Lynn Thompson is a legendary figure within the world of knifemaking and Cold Steel is just as well respected of a name.

New Lynn Thompson Special Edition Spartan Folder from Cold Steel
The Linn Thompson Signature Spartan Folder will feature a 4.5 S35VN Stainless steel fully-serrated blade, a 6″ OD green G-10 handle, and an overall length of 10.5.” The blade straddles the division between a full-sized folder and an EDC folder and I’m pretty sure some of the bigger fellows here can probably stuff this thing into a pocket without issue.
The Cold Steel Lynn Thompson Signature Spartan, featuring a signature on the front face of the blade and a serial number of authenticity. The Spartans super-sharp serrated blade is made from S35VN Steel, and was designed to echo the aesthetics and cutting performance of the world famous Kukri, with its recurved edge, big belly and sharp point. The blade of this Cold Steel knife has the patented “Demko” thumb plate for ambidextrous one handed opening, as well as open on withdrawal. The grooved OD Green G-10 handle has a pronounced choil and pommel curve for secure grip, steel liners for strength, the Tri-Ad lock and a lanyard hole. It’s heavily contoured for comfort and features irregular fluting and a heavily textured surface finish for an exceptionally effective grip.
While this may not be a blade for the average blue-collar worker to take to work every day, for the knife collector or enthusiast this could be a cherished blade that carries the legendary name of Lynn Thompson with it for future generations to enjoy. The new limited edition Lynn Thompson Signature Spartan is available now for a price of $399.99 directly from the Cold Steel website.
