The Bear & Son 540D Damascus Genuine India Stag Bone Mini Executive Lockback Knife features a stag bone handle with a high definition damascus steel blade. The handle is light and contoured for a great feel and secure grip. Damascus steel combines steels of different properties and produces blades with extraordinary toughness and edge-holding ability. Viewed under a microscope, the cutting edge of a Damascus blade displays tiny saw-tooth carbides which are formed by forging in a coal fire. This enables the blade to cut even when it feels dull to the touch. Every piece of Damascus is as unique as a thumb print. Additional features include a hollow ground blade, nickel silver bolsters, and positive lock with redesigned lock mechanism. This knife has an open length of 4 3/4-inches, closed length of 2 1/2-inches, blade length of 1 1/2-inches and weight of 0.9-ounces. Bear & Son knives are all proudly built in the USA with a hand finish that develops unforgettable quality. Each knife has a collectors stamp with a dated dotted system that is ideal for knife collectors. Highest quality materials and years of knife making experience combine to make Bear & Son knives comfortable in hand and tough enough to go the distance.

The Damascus blade and stag bone handle are really the only reason for buying this knife. The materials are nice (not amazing), but the machining falls short of other brands.
Pros: Decent materials, attractive, made in U.S.A., decent quality blade with good factory edge.
Cons: The Bear & Son catalog and Amazon title list this knife as being 2 1/2" (closed). In reality it's only 2 1/4". The word "Mini" is certainly accurate (and not necessarily bad). The materials are reasonably good, but the overall machining is only medium. The blade of the first knife I ordered didn't line up properly when locked open - It leaned forward slightly, giving the knife a slightly broken-backed look (otherwise functioned fine). I might overlook this with a cheap knife, but the price of this one warrants better. So, I ordered a second one. Its blade aligned properly, but had a noticeable lateral wobble, which I figured would only get worse with use. (The blade is actually a...
This is a very well made (in the USA) knife. It is a little smaller than I expected, though. The 2 1/8 inch dimension in the description is the length of the knife with the blade closed. I was hoping that was the blade length. The blade length is only 1 1/4". It will feel small, if you have big hands, which I do not. That said, the Damascus steel blade (the real deal) should stay sharp for a long time. It is almost too pretty to keep in a pocket with change or keys.
It's SMALL! So if you have giant hands/fingers it maybe hard to hold. It fits my small blue jean pocket perfect and after the blade's black oxide oxide wears off it will be easier to see the dimascus grain in the steel.
