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.
Spartan's Horkos is a new addition to their already renowned fixed blade line-up. The Horkos is a sacred oath and the protector of honor/oaths in Greek language and myth. This knife was commissioned by the Combat Weapons Team of the United States Military Academy (West Point, NY) to honor the graduating class. As all academy graduates are defenders of our freedom and take a sacred oath to the US constitution, Spartan found the name fitting!
This blade is designed to be a great all around combat and utility knife. The steel is high performing CPM S35VN (59-60 HRC) with a black Tungsten DLC coating. Blade shape is a drop point with a significant finger choil and guard. A lanyard is attached and an extra finger space and grooved thumb ramp assist with a sure grip. The handle scales are black canvas Micarta, secured with three screws and deeply checkered for a non-slip grip. The handle and knife is light, flat, and comfortable.
The Horkos is accompanied by a very nice-fitting matching kydex sheath.
