I won't begin to pretend that I'm anyone's expert. I work and buy gear that I intend to use and rely on when it's needed. This knife is sharp af, sturdy yet delicately balanced. Function so far has been superior with push button action and a nice flat finish. Grip is nice, I love the way it fits nicely into my pal.s and fingertips. I totally expect a lifetime of use and well worth the investment thus far.
Great customer service.
Knife is well balanced, solid lock up.
Could be more pleased with the workmanship.
This knife feels good in your hand. Like it belongs there. Well crafted. Opens smoothly. Being the second knife I've bought from spartan blades I'd expect nothing less. Thank you.
Just received my second Pallas folder. It is all you will ever need in a folder. I have had a number of folders in my time and there are none that can compare with this blade. It is perfect in size and proportion and the cutting power is second to none. I see no reason to buy anything more expensive. It is unnecessary. Anything cheaper would be inferior. There is no pretense to this folder no extra decorations - just a kick ass cutting blade.
Just received my second Spartan Blades knife that will be replacing my faithful EDC that has also been with me on every deployment and FieldEx I’ve ever been on in 22 years of service. As soon as the Pallas was in my hands I knew I made the right choice. Excellent fit, feel and finish. Yes it is more expensive than other brands you find in the BX or gun shops/ shows but you get what you pay for. Some other reviews talked about the blade being somewhat stiff to open...not the case here. Smooth as butter! Get one, you won’t regret it!!
This is by far the best folder I have ever owned. Solid, well built, beautiful.... I love it! My other knives are now in the safe and will be for a long time.
The fit and finish is outstanding. For some reason I can't get mine to open all the way using the flipper. It stops about 3/4 of the way and I have to flick my wrist for it to lock. Maybe after opening and closing several times it will loosen up. Time will tell, but you can't go wrong with this knife. This is my first Spartan but it will not be my last.
Very fine craftsmanship and quality. Extremely sharp, quick opening, lightweight, and comfortable to carry. I carry this everyday and I couldn't be happier. Customer service was quick to respond and excellent.
Pallas “Black Out” Button Lock / Thumb Stud / Flipper
In the ancient Greek world of the Spartans, Pallas (/ˈpæl əs/) was the Titan god of war. When you look at this knife, you can see why it bears the same name. The Spartan Blades Pallas Flipper Folding Knife features a formidable CPM S35VN steel blade, which is housed in an aerospace aluminum frame using a set of alpha bearings.
With our handcrafted Pallas Folding Knife, there’s no need to worry about accessing the blade quickly and easily in a pinch. Thanks to Curtis Iovito’s custom design, the Pallas’ blade can be opened with a quick flick of the flipper tab or thumb stud.
On top of being a fast opening folding knife, the Pallas Button Lock / Thumb Stud / Flipper can be carried securely tip-up in your pocket thanks to our signature titanium arrow clip. This knife will last for years, too: every piece of hardware (including the spacers, screws, button, and thumb studs) is constructed from 100% stainless steel. Note: this knife is not an automatic opener.
Our “Black Out” version of the Pallas features a black tungsten blade with DLC (Diamond-Like Coating), a stonewashed frame and clip, and a black mil spec anodized frame.
