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, former Special Forces Teammate and good friend of Spartan founders Curtis and Mark. Having worked throughout Asia and in Indonesia, both 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 Spartan Blades Bronze (Field) Grade folders incorporate their “Oil-Infused Bronze Bushing System” or “OIBBS”! These sintered bronze bushings are impregnated with oil which reduces the friction on the blade, thus giving you a tight but smooth blade opening. This system is especially useful for slow speeds, intermittent use, and uneven loads such as are found on folding knives.
