If you’ve ever wondered what the ideal tactical “go-to-war” combat knife may be, the Harsey family from Spartan Blades might just be the answer. The Hunter and Model II are classic, functional designs with some hi-tech, new-age features. The full-tang S35VN blades are 3/16″ thick which provides excellent torsional strength and are available in your choice of color. The canvas micarta scales are 3D machined and contoured to give you a firm grip while also offering superb ergonomics in the forward and reverse grips. Many people believe a fixed knife is only as good as it’s sheath and if that’s the case, this is where the Spartan Harsey blades excel. You have the choice between a MOLLE compatible Cordura sheath or one made from Kydex, both lock in the knife extra securely and provide an ample array of carry options. These knives are based loosely off “The Yarborough” fixed blade designed by William Harsey, which is the knife presented to each cadet of the US Army Special Forces Qualification Course upon their graduation. You can see these works of edged art at www.knifecenter.com.

Al Mar Knives Falcon Classic Knives
Al Mar Knives has a classy selection of products. They don’t bring out new models every month like some other companies and they don’t offer every type of product under the sun. But the products Al Mar Knives does offer are all high quality, well made and very well designed. The Falcons have been slightly neglected through the years but, with this new issue, that may have changed. These are the top-of-the-line Al Mars with the solid bolsters and deluxe handle materials.

Al Mar calls this knife the Eagle Classic. They are not kidding. It is as classic an Al
Mar knife as has been seen, probably since the passing of the company’s namesake. From the brass liners, to the seamless matching of blade spine to backspring, the quality in this product is classic Japan – Classic Al Mar. The bolstered black Micarta handles are also reminiscent of product not seen for decades. The Eagle Classic is available in two different blade shapes, and both come with leather pocket sleeves.
