Doing an inventory last week and we found these sweet neck knives from Brous Blades that never made it into our inventory for some reason. So, in light of the fact we found 12 of them, I decided to review this knife. Brous Blades hit the knife market with a bang a couple years back and hasn’t stopped wowing his followers ever since. The very first knives of his that we carried were Silent Soldier neck knives.
After the first run of these popular neck knives sold out, he decided to make a few adjustments to the design and came out with the 2nd Generation of Silent Soldier neck knives. This V1 style features a Wharncliffe style blade along with two finger holes and an extended finger choil for your finger.
There are actually 7 different grips with which you can hold the Silent Soldier V1 knife. Built from one machined piece of D2 tool steel, this every day carry tool allows you to get nearly any cutting done as well as doubling as a formidable self defense tool. It comes in a kydex sheath with a belt clip, but if you remove the belt clip, you can attach the included black bead neck chain and carry it around your neck.
Built with the attention to detail you would expect from any Brous product, the handle has small patches of jimping right where you need them to get a nice, solid grip on the knife. It also has the Brous Blades name on the spine–which I think makes a really nice neck knife into a classy, really nice neck knife.
If you want a neck knife that will last for generations with proper care, get the Brous Blades Neck Knife. You can find all of our current stock here on our website.
Here is a nice video comparing the V1 from Generation 1 and Generation 2. The video depicts the satin finished version instead of the black finished version we have in stock–but the style is the same.
