Great Design! This knife has good heft & is good for chopping as well as standard use. The nylon sheath is good for ambidextrous use. Happy I added it to my collection!
This is my 5th purchase and still very pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of their products. Brought one for my son who will add to his deployment kit. Certainly not the last purchase from this American company.
This is one of the best thought out fighting knives on the market. Everything about it has been designed for one purpose. The more purposes a tool has, the less effective it is at any one task. It is a beautiful equation. Fits perfectly in the hand and the balance is flawless. The blade is just the right length and the handle fills the hand beautifully. The recurve blade reminds me of a kukri in that it has tremendous shearing power. Having studied knife fighting for many years, for me this is the best fighting blade I ever purchased.
One Of The Best Fix Blades Ever Made, Nylon Sheath Is Phenomenal For Horizontal And Side Carry.
Great Knife has the look and feel of something with tradition. Fit and finish the best I have ever seen...Really...Again great balance and feel...Will last you forever. Something to hand down .....
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.
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
Spartan-Rōnin Shintō: Forged in Tradition, Designed for Action
Embrace the spirit of the Spartan-Rōnin Shintō, a combat knife that beautifully balances the essence of old and new design. Inspired by the philosophy of "Shinto," meaning the practice of connecting the ways of the old with the ways of the new, this knife, designed by Tu Lam and Curtis Iovito, stands as a testament to functionality and craftsmanship.
Philosophical Roots: "Shinto" embodies the practice of connecting traditions with contemporary approaches. The Spartan-Rōnin Shintō pays homage to this philosophy, creating a blade that seamlessly merges old and new design elements.
Renowned Designer: Co-designed by Tu Lam, a retired Special Forces soldier teammate of the Spartan Blades founders. Tu Lam's background as a "Green Beret" and his extensive experience in military and law enforcement training make him a respected authority in the field.
Military and Law Enforcement Training: Tu Lam is the driving force behind RONIN Tactics, Inc., an organization that trains top-tier military and law enforcement units globally in hand-to-hand combat and knife techniques. His expertise is further showcased as the Co-Host of The History Channel's "Forged in Fire, Knife or Death” television series.
Blade Construction: The Spartan-Rōnin Shintō boasts a 5 5/8” fixed re-curve blade made from high-performance CPM S45VN steel. The double deep cryo-heat treatment ensures durability, while the physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating, available in Flat Black or Flat Dark Earth, adds a tactical edge.
Handle Excellence: The handle is crafted from Black CE Canvas Micarta®, providing a secure and comfortable grip even in challenging conditions.
Sheath Options: Choose between a lined Nylon MOLLE sheath (available in Black, Coyote Tan, or MultiCam) for versatile carrying options or a Kydex sheath with Belt Loop (available in Black or Coyote Tan) for a secure and streamlined carry.
