Spartan Blades Enyo
Man, I love smallish fixed blades. This is a somewhat newer model from the real-deal guys at Spartan Blades. This is more-or-less a reminder to myself to look into procuring one of these beauties when I can. I don't own one yet, so their site says everything better than I could say it, in a very concise way.
Knife Name: Enyo
Overall Length: 6 1/4"
Blade Length: 2 11/16"
Blade Thickness: 3/16"
Blade Steel: S30V
Blade Hardness: 58-59 HRC
Blade Style: Fixed Drop Point - this design allows for strength of the blade tip by placing it in line with the users hand while keeping the upward curve of the cutting edge.
Coating: SpartaCoat - PVD - ZrN (Flat Dark Earth)
Sheath: Kydex (Tan) with neck chain, IWB loop, and 2' of Para-Cord (550).
Weight: 0.176 LBS (Knife)
These are apparently sold out until later this month. A testament to the popularity and reputation for quality these guys have built in a very short amount of time. Unlike a couple of other popular "mid-tech" or "semi-custom" combat blade companies out there, Carey and Iovito are the real thing, and both apparently have tons of real world military experience all over the globe. *(Inaccurate statement removed here by author, after being contacted by an informed reader)*
Two Americans who have served their country proudly, making some mega badass blades that would be more at home in scary places, than sitting in your safe.
