Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
This is an everyday carry knife. The size is perfect. Not too big, not too small. I weighed it on a postage scale & it is 2.8 oz. Just under 4" closed & just under 8" open. I got it for the 1095 blade steel & could not be happier. Tough, easy to sharpen & gets really sharp. It just needs attending to because 1095 will rust or discolor if you don't keep it oiled. The knife is really handsome. I like to use my knives but if you wanted to collect these, Bear & Son knives are not so expensive you couldn't buy two. One to use & one to save. The knife is made very well. The springs are strong and snap the blades into place when opening & closing. The bolsters are shiny, the yellow Delrin scales attractive, the rivets smooth, and the steel blades well polished. I have several Bear & Son knives and will buy some more.
