The Bear & Son 115B butterfly knife is built with durable black epoxy coated zinc handles with a skeletonized design for reduced weight. It features a stainless steel drop point blade with a black coating that matches the handles for a unified aesthetic. This is a solid mid-range butterfly knife, made right here in the USA.
This is my first knife In a very long time, having it for a few days it is a great sturdy knife with a sharp blade. I think the price is cheep for how good the knife is.
I got this knife around January.I have used it for every day use and it has held up amazing. Overall a very nice knife. If I had one complaint it would be that the bevel is a bit off. Other than that an amazing knife especially for the price.
When I was 11 or 12 I traded an older kid some cassettes I filled with Zeppelin, Floyd, etc and traded them with an older kid for a butterfly knife. Amongst my buddies, I has hot shit because of this. I taught myself how to flip it open and closed in short order and I would practice that whenever - watching TV, goofing with friends... Then, you know, you grow up, move out, life happens. Then a couple weeks ago I'm watching some mediocre action movie and the bad guy slings one open, so I comment to my friend "I can do that." He calls BS - the next thing you know I order this beauty. And, sure enough, I can still do. The knife itself is way stiffer - maybe it will loosen up with use. But, the construction is solid, weight is good, and I dig the textured handle for a good grip. I recommend it. Now I gotta hit youtube to see if there's any other nifty stuff I can do with it! Cheers, all!
It is a great knife for just pratical use, the blade is pretty sharp, unfortunately I cannot recommend this for flipping. This is due to the fact that the tang pin is very thin and will come loose after about a week of flipping, my pin is still in, but I have a feeling that it will most likely fall out soon enough. There is also the fact that the latch likes to get stuck in between the handles while doing various tricks, therefore ruining parts of the blade. there is also a lot of handle play. overall just dont buy it for flipping, if you want it for an EDC then I think you should go for it, otherwise I would recomend saving up and buying either a BRS replicant, or a benchmade 51, these knives will hold up a lot better and use zen pins instead of the traditional tang pins.
I got this to see if I would even like flipping. It works great for beginners like me. I've had it for over 3 months, and I flip a few times a week with it, and it's still holding strong. (I only do the most basic flips) The only downside is that the lock gets in the way of the blade, which could potentially damage the blade
first off, the blade material is 1095 steel not 440, i like 1095 better anyway. not a bad practice/beater. could use a pocket clip to make it perfect.
Ok so this is my first butterfly I’ve had it about for 5 days it holds up but the bolts that hold the handles to the blade are loosening up so when I’m flipping here and there the latch will get stuck on the blade but will just come right undon so far pretty good
A good starter for anybodies collection, or just a good carry knife, pretty strong material for both the blade and the handle, it's not perfect, the lock is loose and not very strong, but the knife holds together very well, plus it's black, and I just love the look of the black balisongs
I’ve had it for about 4 months but it’s just now fell apart I loved every minute of flipping it it was super sharp but I guess you get what you pay for
This item should be like $20 to buy as a beginner in Bali, the current price is too much and you can find much better quality in other products.
A true stain on American manufacturing. This knife is so littered with quality control issues it's actually embarrassing to own. The black coating comes with chips on the corners. The blade is seriously as dull as a butter knife. The edge grind isn't even remotely symmetrical. The rivets holding the blade to the handles look like the press missed halfway off the rivet. The logo isn't even square to the blade. I've never owned a knife from bear and sons until now and I certainly will never get one again. Truthfully saddened... If you are looking for a beginner balisong, PLEASE look elsewhere. This is within the price range where you can get high-quality budget knives, this knife however is gas station quality at twice the price of a gas station knife.
