Good strong blade for camping, but there are some let downs. Blade is not that sharp. I had some difficulties just cutting up cardboard for starting a fire. Handle is basic and not meant for consistent use. I like the blade angle, but it just looks cool. Probably be using my Ka-Bar more.
Recentley i have become a customer of Spartan blades,my first purchase was the Hybris combat/utility blade.When i received my order i was very imppressed with the design,the balance,the quality of the blade,also the kydex sheath that it came with the role of the blade from offensive to deffensive grip transition feels well balanced also.I thought i might share a bit of my background before i go on.I have been studying the martial art of kungfu ,hand to hand combat with a blade for thirty two years under the radar with two very knolegable and incredible friends who served our country in veitnam.Thank you for a beuitifull knife Spartan blades.God bless.
A truly incredible piece of American craftsmanship by Spartan Blades. The excellent balance and design is obvious while in hand. Tool/weapon/art all in one.
What a great looking beautiful knife. Very sturdy and well built!
This is # 7 in the line of Sparten Blades, I now own. It's tuff to say which one I like the most. There the best looking, handling and functional tools in the world of knives I have ever used. I just wish that I wasn't so dang old, so I could have a lot more time to use and enjoy them. On the bright side I do have a grandson that is crazy about them also. He will have a good long life time of use for them. Thank ya'll for makeing a AWESOME BLADE!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!! Andy
Not a fan of tantos usually but this is by the far the greatest knife I own
Received knife in the mail and immediately upon opening package was impressed with the product! Can't wait to put it to use! If I could give it a higher score out of 5 I would!
First Spartan Blade, and definitely will not be my last. Fit and finish is top notch, this blade is worth every penny and then some. High quality tool! Well done guys, keep up the awesome work!
This knife, while it looks unconventional, really fits the hand well. It is extremely well balanced for cutting and all uses I can think of using this type knife for. I have only cut tinder and sliced an apple so far, (I know, pathetic, but it is brand new!), however it is very comfortable for these mundane tasks. Additionally, it is not overly heavy, and carries well, yet is very stout. As my first Spartan Knife, workmanship and quality-wise, I can see why they are so popular. This is my new favorite utility carry knife!!
