The Bear & Son 117S butterfly knife is built with durable gray epoxy coated zinc handles with a skeletonized design for reduced weight. It features a stainless steel blade with a stonewash finish and a single tang pin. This is a solid mid-range butterfly knife, made right here in the USA.
I’ve had it for about a year now , dropped it countless times it’s still all in tact, it’s quit heavy and will definitely make your knuckles red if you are new to balisongs , but it’s very fun and it’s nice to have a heavy balisong for a change, makes the movements faster and the tricks look cooler.
Ordered 2 knives March 1, 2023 they broke March 24th,2023 and April 1, 2023 for the second one. No knife should break that quickly. The pins did not feel like metal and if the pivot pins are made of metal the metal is extremely weak. Please be cautious about buying this knife.
