What else needs to be said when a collaboration of two awesome entities that represent a level of hard work, a striving for excellence, and ingenuity come together to craft such an awesome functional and aesthetic knife? Besides this knife is freaking awesome!! Very durable, sleek, and functional. Great size and it’s quite evident while holding this knife in your hand the perfect size, weight, and feel. In conclusion it’s just straight bad ass.
As soon as your pick the knife up you can feel the quality. It’s sturdy, has an excellent and comfortable grip and deploys smoothly and quickly. The edge is nice and sharp right out of the box. Amazing bang for your buck on this one.
This knife is awesome, I love the addition of the wave to come out of the pocket open. When it's in your hand you know you have a quality blade.
Was waiting for this blade to get restocked for a while. I’m so glad I was able to pick one up. This is a solid work horse of a knife. I’ve put it through the ringer the first few days that I’ve had it. It’s passed with flying colors. It’s built extremely well, it’s tough as nails. The blade is sharp and keeps its edge well. The only thing I did to this knife was to loosen the screw that the blade is attached to. I did this so the blade would open easier, and smoother coming out of the pocket. This is a fantastically tough, and rugged knife. I highly recommend it. Spartan blades knocked it out of the park with this knife. Great job guys.
Quality blade and the craftmanship is clearly evident. One of my favorite blades I've collected thus far!
Probably the single most awesome EDC blade I’ve ever owned. I love it’s functionality. I was carrying a Karambit for many years, so I love the finger ring pull, deployment and flip into the reverse grip function. It’s like a heftier version of a good Karambit, but with a straight blade and a Tonto tip. I love it. Huge shout out to Tu Lam @Ronintactics for this amazing design! Thank you, sir!
Right away I noticed the sturdiness of the blade and the quality of the materials used. This is this frost folder I’ve ever owned that felt this comfortable and solid in my hand. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a reliable folder for everyday carry.
It is well made and perfectly balanced which makes it a great EDC. Love how easy it is to deploy and handle.
The art is in the details. Very high-quality blade and workmanship. Perfect weight, well balanced and easy handling.
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.
