Wondering if anyone has the date stamps for Bear knives? Have a knife with 1 dot to the left of the BEAR stamp. Thanks. J.O',

Here's one that Bear & Son did a good job on. On a scale of 1 to 10 for quality I'd give this knife an 8.5. ::tu::

Nev, I like the knives. Bear hasn’t the best quality control. Some I have are excellent, others less than perfect. From the photo, I’d say those are excellent. Not sure I’d like the pocket clips though. I’d have to carry it awhile then decide to keep or remove them. They are convenient for carrying but sometimes get in the way when using the knife. All in all they look great. For myself that’s the perfect pattern for a working knife.
"The Edge...There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

I really like em' too Nev! They appear to be seriously solid sodbusters, nice! And those clips are so small n' cute that I'd consider leaving them on, and that's a BIG concession on my part! 8)

Great bowie John! I remember when you first got it and were scrutinizing whether you liked it or not, I'm glad you ended up liking it! 8)

Thanks Marco and Oscar ::handshake::
I can go either way on pocket clips. The clips on these knives are so tight you can't pull the knives out of your pocket easy.Way to tight. ::dang:: :shock:
