    Imitation

    Posted by E3rd on Sep 25th 2023

    I see that Emerson just came out with a CQB-7 (I believe that's correct)Tanto/karambit design. While I'm sure it's a very fine blade, Tu Lam and Spartan thought it up first. Imitation IS the sincerest form of flattery.

    I liked this blade so much I bought another one a week later. It is one of the most well thought out knives I have ever owned. I don't use any other blades but Spartan and have been a loyal Spartan customer for 10 years. I know I said this before, but anything cheaper than a Spartan blade is inferior and anything more expensive is unnecessary. If you stay with the Spartan line of knives, you will never go wrong.

    Lethal Beauty

    First, this is the most substantial folder I think I've ever held. Beefy is a good way to describe it. The knife itself is all business and for the untutored like me there will be a learning curve in mastering the draw technique. I would suggest an online training segment but with practice it will eventually be fine. If you're looking for concealment in a defensive blade then this one is a very strong choice. It is a very high quality blade from form to function. And you can't beat the. Price.
