    very disappointed

    Posted by Ron on Mar 2nd 2022

    The most disappointing knife purchase I have ever made. I have spoken with Spartan Customer Service twice. Both times the customer service folks I spoke with were friendly, helpful, and easy to work with. The first time was because the retention strap that came with the leather sheath was too short and could not reach the snap. They offered to send me a replacement strap the next day - no problem. The second call to customer service was because the knife was not at all sharp. Nothing close to sharp. I spoke with customer service and they explained that due to the geometry of the blade, they could not get it as sharp as their other knives... I was disappointed to hear this as the knife is quite dull (except for the very sharp tip of the knife). Later, I was trying to cut some standard parachute cord with the knife - nothing fancy, just a short piece to work as a tether until the replacement retention strap arrived. I suppose that I was starting to allow my frustration get the better of me, but I ended up pulling so hard trying to cut this cord that when it eventually gnawed its way through the cord the knife swung wide and clipped a tool sitting next to me on the bench. This chipped the tip right off. It is a very small chip. Hard to see without magnification - but definitely knocked the tip right off. The cord was never cleanly cut, but rather a frayed mess. I have ruined this knife and wasted my money. I will probably try to sharpen it and get rid of the chip, but really I want to just get rid of this knife, the pricey leather sheath, accept the loss of money and the disappointment and try to put this whole experience behind me.

    Amazing quality, fast service

    Posted by Doug on Sep 5th 2021

    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.

    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...

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!
