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.
Suggestions you provide options of:
- Ulticlip for kydex
- hand stone sharpening for all your knives
Meticulously made, perfect thin, light edc...( also the kydex sheath is mint)
Replaced a really nice knife that I used hard for almost 15 years. I can tell already this is an upgrade. Liked it so much I ordered the enyo as well. Very satisfied with both so far. Shipped quickly with a hand written note on receipt. Well done all around.
This is a well balanced, small to medium fixed blade. This has taken the the spot for my home defense firearm back up. I have full confidence in this knife. I love the angles, and kydex sheath. Everything is top notch! Get one!
Amazing blade, you can just tell the people who make these care about their product and customers. If you are debating on ordering this blade just do it, you will not regret it!
I received the knife about a week ago. Build quality is what you would expect from any Spartan Blades Elite level knife. This is my new EDC and hunting knife as the Kydex sheath fits well into my waistband and or pocket. What I really love is the low profile design doesn't grab as much attention as some other large fixed blade knives that I own.
This blade is a must. A little on the larger side for horizontal appendix carry but it's manageable. Had to order another 'Push the Button' strap for a more secure horizontal setup but the one that comes with it works decent.
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.
