    Phenomenal

    The knife oozes quality.
    Ordered both the kydex and the cordura sheathes, both excellent. Secure fits, no rattle, quiet draw.
    Wouldn't mind a version with a 7" blade for personal preference, but this one balances exceptionally well. Can't say enough good things about it.

    It's got a place on my battle-bra a will be taking it to Africa with me.

    A very well - made, balanced and comfortable knife. I have a few custom made and high-end knives and this to date is my favorite knife. The quality and workmanship is phenomenal. I am very pleased with my purchase.

    Excellent Knife

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 8th 2017

    This is a top-quality tactical field knife, made with a great steel and attention to detail. I went with the green canvas and flat dark earth blade finish. Paired up with the coyote brown kydex sheath, this is a very earth-toned knife which would blend into any environment.

    made in USA

    Recently, while sorting my dad's souvenirs, a noticed a knife I know since I was a kid. The character " U.S.A. " is still barely legible.
    He must got it at the end of WW2, while getting his B25 pilot training back then.
    Glad that I now also own an excellent USA made blade - to keep this family tradition going.

    Top survival and combat knife!

    The balance the handle the blade are just unbelievable! If I had purchased this years ago I would have not bought another knife , period! True craftsmanship at its finest and on top of that very affordable. The last great point about this product is that it is built in the U.S.A. The difensa is Top knotch!

Spartan Harsey Difensa

In 1943, a battle was fought between the U.S. / Canadian First Special Service Force and German troops in Italy. Known as the Battle for Monte la Difensa, the courageous performance of U.S. and Canadian forces here was essential to the eventual Allied victory in Italy.

When the Canadian special forces commissioned Spartan Blades and master knifemaker William Harsey to produce a blade for them, we knew we wanted to create something special. Our goal was to craft a knife that would serve their special forces well in the years to come -- both in the northern woods of their homeland and on worldwide deployments alike. The result was the Spartan Harsey Difensa, named after the infamous and hard-fought victory achieved by cooperation between Canadian and U.S. forces.

The name speaks to this custom tactical knife’s excellent all-around field and battlefield use. The spear point profile of this handcrafted knife is flat ground, with a tapered top edge that makes for excellent tip strength, penetration balance, and sheer cutting ability.

The full tang and handle of the Spartan Harsey Difensa allow for a neutral balance in the user’s hand. Combined with the textured, ergonomic canvas Micarta handle -- modified from our Model II with no rear jimping -- this custom combat knife offers the wielder a comfortable, confident grip whether wet or dry.
