The Cold Steel Spartan 21ST is a tactical folding knife that was given its name for a reason. It is a rock-solid knife that, thanks to the Tri-Ad Lock, won't accidentally close during use. The shape of the blade ensures that the blade will cut through anything at every angle.
The Spartan might remind you of the large fixed Kukri. The tip, however, is smaller to make sure the Spartan can easily pierce through objects. The thumb plate ensures that you can easily open the Spartan with one hand. As such it is perfect for both left and right-handed use. You can also use the thumb plate to automatically open the knife when you take it from your pocket. The plate will get caught behind the fabric of your pocket and will pull out the blade. Might take some getting used to, but it really works.
This version of the Cold Steel Spartan is enhanced with a AUS10A steel blade, while its predecessor has a CTS-BD1 blade. The main differences between both types of steel can be found in sharpness retention. AUS10 will retain its sharpness longer than CTS-BD1, even though you do have to compromise in terms of corrosion resistance.
This knife comes with an additional pocket clip to make sure it is great for both left and right-handed use.
