Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
This is my second Brous knife and again I am impressed with the qualify of the product. My first knife, a Virtue, boasted a D2 blade with a titanium handle. The Sniper uses the Brous's D2 quality blade but uses stainless steel for the handle to help keep the cost down. The Kwaiken blade gives a tactical feel to this beautiful knife and though it is a little longer than most of my EDC knives, it is more than sturdy enough to handle any task I have for it and the handle is well shaped with no hot spots. The blade on my knife came quite sharp and the owner of Brous Blades is proud enough of his work to send a card along with the knife stating that you receive a free lifetime of sharpening and refurbishing. The pocket clip is deep carry with almost no part of the knife visible. The flipping action of the knife was smooth (although not as nice as with the more expensive Virtue) and I was easily able to open the blade with no wrist action with the knife pointing down, to either side, or even straight up. Also Brous knives come in a very nice, well padded, plastic case that houses the knife along with a certificate of authenticity signed by Jason Brous. A nice package, great product,and made in the USA.
