The Spartan Blades Ares knife was designed with the input of the U.S. Special Operations Forces and other government agencies and designed by Curtis Iovito and Mark Carey. The 'Ares' was designed for the modern warrior as both a fighting and utility knife. The knife is coated with a physical vapor deposition process of PVD DLC Flat Black SpartaCoat. The Ares 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 name of this knife, Ares, is the god of war in Greek mythology. The knife package is completed with a tan nylon MOLLE sheath, lanyard with Spartan helmet bead (specially included with the Spartan Blades that KnifeArt.com sells) and a lifetime warranty.
