My Old Bear got here and I do admire it. The size is larger than my Opinel, so it fits a different niche, which makes it more valuable to me, and the carbon blade seems excellent, as does the walnut handle. I'd have preferred the locking mechanism be made of metal, not plastic, but if it lasts, I have no complaints. It's a beauty. As I said, folding knives collect me.
