If Bear are improving then that's to be applauded but why not emphasise their name and brand itself ? So far everybody seems pleased with these knives which is also good, are they stainless or carbon? Hopefully when the 'test run' ends they'll be able to stamp the blades and do away with that cheap etching. Visually, the knife does nothing for me it looks like a parts bin effort it is not a Queen knife in my book. Queen's Workhorse series using delrin and exposed pivots for ease of maintenance looked a lot better. I think if you are going to set up a 'new' knife company then give it a name let it develop its own identity or features don't pretend to revive something that's gone.
