Description: Curtis Iovito and Mark Carey, co-founders of Spartan Blades, LLC, possess over 40 years of combined military service and experience. Since their retirement from US Army Special Forces they have been involved in the development, marketing, and program management of tactical gear and ballistic armor products. For years, Curtis has designed and made custom knives for his friends in Special Forces and for other companies. Mark and Curtis have combined their shared love of knife making, military experience and knowledge of the tactical equipment market to form Spartan Blades, LLC with a singular mission: “Manufacture finely crafted tactical and field knives.”
Machai is a fitting name for this large chopping tool. In Greek mythology, the Machai were the daemons (spirits) of battle and combat. The heavy weight and re-curved profile of this flat ground blade make for a great chopper. The blade is 1095 Cro-Van carbon steel, hardened to 59-60 Hrc. A black coating prevents light reflection and will help protect the blade.
The Machai's full tang and handle provide for a forward balance in the user’s hand. The ergonomic and textured canvas Micarta handle provides for a comfortable, confident grip when wet or dry.
A molded sheath keeps the knife close at hand. The blade locks in place and is released with a lever.
