The Snarl is a fairly close copy of the original Brous without the finger tang. Brous uses D2 and the SOG uses 9CR18MoV. The SOG steel is much more economical but isn't a terrible choice. One major difference is that the Brous has a beveled transition between the blade edge and the body and the SOG has a T transition with a lot less meat offering a possible weak point. But, being a wharncliffe blade it is unlikely to be used for prying action that would stress the weak point.

Yesterday I took delivery of an actual Brous that I am giving as a gift. Darn nice knife. D2 steel with a black Cerakote coating. The finger tang is a great addition. This one has a drop point blade that will offer more diverse use (although I like wharncliffe blades). I was considering picking up another Snarl but instead will snag a real Brous. That said the Snarl is a heck of a value.

Thanks for explaining the differences Storm. Did you have any problems getting from Brous? He's had some issues lately.

Hey Yo. I picked mine up on EBay. Blade HQ also has them. They go for pretty much retail. I have heard that Jason Brous has had some health issues. I hope he is on the mend. Very talented man.

Nothin special, but works great. Mora Blade, and the rest is homemade.


My go-to knife for many years now.

Ek anyone?

This is a WWII 1st generation John Ek, Hamden, Conn No. 2 Commando knife. This one has never been carried or sharpened. Its 6 15/16 inch blade is made from special nickel molybdenum alloy. Only US servicemen were allowed to own these. Serial numbers and registration cards of the servicemen were retained on these early John Ek knives.

Once coined as the "Strativarius of the blade". General George S. Patton carried one along side of this Ivory handled revolvers. President Franklin D. Roosevelt had one in his desk in the oval office and Captain Clark Gable flew missions over Germany with one.

The handles slabs are rock maple with poured lead rivets.

Great John Ek!!! That's quite the prize. Do you have the "Silent Partner" pamphlet that came with them?

There's a great story about John Ek going before the strategic materials board to plead his case for why he should be allocated a supply of valuable nickel cromoly steel when the demand in the war effort was so very high. He was asked why his knife was so special when it looked so plain. He supposedly poured oil on his hand and on the knife and then stabbed it into a solid surface without his hand slipping at all. His reputation, and this, got him his allocation. Great story whether true or not.
