Thoughts on the SS
The quality of manufacturing from Jason Brous is extremely high. Mr. Brous grew up in a professional machine shop, so has over a decade experience with grinding metals & forming shapes. The SS is an extremely high value item for the price because you are getting a solid compact knife that you can carry on your person easily (there is a growing market demand for compact over built folders but this is better since it is a fixed blade), CPM D2 steel that is heat treated by Mr. Brous, a 5mm thick blade & a very effective self defense tool. The SS is much more well made & a higher value option compared to a KA-Bar TDI Knife. The knife is compact & light enough to be worn around the neck or in the pocket or on a belt.
