    Amazing design and construction. Waiting for my cqb tool and enyo to add to my new collection. Never knew about spartan blades until I came across one of Tu Lam’s videos.

    Great little Karambit

    Feels very sturdy, great EDC knife, only could have been a little sharper out the box but that can be fixed, still a 5/5 for me.

    Mega Ultra Nice!

    Posted by Mtn. Matty on Dec 10th 2023

    I ordered this knife as a gift for a friend. It arrived quickly and it was nicer than I expected. The handle is thick and sturdy. I like the large and wide ring. The blade is nicely finished and robust. I ordered another one for myself after playing with it for a couple of minutes.

    Imitation

    Posted by E3rd on Sep 25th 2023

    I see that Emerson just came out with a CQB-7 (I believe that's correct)Tanto/karambit design. While I'm sure it's a very fine blade, Tu Lam and Spartan thought it up first. Imitation IS the sincerest form of flattery.

    I liked this blade so much I bought another one a week later. It is one of the most well thought out knives I have ever owned. I don't use any other blades but Spartan and have been a loyal Spartan customer for 10 years. I know I said this before, but anything cheaper than a Spartan blade is inferior and anything more expensive is unnecessary. If you stay with the Spartan line of knives, you will never go wrong.
