The Spartan Ares fixed blade knife is a tactical knife that embodies strength, precision, and cutting power. Designed more like a belt-knife with a long, false top edge, the Ares is ready to work like a fighting knife with its sleek-shaped 5.375" blade and overall length of 10.5".
Crafted from stainless CPM S35VN steel and protected with a SpartaCoat DLC (flat black) finish and a Kydex lined nylon sheath, this knife can endure the elements as well as any punishment you are willing to dish out. The blade allows for added power through its slightly recurve blade design, which allows for deeper, more powerful cutting.
The machined G-10 handle produces a positive grip. The black kydex sheath keeps your knife where you need it, and ready to use, whether it is in the field, hunting, camping, or for tactical use.
The lifetime warranty ensures the quality of these blades. It's a go-to knife you can always trust. Proudly made in the USA!
As soon as I saw the Spartan Blades Ares, I knew it was "the one". For what it is intended for, it's perfect in every way in my opinion, but these things are very personal preferences. The weight & balance is spot on where it should be. FWIW, I got the black on black with the kydex sheath option, and the left side of the blade had some scratches, but I'm not a collector, or knife polisher, so there was no way I was going to return it. The finish on the blade is somewhat delicate in the sense that it will scratch fairly easily, but this does not bother me at all. Even though it's a very beautiful knife, for me it is a tool first. The retention on the sheath is just right, can be carried upside down under normal circumstances, without coming out, yet pulls out very smooth. This will not be my last Spartan Blades knife, next on my list is the Harsey Dagger.
