Spartan Blades Releases two new folding knives, the Astor and the Talos.
The ASTOR is our first folding knife collaboration with prolific knife maker Les George. The ASTOR was built as a robust “Work Horse” of a knife! From its carbon fiber G-10 composite scales, thick liner-lock, and high ground premium CTS-XHP blade steel, the ASTOR is the perfect knife for those jobs requiring an extra bit of toughness. The deep carry pocket clip can be configured for left hand carry by switching to the left side and using the dual thumb studs. All at an affordable price!
All our Bronze (Field) Grade folders incorporate our new “Oil Infused Bronze Bushing System” or “OIBBS”! Our sintered bronze bushings are impregnated with oil which reduces the friction on the blade, thus giving you a tight but smooth blade opening.
This system is especially useful for slow speeds, intermittent use, and uneven loads such as are found on folding knives.
The TALOS Folder is a lightweight liner lock designed by our friend and collaborator William W. Harsey Jr. Its slim lightweight design makes it the perfect companion for everyday carry and tasks.
While small, its thoughtful design, premium CTS-XHP blade, and deep carry pocket clip, will handle most day to day tasks with ease.
Whether you are standing knee deep in a trout laden creek or on your way to work, this small companion knife fits the bill.
