Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
Better than expected
Okay, I have to admit I was a little hesitant in purchasing this balisong because Bear and Son (and Bear Ops) does not have the best reputation within the balisong community. But I was curious about this one. I am happy curiosity got the better of me as this balisong turns out to be better than expected right out of the box. Tolerances are quite good. The handles swing freely and smoothly and have practically zero handle play. The blade is razor sharp and has a nice shape and finish to it. This knife will make for a good EDC as the finish will hide any wear. All in all, the overall quality is quite good and a good value as other USA made, titanium handled, bearing pivot, 154CM stainless bladed balisongs are not going to be found at this price point. This is a step in the right direction for Bear and Son.
