Spartan, Folding Knife with Carpenter CTSÂ® BD1 alloy steel blade
New 2015 Version
The Spartans of old were legendary! A tough breed of warriors who were trained from childhood in the art of war. Engaging them - and
their famous Kopis sword - was something to be feared and avoided at all costs!
Designed by Andrew Demko, Cold Steel's Spartan is a folding Kopis scaled down to accommodate a tamer, more sophisticated world.
Its hollow-ground blade is made from American BD1 alloy steel and was designed to echo the aesthetics and cutting performance of
the world-renowned Kukri.
Its Kopis inspired handle is designed to help resist the pull of centrifugal force and to provide an incredibly safe grip.
Injection-molded out of Griv-Exâ„¢ with heat-treated steel liners for additional strength, it gives a whole new level of security
and peace of mind.
The patented Demko thumb plate can be used to open the knife like a conventional 'one handed opener' or be snagged on the edge of a
pocket during the draw stroke and opened automatically. Additionally, the Spartan features Cold Steel's Tri-Adâ„¢ locking
mechanism, which has proven, when tested, to be almost impervious to stress strain and shock, offering a huge margin of safety
hitherto unseen in the industry.
