I am VERY happy with my Spartan Phrike (Black on Black). This is my second knife that I have bought from Spartan Blades, after watching some of the reviews on YouTube about it. I always receive outstanding customers service from this company.
High quality knife and great customer service.
I love the design, quality of the fde finish and the amazing steel. Kydex sheath is high quality too.. I'm not a knife guy and this was my first real money spent on a blade but I already want to buy the ronin now ha. I took one star off because it didn't come with the initial razor edge Id expected. I sharpened it and it holds its edge really well but for what I paid I expected a very sharp initial edge.
The Phrike is the perfect balance of size and utility, not too big but big enough to handle most jobs. The G10 handles are grippy, and the blade is super sharp. Perfect for hunting/hiking trips. My new favorite knife!
Excellent fixed blade for EDC. Sheath has a touch too much retention for pocket draw with aftermarket clip, but with the included iwb loop is sufficient. Excellent knife!
Very light weight and extremely concealable yet big enough to get just about any job done. Self defense, hunting, camping this blade does it all!! Bravo
This blade blade is perfect. Amazing quality and sheath is fantastic. I was a little worried that the knife would feel too thin and would become uncomfortable after prolonged use but the G10 inlay scales are great! Yes these knives are a little more expensive than what I usually buy but it's well worth the price.
These people are ridiculous. This is by far the best lightweight self-defense/utility knife I have. Highly recommend buying this and also their V-14 Les George Dagger that thing is also incredible, a work of art really but equally functional. Buy both of them trust. I own almost every single top brand knife you can think of, Cold steel, spyderco, microtech, CRKT, Kershaw, ESEE, name a knife company I have it and Spartan wins.
Its love at first sight. The Phrike fit my palm so beautifully. The lines were so clean, I have many knives but never has one given me such job. Sharp right out of the box. A little fine tuning and it was perfection. The only down side were the handle scales. Perhaps it was the shipping, perhaps it was something else, but a few of the teeth were damaged. Since this knife, I have returned to make 2 more purchases and are waiting for them to arrive. Thank you for a wonderful knife.
Spartan Phrike Self Defense / Utility Knife
According to ancient Greek mythology, Phrike was the goddess of horror and fear. In the ancient Greek language, the word “phrike” literally meant “tremor” or “shivering.” The Spartan Phrike custom self defense knife is certainly an imposing blade: despite its small size, the Phrike stands out as an effective, finely crafted, and perfectly honed tool for both self defense and utility use.
The Spartan Phrike’s small, lightweight blade was designed specifically to be easy to carry for self defense and bushcraft. The knife’s 4.25” blade and minimal inset handle make it comfortable, slim, and highly portable.
The Phrike is an excellent utility knife, and can be carried on a daily basis for managing common tasks. It’s also perfect for the outdoors, and can be taken along on hunting and backpacking trips. In addition to this, the Phrike makes for a phenomenal handcrafted self defense knife, and is ideal to carry for emergencies and unexpected situations.
Available with a nylon MOLLE sheath or Kydex sheath in multiple color options.
Note: the nylon MOLLE sheath option features a military style pull dot fastener (snap). This is perfect if you’re looking for maximum retention capabilities. However, the pull dot style fastener can create wear on the G10 handle inserts if you’re not especially careful with how you carry the knife. Therefore, we recommend placing the lanyard underneath the snap in order to cut down on wear to the Phrike’s handle.
