All I can say is wow! This blade instills confidence. I am not in the military and probably (hopefully) never have to use this knife, but I can’t imagine a better tool for its intended purpose. Very high quality materials are apparent as soon as you open the box and the blade of course comes with very sharp edges and a needle sharp point. If I were in the business of combat this would be my go-to blade for CQB. However, for me, it is a nice addition to my collection.
No finer tool on the market, for its purpose. A tribute to the historical tools of the past, but designed and developed for the battlefield of the twenty-first century. A solid choice of distinction, with world-class craftsmanship. DOL Brothers!!!
The George V-14 dagger is the finest dagger that I have ever held. The quality of both blade and handle is impeccable. This is a dagger that will do it's duty and more.
I fell in love with daggers a few years ago. Have purchased a few over the past years. This spartan v14 dagger is by far one of the best quality daggers in my collection. Full tang construction. Very nice grinds. Top quality scales. When you hold this in your hand it inspires quality and confidence. If I had to pick one blade to take to battle this would be on the top of the list. Strictly anti-personnel. Not for utility. I am glad I picked this blade up over two years ago.
Beautiful piece of art, especially in combination with the leather sheeth
When I first hefted the blade all anxieties of my upcoming deployment were relieved. The grip and weight balance feel confident in my hand. This blade will now be my primary side. I hope to never have to use it, but am confident it will serve well if needed. God bless America and God bless Spartan Blades. The fabrication is exceptionally well and the edge is fine. Even the Kydex sheath is top notch craftsmanship. I would take this blade over the Fairbairn-Sykes.
I am a US Marine and I carry a dagger in my armor whenever I go overseas because daggers scare the hell out of Americas enemies.
Marines have carried daggers in combat since Vietnam because daggers are the most lethal blades available. This is the best dagger ever made.

incredibly sharp blade but with a very sturdy fuller makes this one very tough knife, I thought it might be a little flimsy toward to front of the blade taper but its as solid as this company and its customer service. Thanks Spartan
What a work of art, mixing both durability and ruggedness with beautiful craftsmanship and a keen edge. I look forward to putting this awesome dagger to good use...
Spartan-George V-14 Dagger
The Spartan-George V14 Dagger is Spartan Blades’ first collaboration with the gifted and prolific knifemaker Les George.
Beginning with the formation of the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) following the end of World War 2, daggers have come to symbolize the most elite of our military special operations units and intelligence agencies. With the Spartan-George V-14 Dagger, our goal was to create a custom combat knife that improved upon a classic profile with better materials and a more thoughtful design.
The V-14 features a full-tang design combined with a 0.25 inch precision ground thickness, making for a very reliable blade. Each of these handcrafted combat knives is first hollow ground with four symmetrical bevels, then vacuum heat treated, double deep cryogenically treated and double tempered. The end result is added edge retention and toughness, thus fixing the classic durability problem that has plagued military combat daggers in the past.
In addition to an extremely high quality blade, the Spartan-Georgie V-14 combat dagger features an ergonomic and textured handle specifically designed for maximum comfort and a confident grip. This is where we opted to diverge from tradition, choosing an oblong handle with flats on each side to assist in the indexing and use of the knife during times of limited visibility. Simply put, this is a true combat dagger!
