Beautiful piece... absolute work of art!
This is a superb knife. Almost a shame to use it and mess the fine finish. Use will really only add character, but it's sure is nice when new. The quality of the dagger is self evident when you first pick up the knife. The balance and ease of the fit is natural. I have size large hands and the knife fits perfect. As with most of the rest of life, "You get what you pay for". In this case money very well spent!
The type of quality one would expect from Spartan Blades. Certainly wont be the last purchase. I collect knives and had always wanted a quality dagger. Better than expected.
The product was packaged very well. Taking it out of the box was like opening a Christmas Day present when I was a kid.
This is the highest quality blade I ever bought, and I'm totally satisfied.
Bravo Zulu Spartan Blades / Les George.
So good I bought 2!
I bought the knife this month, and it is by far my favorite I’ve owned. The blade is amazing, grip is rock solid, and the sheath works very well.
This is a nice looking knife, have a good grip. Only concern I have is it not as sharp as other knives I own. Also wonder if they offer sharping service.
This is truly a warrior's knife. The craftsmanship on it is like no other knife I've ever held. To me it's both a work of art, but also incredibly functional for its purpose and my GTW knife for my P-Carrier if things get hairy and my primary is pinned down or something. Can't think of a knife I'd rather have in close-q than this. I'm normally weary of daggers because being slicey is very important to me, but they pulled it off and this thing is plenty slicey for its intended use. Worth every penny
Extremely sharp tip. Perfect balance and control.
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!
