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.”
It is the intent of Spartan Blades to provide the modern warrior and outdoorsman with knives that will serve them in a variety of missions and environments. Their intent is not to provide a cool knife or the next great pry bar, but rather produce a knife that is highly functional, made from only premium materials and techniques that look great too!
Ares (Aręs) is a fitting name for this knife. In Greek mythology Ares was the son of Zeus and Hera, the god of war. “Ares” is manufactured for the modern warrior as a military fighting/utility knife with several distinctive features to assist the serious military professional. This knife was specifically engineered for and with the input of U.S. Special Operations Forces and Other Government Agencies. 'Nuff said.
