Spartan Blades Akribis - Folding Knife
Blade: Meteorite Gray
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.

Crucible: CPM S35VN:
CPM S35VN is a martensitic stainless steel designed to offer improved toughness over CPM S30V. It is also easier to machine and polish than CPM S30V. Its chemistry has been rebalanced so that it forms some niobium carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Substituting niobium carbides for some of the vanadium carbides makes CPM S35VN about 15-20% tougher than CPM S30V without any loss of wear resistance. CPM S35VN’s improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.
Because both vanadium and niobium carbides are harder and more effective than chromium carbides in providing wear resistance, the CPM stainless blade steels offer improved edge retention over conventional high chromium steels such as 440C and D2. The transverse toughness of the CPM grades is four or more times that of 440C and 154CM. The CPM process produces very homogeneous, high quality steel characterized by superior dimensional stability, grindability, and toughness compared to steels produced by conventional melting practices.
