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.

Sean Kendrick, an accomplished custom knife maker, is the brain behind the muscle with these extra hard use tactical knives. The Bad Blood line from Hallmark Cutlery is a collaboration series based off custom designs by Kendrick. These are some seriously stout tactical folders with impressively thick blades, though not too thick that it would inhibit slicing. The folders feature thick G10 scales, full steel liners for strength, functional jimping and finger choils to lock the knife in place. The fixed blade designs are reminiscent of Mercworx knives with their beefy blades and beautifully contoured handles. They come with molded Kydex sheaths and brightly colored handle spacers to complete the package. These are excellent tactical or camp knives at bargain prices, see for yourself today at www.knifecenter.com.
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.

This knife joins the pantheon of super beefy folders from Cold Steel- along with the Super large Voyagers, The Vaquero Grande, the Extra Large Espada, the Rajah Series and probably some others that don’t come to mind. It is truly amazing
