FEATURES: This 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 'Phrike' was designed for the modern warrior as both a self defense and utility knife. The knife is coated with a physical vapor deposition process of Zirconium Nitride (ZrN) which Spartan Blades calls is Dark Earth SpartaCoat. The Phrike design features a filed thumb ramp on the top of the blade for a secure grip. The design also features an exposed tang in the rear of the knife with a lanyard hole and lanyard. The coating keeps the RC 58-59 Crucible S35VN stainless steel both protected and non-reflective. The name of this knife, Phrike, is the goddess of horror / fear 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.
