New Jason Brous Creations at the KnifeCenter

New Jason Brous Creations at the KnifeCenter

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.

DPx Gear HEST/F 2.0 T3 Triple Black Special Edition Folder

DPx Gear HEST/F 2.0 Triple Black Special Edition Folder

DPx Gear, in partner with Italian knife manufacturer LionSteel, is doing some amazing things with their excellently designed HEST Folder. After almost a year of field use gathering opinions, suggestions, and modification ideas, DPX Gear has come out with their Triple Black special edition folder with some serious tactical improvements. The main complaint about their original folder by soldiers serving all over the world was that it just wasn’t tactical enough. The knife lacked serrations and the Titanium lock side and clip were too darn visible and with this simple idea at heart, the new HEST T3 was born. The knife now comes with a tactical black G10 handle scale, a PVD-coated Titanium lockbar, and is free of any discernible markings on the blade or clip. This allows for the knife to disappear into the night and with the sharp biting serrations, it’s possibly the perfect combat theater tool. Another awesome new feature of the Triple Black T3 folder is that the skull shaped adjustment tool now incorporates a built in compass. For it to function correctly, the tool had to be made from a non-magnetic alloy and what better for this than Titanium. Adjust your tactical tool with style and be sure to get yours before they’re gone forever, strictly limited to 500 production pieces. You can find this stout, tactical folder at www.knifecenter.com.
