Not long ago I introduced and wrote about a company called Bastion and their extremely impressive bolt action pen. Bastion really caught my attention as a company that’s doing a stellar job at offering high quality EDC tools at extremely affordable prices.
It’s almost like the company actually heard all of those guys who walk around tire-kicking at gun shows going “I’m not going to spend $$$ on a pen or $$$ on a knife!” BAM! Here’s Bastion dropping the mic again. I have only handled a couple of pieces from this company, but if these two offerings are representative examples of what Bastion is capable of making happen, the industry better pay attention.
The Bastion Braza is an extremely well-built knife. It sports a D2 steel blade, Titanium scales, stainless steel Torx fasteners and ceramic bearings, all offered at a value price of…$69.99.
Some of you guys who are all about “I’m not buying that Chinese junk” need to wake up and smell the coffee. Or spend $300-$400 on an American-made knife of equal quality and materials. At $69, this is a true user knife and something that you aren’t going to regret beating up at work. Not to mention, it’s also a fine-looking knife.
If you are like a lot of people right now and are looking for good quality EDC items that you can afford, look no further. The Bastion Braza has got you covered.
I highly recommend this knife.
