Had this knife for a while.
I paid pretty much close to double the price of this knife and I would do it again. I'm thinking of buying another one here. There is no other knife that I have felt that opens up like a Brous Blade. It feels as though it's an automatic but it's not, probably just as fast too. I have my eye on a couple other Brous Blades, they're functional art!
Beautifully-made knife

I was surprised to read a negative review on this knife, as my sample is excellent. The blade is perfectly centred and very well ground. The flipping action is smooth as silk, and the knife just feels great in the hand. Wonderful ergonomics with an overall feel of solidity and quality.
Great product!

Unlike the other reviewer, my knife appears to be expertly crafted. The opening action was smooth right out if the box and the acid finish is awesome. Overall great knife! Only con I can think of is the pocket clip is kinda strange in its shape and a little small in length making it difficult to get hooked on your pocket sometimes.

-comfy and once it's been broken in (1,000 or so flips) it's a very smooth flipper.
-very aesthetic and ergonomic. Some Brous does well is make a crazy looking knife edc and use friendly.
-ball bearing system
-pretty good steel
-I will give credit where it's due, their customer service is spot on and and they've offered to replace my blade. So keep that in mind while reading the cons

-again, take this with a grain of salt, I own two of this exact knife and other Brous's, they're all perfect. Seems I got a dud.
-no thread locker on the pivot. Every 50-100 flips I had to retighten the pivot. I ended up putting loctite myself and it was A-o-kay. Don't know if they're usually shipping out with loctite or not..
-viewing the blade from the overhead looking down at the spine, the blade is obviously crooked in its forming.
- The first edge/bevel goes up to different heights on each side.
-The bevel on the spine is noticeably different on each side.
-Overall assymetrical and inconsistent.

-overview. It's a cool knife and I bought it on sale for cyber Monday. I would recommend you get one before they're gone, if you have any issues, Brous Blades is very easy to deal with. Only thing keeping from fifth star is my luck with quality control
