OLEAN, NY based EK Commando Knife Co. recently notified us they are releasing the Ek/Spartan Dagger for limited production.
It’s hard not to like a knife from a company called Commando. Hell, it’s hard not going commando.
Anyway, here’s what they tell us about the new blade. We haven’t used one, haven’t even seen on in person. We’re just passing it along without opinion.

Here’s some history on the company, assuming you’re interested. If not, fine, waste the time we spent on it.
Ek Commando Knife Co. or Ek Knives was a combat knife manufacturer founded by John Ek in 1941. Following several changes in ownership, in May 2014 Ek Knives was purchased by Ka-Bar who began selling their versions of Ek knife designs in 2015. Although not officially issued gear, Ek Knives have seen use by US Forces in 6 major conflicts: World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War, Afghanistan, and Iraq War. Ek Knives manufactures Bowie style blades, daggers, and a Fairbairn-Sykes MkII.
