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, the 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. It's 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-Ex polymer 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 Sparta features the Tri-Ad 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.
