The Snarl is a everyday ready fixed blade model from SOG in collaboration with custom knife maker Jason Brous. The "functional fantasy" Snarl knife features a 9CR18MoV stainless steal sheepsfoot style blade with a satin finish. It's like a brass knuckles/SOG mash-up. Includes sturdy sheath for neck or belt carry.
So far I really enjoy this blade. Personally it is more of a backup/show knife so it does not get much use. However it attaches very well to my belt and can be removed from the hard plastic sheath easily and quickly if need be. The design feels nice in the hand remarkably well for the finger hole design. Great deal for the price, I got it around $22. I would probably not pay much more myself for a fixed blade this size of this steel but for the price it was a deal and I love it!
This is a great small edc fixed blade option. Materials and finish are decent for the price. I would definitely buy again. Shipping was quick.
Not really meant for anything other than self defense, it is stocky and thick, so it isn't that great of a cutter. The holes make for a secure grip that is also comfortable. These are a good alternative to the pricier and hard to come by Brous Blades variants.
I'm actually a big fan of the sheath for this knife, I can confidently withdraw the blade easily with my index finger through the hole and my thumb on the top of the sheath. It sits well on the belt for horizontal carry and isn't too intimidating to use in public as it looks more like a utility blade than a weapon.
I've had one of these for a few years. I worked as a receiving clerk when I got it so it cut a lot of cardboard. It maintains an edge well and is pretty comfortable to use however the thickness of the blade can make forcing the blade thought certain materials a pain.
It came sharp right out of the box, and is great as far as cutting goes. It can really hold an edge, too.However, it was relatively IMPOSSIBLE to remove the knife from the sheath. I was afraid that I was going to stab my little brother while I was trying to get the knife out. Also, it is relatively uncomfortable in the hand (6/10) and doesn't fit well if you have big hands like mine. Anyway, if you're just getting into neck knives, I would recommend it because it is good for EDC and it isn't really that bad.
