Description

Description

The Brous Blades Strife is a compelling design from custom knife maker Dustin Turpin. It has an easily recognizable compound ground blade with a cutout on the top, which helps facilitate forward grip cutting tasks. Effortless blade deployment is accomplished using the proprietary Brous bearing system in tandem with a flipper opener.

Attractive and lightweight carbon fiber scales are 3D milled and attached to skeletonized titanium liners. It has a flow-through carbon fiber back spacer. Lastly, the Strife has been outfitted with Brous' deep carry pocket clip and a reversible lanyard loop that make it a strong everyday carry choice.

Like another reviewer, I also have 3 other Brous Blade models with no issues, other than the sharpness of the jimping on a T4.

I returned this knife due to how stiff the detent is, as well as an issue with the liner lock. Lock-up was excellent but release was difficult - liner felt like it was 'stuck' and overextended in lock position. Also, the pocket clip is a poor design and knife was difficult to deploy from pocket.

I expected this knife to be another 5, but can only provide 3 stars and for the money, sale or not, I returned it for a ZT 0804.
Pocket clip is a joke... Jimping??

This is now my 4th Brous blade. I primarily bought this blade due to the carbon fiber scales at the price offered since they're normally a lot more, and the design looked interesting. The blade is wonderfully sculpted, and the construction machining is top notch, as with all my Brous Blades. A couple of things keep this from rating 5 star, where it easily could and should. First, the pocket clip is the biggest thing, its a joke, about a third of the size it should be and sticks out absurdly when clipped to a normal jean pocket. It allows NO room for thickness of material at all. Its disappointing as it promised to be a real deep cover clip, one thing kind of lacking in Brous Blades, but this is actually worse than the other clips, on my VR71 and my Sniper. Next, the lanyard hole.. also kind of a joke, WAY too small for any usable lanyard or paracord accessory on the market, even from the Brous website! Its not usable at all, and I'll probably take mine off. Jimping is so-so, not as good as my VR71 and the liner lock is 6 of 10, kind of difficult to access. Kind of some basic things here for a "semi-custom" knife to miss the mark on. Granted, "only" $250 but that's still a substantial price in my book, right up there with some bigger name autos and with a retail price in "Reeve's world", a bit disappointing. This should have been, and could have easily been, a 5 out of 5.
