    Shipped fast, very balanced knife, feels great in the hand. Fit and finish were awesome, came sharp. Like the sheath, wish it came with different attachment options.

    Never using another knife makers knife again enough said I’ve tried other high quality brands and this knife just blew them out of the water.

    Best quality, balance, feel, grip, shape, ergonomic and true work of art knife I have ever owned. Great company, customer service, keeping you updated as the status of your order and delivery I have ever worked with. Great people, great company, amazing bode.

    great blade and support, poor quality control.

    Posted by Kanen Greiner on Jun 8th 2020

    upon unboxing the knife it seemed like there was some oil on the blade, but as i looked closer it was clear that someone had messed up the dlc coating and it was smudged and then dried, which didn't look good at all. on top of the poor coating, there were scrapes on the blade that let the silver steel color show through. all of this was straight out of the box as well, I just expected ordering a knife directly from them at this price point to have perfect quality control.

    despite all that, their customer service has been outstanding, sending me a return label so i could ship it out to them and they'll ship me a new one. as of writing this review i am waiting for them to ship that new one out.

    even with the cosmetic defects the knife was absolutely amazing, so i can only imagine what it'll be like in perfect condition. I recommend anyone looking for a good fixed blade purchases this one. If you get unlucky like me, at least you can count on their customer service to right the wrongs.

    More than I was expecting, sits and moves well in the hands, nimble and fast, like a pen it goes where directed. Very nice blade.

    Shinto Purchase

    Posted by Ray Stevens on May 15th 2020

    When I received the knife it was dull. Contacted Spartan and they said to return the knife. Sharp as a razor when shipped back. Outstanding customer service. They stand behind their products. Hard to find a company today with this type of customer service.

Spartan-Rōnin Shintō - Shinto meaning, “The practice of establishing a connection between the ways of the old and the ways of the new.” This knife is a great balance of old and new design and form making for a highly functional combat knife. Tu Lam is a retired Special Forces soldier, "Green Beret" and teammate of the Spartan Blades founders during their time in Okinawa where they worked as snipers; Tu Lam was part of an assault troop in the same company. Tu Lam has quickly become the “Go to” authority to military and law enforcement training and is the power house behind RONIN Tactics, Inc., an organization that trains many of the top tier military and law enforcement units in the world in H2H and knife techniques. Tu is also the Co-Host of The History Channels "Forged in Fire, Knife or Death” television series.
