Akribis – Greek for Sharp and Precise, is a fitting name for this finely crafted folding knife. This titanium and S35VN folder is the fruition of intense development and refinement. Spartan set out to create a knife that embodied all that is right in a modern folding knife. Form, function, and craftsmanship are all words that come to mind when you hold this knife. During the development of Akribis, Spartan reached out to the best and brightest in the industry for guidance and technical insight that is very evident when holding this knife. The Akribis was put through a series of refinements, engineering reviews and changes that culminated in this precision cutting tool. The craftsmanship of this folder is self-evident, from the chamfers on the frame to the intricate machining of the blades jimping.
The Akribis is light weight and is created using only the best of modern materials; such as, titanium, double deep cryogenically treated and tempered S35VN blades, and ceramic bearings in the locking bar to ensure positive closing bias for tip up carry. All surfaces are coated with the best PVD coatings available to protect the working surfaces of the blade and frame.
The Akribis is meant to break convention by serving not only as a “tactical” knife but as a blade that can just as easily be carried in business attire. You should be comfortable carrying an Akribis on the battlefield, the boardroom or any of your daily adventures.
