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!
Awesome knife. Beautiful and useful.
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.
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.
