The new Spartan Folder blade is a 4.5″ stainless steel fully serrated blade that takes elements from popular blade designs like the Kukri and is combined with a full-sized grip, and quality knife steel to provide collectors and knife nerds with a functional and collectible folding blade.

New Lynn Thompson Signature Spartan Folder from Cold Steel
The Cold Steel Lynn Thompson Signature Spartan, featuring a signature on the front face of the blade and a serial number of authenticity. The Spartans super-sharp serrated blade is made from S35VN Steel, and was designed to echo the aesthetics and cutting performance of the world famous Kukri, with its recurved edge, big belly and sharp point. The blade of this Cold Steel knife has the patented “Demko” thumb plate for ambidextrous one handed opening, as well as open on withdrawal. The grooved OD Green G-10 handle has a pronounced choil and pommel curve for secure grip, steel liners for strength, the Tri-Ad lock and a lanyard hole. It’s heavily contoured for comfort and features irregular fluting and a heavily textured surface finish for an exceptionally effective grip.
The Linn Thompson Signature Spartan Folder will feature a 4.5 S35VN stainless steel fully-serrated blade, a 6″ OD Green G-10 handle, and an overall length of 10.5.” The blade straddles the division between a full-sized folder and an EDC folder and I’m pretty sure some of the bigger fellows here can probably stuff this thing into a pocket without issue. The new limited edition Lynn Thompson Signature Spartan is available now for a price of $399.99 directly from the Cold Steel website.
