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.
