Love Bear MGC and BladeHQ
Ross M. on Jun 29, 2016

Love my knife. Bear and Son is my favorite brand along with Kershaw. My knife looks spectacular and BladeHQ has super fast shipping. Love it.

Love my knife
Michael D. on Jan 25, 2019

This is my second Bear and son knife just love it it’s perfect made not too tight not too soft just perfect I only will buy BEAR AND SON They make the best top quality knives just absolutely satisfied and I do enjoy my life I will have this knife for years to come. So if I was you I’ll buy this knife and the handle is made out of bone. You will not regret it you will be stuck with bear and son you won’t shop no was else and you definitely will never get the quality of a bear and son knife if you buy a Chinese Butterfly Knives which is totally garbage compare to the top quality of a Bear and son!!!so hurry and buy now

Very Nice For First Balisong
Roman G. on Jan 20, 2016

This is my first Balisong and it's really nice works well and flips nice.It isn't super loose but isn't super tight. when you first get it i suggest just playing with it for a little bit before doing anything like a Helix and it will be loose enough in no time. It isn't razor sharp but it is sharp enough to cut most things you will need to cut with it and cut yourself so be careful when flipping.

Well Made
Ed L. on Jul 9, 2015

This was my 1st Bear knife. Love the stag handles, smooth action, and the quality of this knife.

not the best
Dan m. on Aug 27, 2020

The stag handles are terrible. Everytime I flip the screws for the stag handles come loose every single time I re-screw it it just comes loose again for the SIMPLEST TRICKS LIKE COME ON I DIDNT EVEN DO ANYTHING EXTREME AND ITS ALREADY COMING LOOSE AND IF I DO ANOTHER TRICK THE SCREWS BECOME FULLY LOOSE

Jon W. on Apr 17, 2019

It's an ok balisong. Off the bat, it's a little clunky. You can tell it wasn't designed by a balisong user. Mine came covered in metal shavings. Enough shavings to scratch the finish of the blade. Not impressed at all. Shame since it's a good size to carry.

A Flawed Essential
Lyndon W. on Aug 8, 2021

The knife's feeling, handle, blade, and weight are all amazing, but one of the screws is constantly coming loose. I had to go out and buy a hex key set to keep using it. It doesn't get better after being tightened, it keeps coming loose after about 10 minutes of use. I may not get another knife from this site just because something so essential was done wrong. It's really a shame as I loved everything about it, but I can't use it for long as it came.
