I have a real problem with knives. So another knife is hardly worth mentioning in my world. However, this one deserves some praise. The latest acquisition is the Spartan. Let me just say this about Spartan; they are in the customer service business. The current version of this knife has a flipper assist tab, which I do not like. Someone on another forum suggested contacting them to see if they had any older blades left over that they would be willing to install on a new knife for me. I sent an email and they responded that they did. I sent back an email asking how I would order it and they sent back a reply telling me to call them. Before I could call them to place the order (2 hours after receiving their reply) they were already building my knife. I received it in just a few days. They are top notch people. The knife; well the knife fears no other knife. Period.
