For this week’s steal we’re highlighting the fine selection of knives available from Brous Blades. It may seem like cheating to call an entire brand a steal, but with Brous you really can’t go wrong. KnifeCenter was one of the first retailers to partner with Brous, because they make absolutely outstanding mid-tech knives but sell them for production prices.
Jason Brous began making knives in his early twenties. His first models, inspired by biomechanical artwork, weren’t tremendously well received. It wasn’t until the Silent Soldier line of neck knives that the company really took off. He even licensed the design to SOG. There are a bunch of blade variations on this line, like this hawk we have here. This guy has a Black Cerakoate D2 tool steel blade measuring in at a little under two and a half inches. The design lends itself to multiple different grip styles for maximum versatility in combat situations.
Since they made their name with the Silent Soldier, Brous has put out a number of great designs, like the Coroner; a mean fixed blade available in black or a limited edition neon green zombie. This massive 6.25″ blade is also D2 steel, and sports an embellished chainsaw-like pattern on the spine for destructive impact strikes. The G10 handle and deep finger grooves make this a comfortable, confident carry.
In recent years Jason has transitioned away from fixed blade offerings and turned his focus towards creating some of the best folders on the market. Brous’ biomechanical background gives all his models a very sleek, animalistic appearance. The action across the board is smooth as heavily buttered silk, and the handles, whether they be titanium, carbon fiber, or G10, are a joy to hold. With each line available in numerous eye-catching colors there’s a high degree of personalization available.
Brous also puts out one of the best one-piece multi-tools on the market with the BMT. This is made from 1/8th inch D2 steel and the compact design belies a tremendous functionality. This thing boasts the ubiquitous bottle opener, a pry bar, nail puller, screw-driver, and more.
When it comes to variety, quality of materials, and general craftsmanship, Brous Blades is a pretty hard company to beat. To see the full variety of Brous products available, click here. To see our entire inventory, visit knifecenter.com
