Description: Curtis Iovito and Mark Carey, co-founders of Spartan Blades, LLC, possess over 40 years of combined military service and experience. Since their retirement from US Army Special Forces they have been involved in the development, marketing, and program management of tactical gear and ballistic armor products. For years, Curtis has designed and made custom knives for his friends in Special Forces and for other companies. Mark and Curtis have combined their shared love of knife making, military experience and knowledge of the tactical equipment market to form Spartan Blades, LLC with a singular mission: “Manufacture finely crafted tactical and field knives.”
Alala in Ancient Greek, meaning "battle-cry" or "war-cry", was the personification of the war cry in Greek mythology. Greek soldiers attacked the enemy with this cry in order to cause panic in their lines.
The blade is 1095 Cro-Van carbon steel hardened to 59-60 Hrc. A black coating prevents light reflection and will help protect the blade.The raised thumb ramp has jimping to provide an excellent thumb purchase.
Textured canvas Micarta handle scales provide a comfortable, confident grip when wet or dry. A lanyard can be added to the rear of the knife for extra retention if desired.
The molded sheath comes with an active retention lever and securing strap for convenient carry options.
