The Nyx knife is named for the goddess of darkness and night, and the blade lives up to its shadowy name. This knife is designed for combat or as a utility and field knife. For tasks in the field such as dressing game or setting up a shelter or blind, this knife delivers. The Nyx, made by Spartan Blades, is made for the military, but useful for anyone looking for a great all-around knife, the Nyx's 5 1/8" CPM S35VN steel blade and performance is unmatched in the field.
The knife is coated with a physical vapor deposition process of DLC - diamond like coating - which Spartan Blades calls is Flat Black SpartaCoat. The Nyx design features a filed thumb ramp on the top of the blade and index finger guard on the handle. The design also features an exposed tang in the rear of the knife and a long false top edge. The coating keeps the RC 58-59 Crucible S35VN stainless steel both protected and non-reflective.
The knife package is completed with a black nylon MOLLE sheath, lanyard with Spartan helmet bead (specially included with the Spartan Blades that KnifeArt.com sells) and a lifetime warranty.
