Dear Valued Customer, 24 July, 2019
It is our pleasure to announce Pineland Cutlery, Inc. a joint venture between Spartan Blades and KA-BAR Knives. Spartan Blades will now be a division of Pineland Cutlery, Inc.. Pineland will be developing and offering a wide range of cutlery and tools. Pineland Cutlery dba Spartan Blades is headquartered in Southern Pines, North Carolina.
So, what does this mean to you? While Spartan Blades will now be a division of Pineland, Inc. the customer service, relationships, and quality knives you are accustomed to will not change.
Our partnering will KA-BAR Knives will combine the core competencies of both companies to bring a diversity of cutlery offerings to the knife market. You should expect to see not only more custom models but lower price point products as well!
Over the next year you should expect to see our knives presented in three distinct product groups:
Gold packaging = Elite Grade Silver Packaging = Pro Grade Bronze = Field Grade
Elite (Gold Grade) These are the knives you have associated with Spartan Blades from the beginning! Made in the United States, using premium steel, double deep cryogenically treated, and premium PVD coatings. This line will also contain custom, limited edition, and one off knives made by our North Carolina shop.
Silver (Pro Grade) These are knives that will be made in the United States in both our North Carolina and New York facilities. The purpose of these blades is to provide a quality knife to soldiers and outdoorsman at an affordable price point. Materials will include steels like 1095 CROVAN and 420HC for example. You will be able to buy these direct or from one of our select dealers.
Bronze (Field Grade) These are knives that will be made with international partners. They will be made to fulfill the numerous request from you, our valued customers. This was a difficult decision for us to make. We believe that we needed to address the overwhelming requests by customers to provide “knifes that I can afford” We will always use local, U.S.A., and friendly nation manufactures. These knives will be available to you direct or from of our select dealers
Pineland Cutlery has several new products that we will be rolling out over the next year and you will be the first know!
Without your faithful support of two soldiers who started with a dream and a mule barn, we would be where we are today. THANK YOU!
