Truly worthy of being in the Elite category. Sturdy, tough, feels very good in the hands.
If you need a combat knife, a utility knife, a SHTF knife, or just like collecting - then stop reading and just buy it already!
Simply best blades out there highly reccomend
Holy goodness, this is pure ergonomic excellence. I have a Difensa as well and I love that knife, this one is just a touch smaller and gives it a better carry presence. Stoked to have both as backups for one another. Spartan Blades is my favorite knife company by far. Amazing service to boot and an excellent warranty.
Solid blade, feels great in the hands. I collect fixed blade knives, out of the 40+ knives I own this blade is so far the most high quality, comfortable, balanced, and best looking knife I own
Everything needed for a great tool, high end steel, superior fit and finish
This is an awesome design. It fits well in your hand and is well balanced. I thought the blade might be too large, but it is not. This is a great blade for multiple purposes from camping, field work, and self defense. It could even be used as an EDC so long as you are not adverse to larger fixed blades. The blade is razor sharp out of the box and I expect it to last a lifetime!
Awesome blade. Couldn’t be happier with it. Sharp edge, nice design, solid overall blade. Highly recommended.
Just received my Ronin Shinto and I’m very pleased with it. The Ergonomics are awesome it really feels good in the hand it’s well balanced and a beautiful knife. The kydex sheath fits perfectly and holds the knife tightly
Quick delivery and right out of the box you can tell the quality and craftsmanship of the blade. I am expecting a lifetime of use from this knife.
