JBSNIPERFLSAT: Sniper Frame Lock
Brous Blades
 
The Sniper was one of Brous Blades' most popular models of 2015/2016 and they are continuing the design with the Sniper Frame Lock. The Sniper FL is their take on a Kwaiken style blade and is aimed at being one of their most affordable knives. The frames are made from stainless steel and have been machined on the interior to keep the weight down. The D2 tool steel blade rides on the Brous Bearing System and fires out quickly by using the flipper tab. Standoffs gives the Sniper FL a flow-through design that is easily cleaned and maintained. The pocket clip is set up for right hand, tip-up carry. The Sniper FL keeps its same easy-to-carry size but now with a stronger frame lock design. Each knife is individually numbered and includes a signed certificate of authenticity.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Lock Type, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use
Pretty good
Truthfully, I'm not a huge fan of most of the Brous Blade designs, but this one works for me. The blade fits flush inside the handle, its sharp, the jimping is in all the right places which isn't too aggressive or too slick; it's just right. Deployment works well most of the time but not always. Also, it is very ergonomic in hand. The frame lock is a little hard to close at times. Oh yeah, the pocket clip is too tight; however, I like the fact that it is a true deep carry design. I won't be using this except for display. Other than that, the sniper is worth the money.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening, Handle Material
Good, but Flawed
I have merely fondled this knife for a few hours, and I like it, but I have some issues with it. I like how easy it is to open, but after a while the lock bar starts to hurt your thumb. They tried to mitigate this by doing a slight plunge on the front of the lock face. The jimping under the flipper tab is not pleasant to drag your finger on. This knife does pretty well ergonomically, but the clip is a bit of a hot spot if held incorrectly. Also, it has a similar problem to most of the KAI/ZT's I have handled. When closing the knife, if you do not get the blade past the detent ball, it simply hangs open and you have to either use both hands to force the blade past the detent ball, or adjust your grip to do it one-handed.
