Jason Brous of Brous Blades recently burst on the tactical custom knife scene in a big way thanks in large part to his Silent Soldier neck knife design. The Silent Soldier is a compact, self-defense fixed blade design that offers excellent retention in spite of its small grip. The demand for the Silent Soldier is massive so you will be happy to know that there is now a production version of the Silent Soldier from SOG Knives called the Snarl.
The Snarl retains much of functional design of the Silent Soldier. It has 2 large finger loops that facilitate a variety of different holds and make the knife easy to retain. The wharncliffe blade profile is good for both self-defense and utilitarian tasks. The Snarl is ground from .25″ thick 9CR18MoV steel. It has a 2.3″ blade and a 4.3″ overall length. It comes with a molded plastic sheath.
