The Spartan Blades Shoto SBSFBL9BK:
The Spartan-Ronin Shoto is a folding karambit liner lock folder. This blade is the result of a collaborative effort between Spartan Blades and TU Lam of Ronin Tactics, our former Special Forces Teammate and good friend.
Having worked throughout Asia and Indonesia, Tu Lam and Spartan have a very healthy respect for the Karambit style. This blade was designed to be incorporated into several forms of martial arts systems.
It features a CTS-XHP tanto blade, “Emerson Wave” feature for ease of opening, and a reversible pocket clip for left-hand carry with black and red G10 scales that provide a sure grip.
All of Spartan’s Bronze (Field) Grade folders incorporate their new “Oil Infused Bronze Bushing System” or “OIBBS”!
Their sintered bronze bushings are impregnated with oil, reducing the friction on the blade, thus giving you a tight but smooth blade opening.
This system is handy for slow speeds, intermittent use, and uneven loads like you’d find on folding knives.
