Jason Brous, the mastermind behind Brous Blades, is one of the great young craftsman on the rise in our industry. His first successful design, the Silent Soldier, was and still is among the most popular true neck knives we carry. Soon after the Silent Soldier came out, a fixed blade with three distinct bevels was created called the Triple Threat. Now, just over a year later, we are pleased to see coming through our doors a very well done folding version of that wicked knife. The 3-1/2″ blade is made from D2 tool steel and is a paired with a 4-1/2″ well textured and contoured G10 handle. Speed, ergonomics, lockup, fit and finish are right on par with knives of this price point.
The Coroner is the large fixed blade model we just received in and it really is an awe-inspiring piece of work. Brous has a strong background in CNC-machine work and that’s readily apparent with this knife. The 6-1/4″ spear point blade is a whopping 1/4″ thick piece of D2 tool steel but is not sharpened on both sides. The chainsaw-like serrations on the blade spine are extremely well executed and designed to unleash devastating, non-lethal, impact strikes. The milled G10 handle is a little small for gloved hands but it locks the heavy knife in the hand extremely well. Besides the excellent milling work on the blade, the sheath is not far behind as the best part of this knife. The friction fit Kydex sheath is as slim and sleek as it is functional; one of the best executed Kydex sheaths I’ve ever seen. These are two great overbuilt knives that you can be sure not many other people will have, check them out at www.knifecenter.com.

The very popular model 0350 has added yet another new variation to the family, this one with bright orange handles. The G10 on this model is slightly thicker than previous versions making for a more comfortable knife to hold and to use. The 3-1/4″ recurved blade is best described as a mix of bead blasted and stonewashed for a good looking and most likely very durable blade finish. The 0550BLK is the same exact knife as it was before but with a black DLC coated S35VN blade. The titanium locking side features the new more-Hinderer inspired frame lock and the same deep carry pocket clip found on the 0560 and 0561 models. Excellent ergonomics, good looks, and a real sense of toughness emanates from these two knives and there’s no doubt both would serve well in just about any application.

A Kwaiken is very simplistic Japanese style short sword with a slim, slender profile which can be easily concealed. Carried by both the samurai men and women, it was preferred when either a Katana or Wakizashi was too large or impractical to use. The Boker Plus Kwaiken is a folding interpretation of this knife designed by Lucas Burnley out of New Mexico. It features the classic Kwaiken blade shape, sleek Micarta scales, a tight pocket clip, and a very attractive stonewashed finish. The thumb disk is very difficult to actuate right out of the box but with everything in life, just a little practice and thumb pressure to the right area finds this knife flying open extremely fast. This is due to the IKBS bearing system found on a couple CRKT knives which, for the money, is the smoothest opening system on the market. This knife may not be for everyone but it is a very well constructed tactical design with all the elegance typical of Boker designs. Check this knife out at www.knifecenter.com.

The new Strike Fighter knives from Ontario are well designed, stout back-up tools meant for any military or law enforcement personnel. The handle shape and texturing are borrowed from the successful XM-1 Military folders and made from removable black Micarta slabs. Each knife comes with an excellent plastic molded friction fit sheath that secures the knife tightly without rattling and has an attached Tek-Lok from the factory. There are two sizes of the fixed Strike Fighters available – the SG-3 with a three inch blade and the SG-2 with a stubby two inch blade. It beats me why anyone would need such a little fixed blade, when the SG-3 model can do everything it’s smaller brother can plus much more. Overall, these are very comfortable and durable new American made designs that will not fail you when you need them. Check them out at www.knifecenter.com.

Slim, sleek, long, and natural are the first things that come to mind when handling the new Spyderco Ulize. Very similar in looks, size, and shape to one of the original Spyderco models, the C07 Police, this Ulrich Hennicke design is more than fit for duty. The Ulize was specifically designed for use by the German police as a functional utility tool as well as devastating cutter with its 4.12″ re-curved VG-10 blade. The handle melds into the hand extremely well and puts the blade in an excellent cutting position in multiple grips. Proceeds of this knife will benefit officers killed in the line of action and the four-position clip, backlock, and trademark round-hole make this pocket knife completely ambidextrous and great for any user. Check out this new large tactical folder from Spyderco at www.knifecenter.com.
