Right out of the box I noticed how sharp it was and how light it feels in your hand. Another excellent knife from Spartan. I'm afraid I'm hooked and may never buy another brand of knife.
It's everything that it was described as
Great blade! customer service is quite prompt as well. Hope yours is actually sharp!
I bought this blade for protection and Utility purposes (most likely field dressing game). At this moment I do not carry a firearm and a video I saw TU do on Ronin Tactical's YouTube page helped me realize something, "If I am not carrying something to defend myself, then why not?". I did my research and figured the Phrike would fit well into my hand and be small enough not to disrupt my movement when I am carrying it. I have only had it for a couple weeks and carry it while I am working and travelling. The blade had a great out of the box edge, so no wet stone work was required. The grip is great and the tungsten finish on the blade looks great. Thank you for the great quality control!
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.
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.
