The Spartan Formido is a low profile tactical fixed blade knife that is ready for the field. Designed by former US Army Special Forces solider, Curtis Iovito, the knife has a solid 3.875-inch steel blade coated with black DCL (diamond-like carbon) or FDE (flat dark earth) for a sleek finish. The skeletonized blade of stainless CPM S35VN steel makes the knife lightweight for easy handling and effectiveness in backup applications. Due to its slimness, you can carry it comfortably and deploy fast when need be. The straight back blade Formido comes with Kydex sheath with rubber belt loop snap attachment. The American-made knife weighs only 4.7 oz.
