ABOUT THE MAKER
Brous Blades
Knifemaking encompasses an amazingly broad spectrum of styles ranging from the purely practical to the whimsical. Most makers getting into the craft tend to start with fairly basic, functional designs and, as their skills develop, get more ambitious and artistic. Jason Brous, however, isn’t like most makers. Although still in his early 20’s, Brous began his efforts in knifemaking with the benefit of nearly 10 years of experience in CNC machining. His father owns a shop that specializes in the custom machining of high-precision components, mainly for the medical industry. Jason spent a lot of time in his father’s shop while growing up, and by his mid teens was actively helping out with production. His skills and knowledge steadily increased and by the time he was 20 he was a seasoned and very competent machinist. Jason's interest in knives actually began with art - specifically a style called “Bio-mechanical” - as practiced by one of his favorite artists, a Brazilian painter and tattooist named Lango. Biomechanical art (also called Biomech) is a surrealistic style of art that combines elements of machines and robotics with organic animal features. Intrigued by this style of art and its similarity to many fantasy knives, Jason figured that knifemaking would be a natural extension of his metalworking skills and an appropriate medium for his artistic ideas. Although he had no specific training in knifemaking, in 2010 he designed and made his first knife - a fantasy design with a Biomech flavor - and eagerly posted photos of it on several Internet knife forums. Unfortunately for him, his design drew harsh criticism from some all-knowing keyboard commandos. However, fortunately for us, he turned that criticism into fierce determination which ultimately led to his success. Through persistent trial and error, Jason changed his style of knife design to focus on functional simplicity, while still maintaining a strong artistic signature. His early successes came in the form of a series of stout neck knives with dual finger-hole grips. Fans of these “Silent Soldier” neck knives began asking for other expressions of the design. Since then, Jason has created numerous variations including a clip point version, a tanto version and the very popular folder version called the Silent Soldier Flipper.
Willumsen, Mikkel
My name is Mikkel Willumsen. Beside playing music all my life (sing,Playing The blues Harp and Congas and all kinds of percussion) I am a Pro custom knife maker for 10 years located in the heart of Copenhagen in Denmark. I graduated in 2000 as teacher in metal and woodwork, and decided after my graduation that knife making should be my future. I already got the interest for knives as a child and collected many different kinds of knives back then. I am specialized in folding knives, fixed blades and balisongs. Further to these items I make kitchen knives. I am primarily influenced by design,that is function and quality based, therefore I use the best material for my knives. The style is tactical and I use the name Urban Tactical for my work. I get my inspiration from classical designs mixed with modern tactics. To give you an idea one of my customers told me recently that my knives look like a Hummer and are built like a tank!
