    Ferocious full size

    Posted by Connor on Mar 29th 2021

    The Shinto is an insanely capable combatives blade, with length and weight squarely in that full sized sweet spot. For most people, this knife will be smaller than you expect when it arrives - which is a good thing in my opinion.

    You can pretty clearly see some Kiku Matsuda influence in the design via Tu Lam, with a really characteristic spear point recurve. This thing cuts like a demon, punctures like a tanto, and balances very well.

    I have a black one for combatives, a tan one for bushcraft, and an aluminum trainer. All are fantastic.

    Great knife. First time I've spent this much money on a knife in my life and it's worth it. Quality is evident out of the box. Razor sharp edge, clean lines, kydex sheath fits like a glove. Everything is perfect. Can't wait to get in the field now and test it out.

    Doesn’t matter if you are a novice or pro in the knife game, buy it.

    Fantastic craftsmanship as always. Spartan Blades is my go to for top end knife manufacturers. The Shinto does not disappoint.

    To start off, this isn't a review of performance or durability as this blade is being used as a CCW I wanted to write that I was impressed with the design, materials, handling, balance in the hand. I opted for the kydex sheath. The sheath is also well designed and holds knife very securely. I can forsee this blade being a good option for anyone wanting a knife to fill multiple roles.

    Blade for the wilderness

    Posted by Michael on Feb 10th 2021

    This blade is sharp, balanced and well designed. First days of using it my findings were, strikes a ferrocerium off the spine of knife. Processes fatwood (shavings) off spine of knife. Splits hardwoods fine with using the baton method. Chops and hacks, can create 7 notches, tent stakes and finer work using choil or (not) you prefer. Last if I find myself needing it for self defense, it’s capable.

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.
