The Compass SHF 3.25 is one of Spartan's custom edition designs. Both sides of the titanium frame have been given an intricately detailed engraved design with a gold/bronze anodized finish for a beautiful contrast. The blade has been ground from CPM S45VN with purple anodized thumb studs. All the titanium hardware (frame screws, stop pin, tab screws, standoffs) have a satin finish adding to the contrast. Titanium pocket clip with two tone purple and gold anodized finish.
About the SHF 3.25: Everyone thinks that when making a smaller version of a knife design, you just load up your design program and directly scale it down. "We wish it were that simple", says every knife maker ever in response. While on the surface that would seem to be all it takes, rarely does it work in the real world. The team at Spartan Blades and Bill Harsey set out to bring a little brother of the venerable SHF out to the masses that was both a real-world hard use capable folder like the full sized SHF while staying slim and light enough to fill the 'small folder' role. Unsurprisingly, they pulled it off! The 3.25 features the same design and feel of the full sized SHF, but built for those with smaller paws (or those that enjoy smaller blades). Great ergonomics with jimping grooves in just the right places. Legendary Harsey design with legendary Spartan build quality and support. The 3.25 has all the bells and whistles you expect, in a more carry friendly design.
