Spartan, Folding Knife with AUS 10A stainless steel blade
Designed by celebrated custom knife maker Andrew Demko, the Spartan is one of Cold Steel®'s most popular folding knives.
Its super-sharp stonewashed blade is made from AUS 10A steel and was designed to echo the aesthetics and cutting performance of the world-famous Kukri. Its distinctive Kopis-inspired handle is precision injection-molded out of Griv-Ex™ with heat-treated steel liners, and this, in addition to Cold Steel®'s famous Tri-Ad® lock, makes for a knife that is incredibly safe and secure.
The Spartan also features the patented Demko thumb plate, which can be used to open the knife like a conventional one-handed opener or be snagged on the edge of a pocket during the draw stroke and opened at lightning speed!
2019 Model - The Spartan with AUS 10A steel blade replaces the discontinued CTS® BD1 steel version (Product No. CST-21SC).
AUS 10A Stainless Steel
AUS 10A is equal in strength and toughness to AUS 8A, but has the extraordinary advantage of an additional 20% in edge-holding ability. This ability to retain a sharp edge for a longer period of time gives it wider performance advantages over other, more common stainless steels.
