I received my Bravo 2 recently and here are my first impressions.
First, it is a light knife. It feels more like a fighter in the hand. Certainly more of a fighter balance than the original Bravo 1. It is fast in the hand and every time I pick it up I just think perfect balanced fighter. It is very fast in the hand, in it almost dances in the hand. I really like the feel of the Bravo2.
Second, it is sharp. Wicked sharp. But the grind seems slightly off on mine and pulls to the right near the handle. I assume it is hand ground and just a little off. But the knife is super sharp and it does not seem to affect performance. You can see the grind is not centered in the pictures below of the handles from the top view. Since, I will use this knife not really in issue. But I am kind of a grind stickler so I was kind of bummed. The Bravo1 has perfect grinds.
Third I think it will make a great all around out door knife but is certainly not a chopper. The Bravo1 seems more a chopper than the Bravo2. Weird but true. The Bravo2 will make a great camp knife, but still I can't think fighter when I hold it. It needs a swedge grind and a high ride sheath for retention. Just my opinion!!
Fourth, The sheath is a great value for the price! But I would prefer a high ride leather sheath as opposed to the drop loop, for both knives. I just like a good high ride leather sheath. A high ride Kydex would work also.
My Bravo1 is well used and you can see some scratches on it on the comparison pictures.
