Both Spartan Blades and maker William Harsey were asked by a Canadian special forces outfit to build them a blade that would serve them well in their homeland. Together they designed the Difensa, named for the famous battle fought by Canadian/US 1st Special Service Force during WWII in Italy.
The Difensa's flat ground spear point blade profile serves as an excellent combat knife, but also strong all-around outdoors companion with good tip strength for penetration. Full tang CPM-S35VN stainless steel is Black PVD coated with Black 3D contoured Canvas Micarta handle scales. Comes fully equipped with a Black Kydex sheath brand new direct from Spartan Blades.
