You may have noticed that cleaver style blades are in right now. These mostly straight edged knives have a striking appearance and happen to be very well suited to EDC cutting tasks. It also happens to be a blade style that looks great in Bastion’s popular Braza family of knives.
Bastion is currently in the middle of a crowdfunding campaign for the new Braza Bro Cleaver. It would be a bit of an understatement to say that it has been a successful campaign so far considering they have blown away their $5000 funding goal.
This tiny flipper knife delivers a lot at its sub-$40 price (depending on options). It is available with a number of options including stainless or titanium handles and a D2 or S35VN steel blade. The blade rides on ceramic ball bearings to provide easy opening via the flipper. The pocket clip is reversible for either left or right side tip up carry.

Bastion’s new Battle Axe has the kind of features-to-value ratio that we have come to expect from them. It features full-tang, D2 steel construction with G-10 handle slabs. The slabs are black and the steel is given a durable black PVD finish to match.
The cutting bit has a generous relief cut behind it for choking up on the handle for fine work. The spike on the back of the poll can be used for puncturing or drilling.

Bastion continues to turn out new knife designs. Their latest is an affordable fixed blade knife called the Titan.
The Titan features D2 steel with a black PVD coating. It has black G-10 handle slabs over a full tang. The handle includes an unobtrusive guard, jimping on the spine, and a scallop to allow for a comfortable pinch grip. The knife is 8″ overall with a 3 1/4″, saber ground blade.
So far, this all sounds pretty good for $40… However, the Titan does not come with a sheath so the end user will need to source their own.
