Originality, high quality, and high functionality are what you can expect from all of the award-winning knifemaker Bill Harsey's designs, so there's nothing out of the ordinary with the new Spartan Harsey Folding Knife. Made by Spartan Blades right here in the US, this knife's beautiful and minimalist design, paired with its superb blade and titanium handle, is striking, to say the least.
A quality knife is a multipurpose tool. Whether you're a die-hard camper, fisherman, knife enthusiast, or just interested in a little extra protection, you won't find yourself disappointed with this 4" inch large, stainless S45VN steel blade. The high-quality American-made particle steel is stonewashed to hide scratching, sharp as a razor, it comes equipped with dual blue anodized titanium thumb lugs for ambidextrous convenience and phosphor bronze bushing to ensure a smooth open and close.
The Spartan Harsey Folder or SHF has a reliable framelock construction and the entire handle is made from thick slabs of stonewashed titanium. It even comes complete with a titanium pivot and titanium fittings. But the devil's in the details, and this thing has it all, including a reversible titanium pocket clip. The lock bar on this frame locking folding knife has an internal lock bar stabilizer that prevents the lock from over-traveling its normal range of movement. This makes it great for carrying around concealed and comfortably. The use of blue anodized titanium in the screws, standoffs, and thumb studs may add cost but creates a custom quality that can't be beaten. It's the ideal tool for anyone wanting something to carry around day-to-day.

It is a VERY impressive knife. Well built very much like Chris Reves "architecture". I was told by Knife Art that Harsey works with CR on their designs too so no surprise...On the construction, feel in hand, and operation, on par with CR, but Knife Art told me CR maintains tighter tolerances in manufacturing FWIW. Not being a knife "guru I can't sense the difference. Price is on par more or less with CR also.
Where it falls short in a significant way vs CR is the finish. It almost looks like it is unfinished (again, I have little knife fabrication knowledge so take "unfinished" with a grain of salt). The unfinished look is materially more apparent in hand vs the internet picture. The blue titanium "hardware" on this version I got does help give some "eye-relief" to the finish which looks like the surface of a piece of Aluminum Foil (and the dull side of the foil at that). So the blue HW does adds to the aesthetic presentation a (little)...And come on Spartan, take another "hint" from Chris R., at least provide a lanyard with the knife at these price-points. This knife especially with a slippery finish certainly needs one!
