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.

Helle is a very cool company and this new Survivor Man series is great. They make amazing products in Norway that are really world class. They use top quality materials for real world use. The wood they use is extraordinary and people give the steel rave reviews. It gets razor sharp and is easy to sharpen. When you get a Helle knife, it arrives in its cardboard tube and the knife is in its sheath with a cleaning cloth over it. The knife fits nice and snug in the formed leather, Their prices are reasonable for top quality products. These Survivor Man items are new and they seem great with a polished blade and oiled wood handles. The grip feels perfect. These are not fancy knives, but are items to be used and depended upon.

New SVORD Folding Pocketknife Models
Svord Knives make great products. They have their Peasant Knives which we have been offering for some time and people love them. Svord Knives has now released this Peasant Knife with aluminum handles. They’re really great folders with very thin profiles. The handle grips the base of the blade to sort of lock it open with a “friction lock” system. They are very reasonably priced and well made. These are made in New Zealand. The carbon steel that they use will take a razor edge.
