Incredible dagger,I've purchased some quality blades from Spartan but this is my favourite of all.
This blade surpassed my expectations. Feels great in my hand. Well thought out design and made well.
This is a beautiful knife, well made and finished.
Just received my dagger - fast delivery 3 days after ordering, even while I'm OCONUS. The quality of the materials and workmanship is evident the moment you hold this knife. Incredibly sharp right out of the box. The kydex sheath has just the right amount of retention. The only thing I would say as a potential improvement would be retaining loops on the sheath's MOLLE webbing straps so that it can be adjusted to fit smaller regular belts or smaller-than-spec MOLLE (on some MOLLE war belts, for example). Overall the design is incredibly well thought out and executed perfectly. Is this a better knife than I will ever really need? Absolutely. Will I ever regret buying it? Absolutely not.
What a beautiful product! Perfect balance. Great edge. A+. Highly recommend.
Absolutely flawless, looks even better in person. Top shelf handmade item, and the craftsmanship is apparent. Such flawless execution I will likely get one in black as well, even though I have no real need for two...
Extremely well made. Flawless finishes.
The Spartan V-14 is a work of art. It should be in a shadow box frame and not used. Outstanding!
Local knife shop owner showed me his Spartan knife (although he didn't carry it at his shop). He is a self professed metal nerd and was raving about this knife, which convinced me to purchase one. The knife is bad ass and came sharp but I spent a few minutes getting it razor sharp, as only wanted this for one purpose and not for daily use. I feel confident this knife could get me out of a sticky situation if ever needed.
Spartan-George V-14 Dagger
WINNER - BLADE 2014 Collaboration Knife of the Year
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!
