Got a Bear and Son 9.5 in.  Bowie.  Carbon blade with stag handle.

I really like it.

I have one of their Bowies laying around here somewhere. Got it in a trade. It has a Damascus blade. Over priced knives in my opinion. Finish on the handles and brass guard reaks of belt sander quality. If you want to make quality items, never consider belt sander work to be the final finish. The sheath is but a cheap Walmart special.

Quality work should have a final hand finish put to it. If not, one should not put a custom price on it. This knife will be reworked sometime down the road and a proper sheath made up for it.

Sorry if I am being over critical, but I know good work, do good work myself, and know a bunch of artisans that produce the same quality by hand for the same price.

Bear and Sons biggest problem is a reputation for poor quality and quality control. For every one good one there are ten bad ones. I have even heard of guards being put on backwards. But the rare good ones are nice
