When I review knives the kind of steel is very important. First of all, I usually spend quite a bit of time researching the steel. In addition to my own impressions I look to user experiences, manufacturer guidelines, and independent resources on steel. Then, I usually spend a good amount of time in each review discussing the the pros and cons of the steel, why the manufacturer might have selected it and sometimes I even do comparisons and go into detail on heat treating and all of that.
Owner Jason Brous started Brous Blades relatively recently in 2010 while he was in his early 20’s. Jason came from a CNC machining background as a result of his father (and grandfather before him) who owns a custom machining shop aimed primarily at the medical industry. Jason grew up working on the machine shop floor and soon began developing an interest in knives, realizing the endless possibilities with knife design. As Jason developed competency in CNC machining his passion for knives and knifemaking also began to take off.
