Description: The Spartan Harsey Difensa (named for the famous battle fought by the Canadian/US First Special Service Force during WWII in Italy) is an excellent choice for all around field or battlefield use. Spartan was asked to make a knife for a Canadian special operations force that would serve them well in the north woods of their homeland and on worldwide deployments alike.
The spear point profile is flat ground with a tapered top edge that provides for an excellent cutting edge with good tip strength and penetration balance. The blade is made from American made CPM-S35VN with a black PVD ZrN coating. This fine-grained powdered metallurgical steel is tough, chip resistant and can be sharpened to a razor edge. Deep jimping provides a very comfortable thumb purchase.
The Difensa's full tang and handle provide a neutral balance in the user's hand. The ergonomic and textured canvas Micarta handle was modified from the Harsey Model II (no rear jimping), and provides for a comfortable confident grip when wet or dry.
The Harsey Difensa is for people who put their lives on the line and need a knife that won't fail them.
