The Spartan Blades George V14 Dagger is a tough dagger, designed by Les George. Enthusiasts will immediately notice that George became inspired by the famous Fairbairn-Sykes and Applegate daggers which were used in many wars in the previous century. This dagger has a slightly similar blade and even the handle might remind you of those knives.
The blade is made from a 6.3 mm thick piece of CPM S35VN steel. Even with modern CNC milling machines it is incredibly difficult to make the bevels even. There are, after all, 4 bevels on a dagger such as this. It is amazing to see they were successful with this knife.
The handle is made from G10. An incredibly strong and sustainable composite material made from synthetic resin and glass fibres. Incredibly strong and light-weight. Because of the semi-circular cut-out on the flat sides you have a very natural place to place your thumb. The massive knife guard ensures that your hands won't end up on the blade.
This Spartan V14 Dagger comes with a strikingly beautiful kydex sheath. The kydex material is very thick and nicely finished. At the back you will find an adjustable nylon belt loop, even though you could also attach a clip or TekLok with the many different mountings eyes.
Many different producers already (re)produced this type of dagger. However, you will rarely find the quality and finish of this Spartan George V14 Dagger. This knife won the 'Best Collaboration' award at the 2014 Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. An eye catcher for your display case.
