For the last three years of my life, I have carried as an EDC my Cold Steel Spartan. I have been in a love affair with this knife, serving in the military. But by far the best reactions I have ever gotten, pulling this rather large folder out of my pocket was one of my Sergeants saying ” Why in the world would you want to carry a sword around in your pocket?!” In which I replied I’m a little guy and I need a big knife.
This wicked 4 and 1/2 inch, 4mm thick, Japanese AUS 8 steel blade, is modeled after the famous Spartan sword. This blade, depending on the year purchased, has either a bead blasted or stone washed finish with “Spartan” and “Cold Steel” laser engraved on opposing sides. As consistent with Cold Steel products, the HCR is between 58-60. The immense strength and cutting power behind this blade is rivaled by none.
The handle of this knife is ergonomically sound. It is a 6 inch grivory handle with steel liner inlays. it has been designed to aggressively stay in your hand, whether soaking wet or in a fight. This knife will not slip.
This knife has a quick deploy pocket catch which allows for consistent fast one-handed deployment of the knife. In addition, this knife has a reversible pocket clip so that it can be carried either right handed or left handed. The Spartan has been gifted with Cold Steel’s coveted Triad lock. This lock has been field tested and proven multiple times to be the strongest most reliable lock. This knife is essential in anyone’s arsenal. Whether you use it for combat, survival, or even just as an everyday carry, this knife will not fail you.
