Description
JBBIOSATBLK: Bionic
Brous Blades
 
The goal for the Bionic was to create a small, lightweight, easy to carry and affordable EDC (Everyday Carry). The hollow ground D2 blade rides on the proprietary ball bearing pivot system making the deployment quick and easy. The CNC machined handle scales are made from aircraft grade 6061 Aluminum and feature a stainless steel liner inlay which provides a strong and sturdy lock up for a lifetime. The Bionic flipper can be deployed 2 ways, using the flipper tang or using the manual opening option with the groove cut out above the grind. This knife has been brutality tested for the past 6 months and has been repetitively reliable. The Bionic is the first EDC choice of Jason Brous.

Cons: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip
It's a great first step for Jason
My reviews on Knifecenter have always been long, so this will be short (hopefully). I received my Bionic today (again, a serious nod to the shipping, super fast) and was very excited to get it. However my initial reaction was mediocre. The "flipping" action was not as smooth as I read online. The liner lock looks a bit flimsy compared to what I was expecting. It took some time to develop a nice flipping motion with both the flipper and a slight wrist flick. Considering the weight I had feared it would shoot out of my hand. That being said I am indeed impressed. I own two Brous blades, this being the third and it's Jason's first attempt to make a true EDC. I think the D2 and weight truly save this knife. Sharpness is insanity, one of the sharpest ever out of the box. Plus the weight is just beyond most EDC's (in terms of being feather light that is). For a first attempt EDC for an independent maker it is on great start. I'm glad to have purchased it and honestly it stands up with some Benchmades I own for around the same price.

Cons: Handle Material, Handle Feel, None
Great Knife, but with a big downside
High quality materials and great shape to the blade and handle, but I could not get over how slippery the aluminum handles are. I actually sent this back after I received because of the handles. Blade is a great shape and this is a definite buy if you like the aluminum handles, but I have Large hands, and the aluminum is too slippery for my taste.
