Brous Blades 2nd Generation Silent Soldier Neck Knife Review

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.

Brous Blades Silent Soldier Gen 3 Flipper Knife Review — Snapshot Review

Brous Blades has just released their 3rd Generation Silent Soldier flipper knives.  This popular flipper boasts a D2 tool steel blade with a high utility Wharncliffe blade style.  The blade has a double swedge, aggressive thumb jimping on the spine, and a 7/8″ finger hole so you can control the blade however you decide to hold it.  The blade opens ultra smooth on a ball bearing system.  Lock up is tight–just like you would expect from one of Jason Brous’ blades.  The handle is built from skeletonized stainless steel liners with scales of twill weave carbon fiber.  The stainless steel spacer has the BROUS BLADES stamp on it. Each knife bears an individual serial number from 1 to 500 on the inside edge of the back spacer.   Deep carry pocket clip.  The knife comes in a great hard snap case with padded interior.  This is a top quality, collector grade knife.

The great thing about Brous Blades is although they exhibit collector grade quality, they are built for heavy use–if that is what you are looking for.  Each one is built from the very best materials and with an attention to detail that is seldom found in any product.  The D2 blade is going to take a great edge.  And it will keep that edge under hard and heavy use.  The handle is built for comfort and control.  Based on the geometry and style of the handle, this little flipper knife is designed so that you can hold it in a variety of positions–depending on your intended use.  A fantastic defensive tool, the Gen 3 Silent Soldier is also the kind of EDC that is going to look good wherever you happen to be.  Check them out here on our website.  Let me know what you think of yours down below.

Brous Blades Division Flipper Knife

One of the most recent releases from Brous Blades is the Division Flipper knife.  This smooth opening flipper features a D2 steel blade with an integrated flipper for easy deployment.  The ball bearing pivot creates one of the smoothest opening knives you will ever see.  With a carbon fiber handle that is comfortable in the hand, the Division Flipper is the kind of knife you want to carry.  The deep carry, tip up pocket clip makes for a discreet pocket knife.  I especially like the Blackout version of this knife which features an all black finish.  If you have never tried a Brous Blades knife—the Division is a great one to start with.
