Have you seen the Bear and Son Torched Bone series? Rumor has it this is the first series of traditional pocketknives they’ve done with torched bone handles. The overall look is well worth a look.
Mounted on nickel silver frame and secured with nickel silver pins, each knife in this series features sawcut torched bone handles. Accenting the handles are nickel silver bolsters, which adds a nice touch to the weathered appearance.
The blades on each knife is 416-layer Bear Strike High Definition Damascus steel. Bear & Son tells us, “416 layers of medium and high carbon steel, with added nickel to magnify definition. Flexibility is superb, and every Damascus blade is as distinct as a fingerprint. Damascus blades also have “secret” sharpness – never feels as sharp to the touch as it really is!”
Our favorite knife in the Bear and Son Torched Bone series is the locking cowhand. The 2.875” clip point opens with a thumb hole and locks in place with a back lock. The series is available in the following patterns: Stockman, 5” Toothpick, 3” Toothpick, Locking Cowhand, 4.125” Trapper, 3.5” Trapper, and Lockback.
