Cons: Weight
Second specimen... much improved!
I just got my hands on a second Silent Soldier V2 (2nd Gen) and after my last review, I feel it necessary to provide a bit more feedback. My first SSv2 had it's fair share of fit and finish issues (none of which would at all affect performance.) Functionality-wise, the factory edge also left something to be desired, but nothing a quick trip to the sharpener couldn't resolve. ---- This new SSv2 is nearly flawless. The only criticism I would levy against it is that the sheath retention isn't quite as taut as the first. It's not so light as to have me worried about it dropping out with neck carry, but if it were to snag on something slightly, it would surely pop out. Now, it is my understanding that Mr. Brous has only just recently entered the production market. That might explain the lapse in QC with my first SSv2. Either way, I hope I was in the minority with those findings, as this is quickly becoming one of my favorite neck knives of all time, and seeing some of his other custom work, Brous Blades surely has a bright future ahead of itself.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Almost big hit
Knife feels great in hand. The neck chain feature works great also, but the belt clip is too small for duty belts.

For the price, I expected a bit better...
Design-wise, I love this knife. I was in the market for a neck knife with a short overall length, without sacrificing too much of the blade. In that respect, this knife knocks it out of the park. It's comfortable in-hand in several different grips. The sheath, though not Kydex, has great retention and minimal noise (though I see there is a bit of foam stuffed down in it; hopefully it isn't reliant on that for the long term.) The belt clip is integrated perfectly. The weight, though, is a bit more than I was hoping for, given it's overall length (closer to a KA-BAR BK-11 than an ESEE Izula.) ...unfortunately, when it comes to the fit and finish, the Silent Soldier just doesn't meet my expectations in the least. Little things like the 'zipper' cut for the jimping being noticeably off-center, the two front notches being misaligned, etc... For me, the biggest letdown was with the out-of-the-box sharpeness. Simply put this thing wouldn't even cut paperboard until I took it to a sharpener. It quickly became apparent just how poorly this thing was handled when setting it's edge bevel. Both the heel and the tip of the blade were so heavily gouged in the process that, even after ~45 minutes with the coarse stones, I still don't expect them to be flush with the rest of the newly reprofiled edge bevel for at least 4-5 more solid resharpenings. In order to minimize loss of blade length, I have decided to just hit it with a 10 degree (inclusive) harsher secondary bevel and call it a day.
