I absolutely love this knife. The way it opens straight from your pocket is the coolest thing ever. This will be my carry all the time and I’m not sure I’ll ever look for anything different. Awesome work Spartan!
Good hand feel, solid design, like the quick opening feature.
The Shoto is exactly what I've been looking for in a folding karambit style blade. Solid build, flawless deployment of the blade with the Emerson Wave, and it's shaving sharp out of the box.
Excellent quality material, sturdy construction. A bit on the heavier side but overall a great blade. Highly recommend
Price, value, and quality, are unmatched
This is my first knife from them and I am very impressed by how well this was designed and made. The collaboration with Tu Lam resulted in a great EDC knife.
Blade arrived pretty dull and with uneven bevels, and customer support was childish, sarcastic and accepted no responsibility for the poor quality out of the box. Absolutely not what you'd expect for the price.
I was initially unsure about ordering this, but when they came back in stock, I knew I had to pull the trigger. This blade is everything I ever wanted. Its very clear the level of craftsmanship that went into it. Smooth, fast, sleek, incredible. Looking forward to carrying this for years to come.
Exactly what you think coming from Tu and Spartan! Pure excellence from guys that have sacrificed so much. The draw stroke on this knife is a bit different then old carry, so that's going to take some practice. Semper Fi
The Spartan-Ronin Shōtō is a folding karambit liner lock folder. This blade is the result of a collaborative effort between Spartan Blades and TU Lam of Ronin Tactics, our former Special Forces Teammate and good friend.
Having worked throughout Asia and in Indonesia, both Tu Lam and Spartan have a very healthy respect for the Karambit style. This blade was designed to be incorporated into several forms of martial arts systems.
It features a CTS-XHP tanto blade, "Emerson Wave" feature for ease of opening, and a reversible pocket clip for left hand carry with black and red G10 scales provide for a sure grip. Please check out this link to Ronin Tactics HERE.
All our Bronze (Field) Grade folders incorporate our new “Oil Infused Bronze Bushing System” or “OIBBS”! Our sintered bronze bushings are impregnated with oil which reduces the friction on the blade, thus giving you a tight but smooth blade opening. This system is especially useful for slow speeds, intermittent use, and uneven loads such as are found on folding knives.
