amazing with nice bevels, very sharp blade and strong tip. The Horkos is perfectly balanced from the top of the handle and start of the blade. The kydex holster its comes with is very well made as well. The knife fits snug in the holster and doesn't jiggle or move. You don't have to worry about it ever falling out. Its a great high quality American made knife. Highly recommend it to anyone. Big shout out to the guys at Ronin Tactics who recommended Spartan Blades.
Top quality knife. Best knife I have ever held or seen in person.
This knife is all I expected it to be. Excellent design and workmanship. Great service and quick delivery.
Awesome blade. Quality work. Definitely one of the best blades I own - and I have some of the top hand made knife names in my collection, including Jimmy Lile and Randall!
Have been wanting to get this knife for sometime now, but I finally purchased one. Everything I expected and more. Quality is just excellent and attention to detail and craftsmanship is second to none. Blade is well balanced and feels great in the hand. blade is razor sharp. I got the Kydex scabbard, fit is tight and snug, no chance it is going to come loose. It's a work of art!
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.
