Information from Bear & Son Cutlery
Bear & Son Cutlery is proud to manufacture their 4th Generation Series, made of high-polished 1095 carbon steel blades and popular Yellow Delrin handles. The 4th Generation name comes from the style knife I remember my Pap sitting on the front porch on Saturday afternoon, listening to a Braves game on the radio and peeling an apple. I would try to peel that apple without breaking the peel. My Papa Griffey would always accomplish this seemingly impossible task. I can also remember sitting with my Papa, Dad and Uncle whittlin' a piece of ceder. I can smell that pile of fine shavings at the end of the day.
1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for it's extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

Nice working knife at a good price
I bought one as soon as I got the KnifeCenter email that these were available. I bought the larger sized 4-5/8" "Farmhand". This is definitely a working knife, not a collector in any shape or form. It has typical Bear & Son quality; that is, a bit "rough around the edges" with definite signs of having been made by the hands of real human beings. This is my 4th Bear & Son knife; they all come with some grinding dust and dirt in the joints, which makes them feel a bit rough. It takes some WD-40, cleaning and then some good oil and a hundred or so openings and closings to get them "bedded in" properly and feeling smoother so they "walk and talk" properly (although they'll never be a high-end Case or Boker). The epoxy in the micarta handles on this one is uneven, giving the handles a used or unfinished look, which was a bit disappointing to me. I suppose it's not a problem for a working knife at this price though. And the blade isn't centered when it's folded, so these details show that it isn't a luxe class knife, to be sure. However, the 4-5/8" length feels really good in the hand, as does the width and shape of the handle. I kind of wish the blade locked, which would be safer for me for this length of knife. Bottom line, it's definitely worth the money, as long as you're not expecting a plush collector-style knife. That it's made in the good ol' U.S. of A. is a bonus at this price!
