WHITE SMOOTH BONE DA­M­AS­CUS

Recoil - - Unusual Suspect -

411:

This Bear & Son folder fuses the look of an an­cient Asian blade with vin­tage Amer­i­can aes­thet­ics to cre­ate an un­usual style — in a good way. This trap­per­style folder fea­tures a smooth bone han­dle with nickel sil­ver bol­sters sur­round­ing the el­e­gant Da­m­as­cus blades. Un­for­tu­nately, both its clip-point blade and its spey blade (which can be used for neu­ter­ing live­stock or skin­ning game) didn’t cut as well dur­ing our test­ing. Made in the USA.

PROS:

Comes with two blades: a ver­sa­tile clip-point and a spey for neu­ter­ing or skin­ning an­i­mals. Fas­ci­nat­ing fu­sion of vis­ual styles Rel­a­tively af­ford­able for a Da­m­as­cus knife

CONS:

The blades some­times “pushed through” cuts rather than slic­ing smoothly dur­ing our test cut­ting

Clas­sic de­sign means no thumb­studs or pocket clip
