Great knife. Perfectly weighted and a good feel in the hand. Well worth the money.
Amazing feel, weight, balance. Great blade as EDC or other.
This blade is amazing! It´s beyond my expectations. I really enjoy the smoothness of the metal and at the same time the incomparable sharpness. Is just the best blade i have got in my hands. Thank you all for providing us with your unique products.
Ronin shinto blade
Blade came a day early which is great. Package nicely and I love the blade all around, kydex sheath looks great and blade feel secure in it. Thank you
Awesome tool as expected. Highest quality and flawless design. Well done!
The knife is amazing and feels great in my hands and have some big hands. One problem is the sheath, it scratches the blade near the edge but that’s it.
Such a meticulously crafted blade. Clean lines, well balanced and well constructed. Something you know you'll have with you for a long while. First of many Spartan blade's I will be purchasing. As long as they're in stock.
Ronin Shinto Knife
I am very pleased with this knife. It arrived well packaged and ready to go. The knife is very well balanced, and the handle texture feels very good in the hand. The blade (dark earth) was quite sharp but needed a little extra and some honing to make it scarry sharp. The nylon padded sheath (coyote) was just what I was looking for. The sheath is not overly large and clumsy. The padding makes the knife slide smoothly and quietly...excellent. I'm generally not a recurve blade fan, but I thought I'd give it a try and find it just right and handy for many tasks. I strongly recommend this knife.
