Preview: Bear & Son A08 Series Knives

posted on April 11, 2021
In its latest A08 series of automatic knives, Bear & Son Cutlery created a blade that looks and feels like a traditional lockback design but incorporates the lightning-fast opening action found in the company's other automatic knives.

Each Bear & Son Cutlery A08 series knife, you'll find quality, durable materials packaged in an affordable design. The knife is crafted with a 440 series stainless-steel blade, which is paired with a precision-cut locking mechanism that keeps the blade deployed and secured in place when performing daily tasks. To deploy the blade, simply push the recessed button, and the knife blade folds into place.

Several different handle materials are available in the A08 series of knives. You'll find rosewood, India stag bone and black G10 laminate options in the collection, each finely fit and finished and durable enough to stand up to daily carry. There's a polished pocket clip along with the polished deployment button, and you'll also find a lanyard hole for retention, too.

The Bear & Son Cutlery A08 series of knives measures 3.875" when closed and weighs only 2.9 ozs., making it easy to slip into a pocket for all-day carry. When deployed, you'll find a knife blade measuring 2.75" long and an overall profile measuring 6.625" long. Suggested retail pricing on the A08 series of knives starts at $158.75 and tops out at $174.99, depending on options. For more details, visit
