Description: Curtis Iovito and Mark Carey, co-founders of Spartan Blades, LLC, possess over 40 years of combined military service and experience.

For years, Curtis has designed and made custom knives for his friends in Special Forces and for other companies.

The Spartan Blades Kranos is a custom quality folder that really shows off what they are capable of. It's no surprise that the Kranos folder was recently awarded the 2017 International Blade Show "American Made Knife of the Year". This folder shows some features that are rarely ever seen in a production knife.
The modified spearpoint blade is made from premium CPM S35VN stainless steel with a stonewash finish. S35VN has tremendous wear resistance coupled with high corrosion resistance and ensures a superior, high performing edge. Jimping along the spine offers an exceptionally secure grip.
The blade deploys using the built-in ambidextrous flipper. Just pull back on the flipper and the razor-sharp blade rotates out of the handle on GTC Alpha bearings for smooth and reliable action. The blade is perfectly centered with no blade play.
The handle combines milled titanium with black G10 inlays. The titanium has been anodized blue to bring flash into an already top notch folder. The inlays surround a partial titanium backbar with a built in lanyard hole. The interior of the knife has been textured in an arrow pattern. The custom Spartan arrow pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
