Here at the KnifeCenter, we strive to offer you the best edged tools available and we believe these Akribis folders fit that bill nicely. Spartan Blades is well known in the industry for their stout, well built fixed blade designs. The fit and finish on any Spartan Blade is very Chris Reeve-esque with great attention paid to the ergonomics and cutting angle of each knife. The Akribis is their first folding knife and we are very excited about this one. It features titanium handles, with a Rick Hinderer lock bar stabilizer, available in meteorite grey or flat dark earth and your choice of G10 or carbon fiber scales. The 3-1/2″ blade is made from S35VN stainless steel and also comes in your choice of a meteorite grey or black PVC blade coating. The opening action is buttery smooth and the loud click of the lock bar engaging is one sweet sound you’ll definitely appreciate. This is a hard use, tactical folder that’s as at-home in your jeans or khakis as it is on your LBE. There’s no doubt you will be proud to show this knife off to your friends, check them all out at www.knifecenter.com.
