Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
GREAT OLD TIME KNIFE!
First the knife is sharp right out of the box.Second , the craftsmanship and design is superb. Bear and son uses high quality materials on their steel , liners , and handles. Well worth the priceThird , easy old time open ie. One Arm Bandit. After the Civil War many returning vets had lost limbs. This blade was designed to open by a one arm man. Catch the indented blade tip on pants pocket, belt loop, boot heel, etc. and it opens. No assisted open ; no thumb stud. Just like it was in 1866.Fourth , it has a belly on about the first half of the blade which is designed to enhance cutting ; which it greatly does.I use this knife to open mail all the way up to cutting straps on 100 lb. boxes of bearings at work. If you're in the market for a good dependable pocket knife with old time nostalgiato boot , buy this knife. You want regret it.
