Following the great success and continuing popularity of the Old Bear Series in the style of traditional utility pocketknives, Antonini has produced the same series in trusty carbon steel - for all fans of the original and authentic. If chromium is not added to the steel, it has the advantage of being easy to sharpen. This type of blade doesn't need an elaborate sharpening system or even help from the manufacturer. Just like in the good old days, it's enough to use the base of a plate or the bottom of an earthenware moonshine jug to get the knife back to its sharp edge for all everyday cutting tasks. With long-term use, the blade develops the rugged grey patina that also offers a certain amount of rust protection.

    Nice addition to my collection

    Posted by Richard on 3rd Sep 2020

    Bought as an alternative to an Opinel. Nicely made knife that looks good, feels good and has a decent edge out of the box.

    Great Opinel Alternative

    Posted by Richard A. on 4th Nov 2019

    As another reviewer has observed, this is a nice alternative to an Opinel, of which I have many. I bought the medium, which is roughly equivalent to the Opinel number 8, but note that the blade length is actually 8.0cm, not 8.4cm, so it very slightly shorter than advertised. If you were to compare like-for-like (SS and Walnut), the Opinels are slightly cheaper, but I like the option of carbon steel and better (Walnut) wood. Also, the figuring of the handle is very nice and similar to the photo “ Opinel's Walnut is rather plain, IMO. It's clearly hand-finished, with very slight imperfections, but this just adds to its character. Minor imperfections in the blade grind and handle finish, but I'm being very picky. The locking system is logical if slightly 'agricultura'l, but works very well, both open and closed. The collar appears to have been machined from solid (not pressed) brass “ impressive. No blade-play and well-centred. The handle benefits from a few coats of linseed oil, then it's good to go. I think I'll buy more of these!

    My go too pocket knife

    Posted by Duggs on 18th Oct 2019

    I have about 70 knifes and many of those are decent pocketknives but this is the one I carry most. Useful at work, at allotment and round the house. The lock is easily opened with side of thumb and feels good in the hand. Better system than opinels and other similar knives. Blade really holds an edge and sharpens easily. For £14 it's a no brainer. Get one !
