The ASTOR is Spartan's first folding knife collaboration with prolific knife maker Les George. The ASTOR was built as a robust "Work Horse" of a knife! From its tough G-10 scales, thick liner-lock, and high ground premium CTS-XHP blade steel the ASTOR is the perfect knife for those jobs that require an extra bit of toughness. The deep carry pocket clip can be configured for left hand carry by switching to the left side and using the dual thumb studs. All at an affordable price!
All of the Bronze (Field) Grade folders incorporate the new “Oil Infused Bronze Bushing System” or “OIBBS”! The 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.
