Outstanding blade, and certainly good for its intended use, highly recommend it for EDC depending on which sheath you use, I think the kydex is he best choice for EDC with this blade, but certainly a good self defense knife.- Great knife,- looking forward to future- purchases from Spartan knives.
I have had this knife for a little over a year now and it is still just as sharp as the day it came in the mail. I carry this knife with me everywhere I go and no one is the wiser. The kydex sheath works perfectly and is easy to extract without being so loose that I worry the knife might fall out. I even purchased one for my brother for his birthday last week he was the one who introduced me to spartan blades. We both love our phrike and will continue to highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great quality knife.
Quick service and a fantastic product. I expected nothing less from former United States Army Green Berets. Thank you gentlemen for your service and your continued pursuit of excellence in quality knife making.
The phrike is absolutely outstanding. Really easy to conceal and carry on your person. Beautiful construction and the sheath it comes with is just as good! I have searched for the perfect edc fixed blade and I believe I have found it! I found slight blemishes on the blade to where it looks like oil is on the coating, also there is a tiny piece of metal that is still connected to the sharpening choil that wasn’t cut off. Other than those two very minute imperfections, the phrike is perfect!
Anything that costs less than a Spartan blade is inferior. Any blade that costs more is unnecessary. The Phrike is an excellent self defense blade. I wear mine right around my neck. I have never found a blade that could equal a Spartan.
Perfect medium size knife! Flatter handle makes it easy to carry when running trails and around town concealed. Perfect sheath makes it quick to access. Very satisfied. Its a well made knife. Easy to carry so I will carry it. Large enough to do some damage if some critter goes after me on trail.
Would e super cool if you guys would make a scale model replica of the Horkos in this 8.5” length also! The Phrike is an awesome knife guys, keep up the quality work! Both thumbs up from me!
This knife is such high quality , fits perfect in the had , no discomfort at all , perfect for scout carry in my duty uniform. Love this knife it suits me for EDC in uniform. Quality of scales and steel will let me hand this down to future generations
The Phrike is another excellet product from Spartan Blades. I'm continually amazed at the attention to detail, the quality steel is a true delight. I put my new Phrike to my Shapton Glass HC 6000 grit, and then my leather Strop with micro fine honing compound. The edge is so sharp it would make Hattori Hanzo of Kill Bill fame jealous.
If I had to say one thing negative about the Phrike, its that the handle grip is a bit small. I have medium sized hands and normally have no problems with any grips. I went ahead and did a decent reverse wrap, tuck and fly tying knot with some cord and the fit is better for me now.
I am very happy with every purchase I've made with Spartan Blades. I gladly recommend them to anyone who wants superior quality in knife construction.
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.
