764. Spartan (Guardia Svizzera Pontificia)

Acriter et fideliter – this Latin phrase which means “Fiercely and faithfully”, is printed on the back scale of black Spartan, which we’re reviewing today. It’s a motto of the oldest army in the world – The Pontifical Swiss Guard (or Guardia Svizzera Pontificia in Italian), which was established more than five hundred years ago, in 1506.
This knife was a gift from my wife for my birthday one year ago and it comes directly from Vatican City.
