    Phrike

    Posted by T. Robertson on Sep 29th 2023

    This knife Is perfect for someone who wants a concealable fixed blade for EDC. Not only can it be used for personal defense but it also doubles as an extremely lightweight and versatile utility knife. Came sharp enough to shave with out of the box. The fit and finish of the knife are top notch. Kydex sheath is rock solid and holds the knife very securely. Sheath comes with a pull the dot belt loop that can be removed and supplemented with whatever mounting accessories you want. Overall a great knife that is perfect for everyday EDC and concealed carry for defensive purposes

    Partially Unsharpened

    Posted by Gavin Holman on Jan 7th 2023

    The knife itself is a solid little thing, the sheathe's a bit tight but that'll work in over time, the big reason I'm not giving this a higher rating is because out of the box, a good 1/3rd of the blade from the tip down was completely blunt, I don't mean unsharpened, I meant a visibly flat, blunt edge. I fixed it with an ~hour and a half and some whetstones, but at the price point and from a company I was told was reputable, this shouldn't be happening. I have one other knife in S45VN and it's a great steel, holds an edge for a very long time with minimal maintenance, but this also means it was fairly difficult to sharpen the blunt portion of the edge I received, so it goes both ways. Cosmetically I'm a fan of the design, the jimping is functional and well placed, the G10 grip insert provides good traction despite the thin profile of the knife, and the PVD FDE coating is smooth, consistent, and appealing, the included monkey-fist-ended lanyard loop is a nice touch. Hopefully if you choose this blade you'll receive a better example of Spartan's worksmanship than I did, because this -should- be a great knife under more ideal circumstances.

    Interesting little knife. Would have been nice if it had passed a simple paper slice test right out of the box, but that's fixable with some time on the stones. Regardless, I did expect it to be sharp right out of the box, given the hype. Seems to be great materials. I'm a huge fan of S45VN steel.

    Phrike

    Posted by Yorak Hunt on Mar 11th 2022

    I drooled over this knife for 6 years before I broke down & bought it. A work of art that exudes quality. I showed it to my buddy without telling him what it was & his first words were "I want to put on the lanyard just so I don't drop it." When I told him it was the Phrike from Spartan Blades, he said "well that explains it."

    Astonishingly light and nimble blade

    Posted by Tom on Dec 4th 2021

    This knife is fantastic. I bought this to replace a HFB. I’ve been impressed with all my Spartan blades but this is a new high mark. It’s balanced and light, feels good and quick in the hand, and seems very sturdy. I’ve mostly carried it for self-defense so far but I look forward to using it in the field for hunting.
