Description: The Akribis is Spartan Blades' first foray into the folding knife world. The name comes from the Greek word for precise, and is an apt name for this finely crafted folder. This particular piece was hand anodized by David Broadwell for the 2013 USN Gathering, and is one of a kind. This one has been at the back of our safe since it was delivered to us at the 2013 USN Gathering.
Spartan set out to create a knife that embodied all the attributes that a modern folding knife should have. Form, function, and craftsmanship are the result of intense development and refinement. The quality of this folder is easily evident, from the chamfers on the frame to the intricate machining of the blade's jimping.
The Akribis is light weight and is created using only the best of modern materials such as, titanium, double deep cryogenically treated and tempered S35VN blades, carbon fiber, and ceramic bearings. All surfaces are coated with the best PVD coatings available to protect the working surfaces of the blade and frame. A pocket clip set up for tip-up carry is included, and a hole is provided for a lanyard. A dual thumb stud allows easy one-handed opening.
The Akribis is meant to break convention by serving not only as a “tactical” knife but as a blade that can just as easily be carried in business attire. You should be comfortable carrying an Akribis on the battlefield, the boardroom or any of your daily adventures.
