What are some of the things we have lost from our grandfathers generation? Most would say that we’ve lost our toughness from their generation. There were some that grew up with floors made of dirt and air conditioning was only for the “fancy people”. Others would say that we lost our resourcefulness. Most probably had a grandpa that could be presented with a leaky faucet or an appliance that went out. Instead of picking up the phone to call a handy man, your grandpa became the handy man. They could tinker and mess with things and understand how they worked in a matter of minutes. Most of the work done on the family vehicle was done by them. They would have laughed at us if they heard we took our cars in just to get an oil change. It would also be a safe bet that your grandpa probably carried around a pocket knife too. We might not be able to make you tough or turn you into a handy man but we’ve definitely found a knife that would make your Pop Pop proud.
Brous Blades is a company known for making high quality knives and accessories related to knives and the outdoors. We came across their Exo blade and were impressed to say the least. The price tag is pretty high for a knife (we know) but this blade isn’t your normal Swiss Army $20 knife. The blade itself is made of high grade steel with a clip for attaching to a pocket or belt if needed. The blade itself is 3.5 inches long and the entire knife itself is 8 inches when fully extended. They make a variety of finishes that you can purchase the knife with and even allow for further customization if you desire. Pocket knives are one of those every day carry items that you realize you didn’t need until… well, until you need a knife! Pay close attention this Christmas when kids are trying to open that devil packaging around the gift. You and your knife will be the most popular person at Christmas.
