First introduced in 1979, the Cave Bear design from Old Timer is as classic as they come. The Schrade 7OT Cave Bear Lockback has a 3.9-inch blade made of 7Cr17 high carbon stainless steel with a versatile clip point blade for everyday tasks.

In the style of the classic Old Timers, the Cave Bear features indestructible Delrin handles with the iconic sawcut pattern and nickel silver bolsters. Brass pins hold the handle together while heat-treated back springs keep the knife securely deployed.

The burly Cave Bear comes with a leather sheath for convenient carrying.

Key to Schrade's strength as a knife maker is the workforce of talented and committed craftsmen, including third and fourth generation employees.

I purchased this knife to compare it with an original U.S. Schrade old timer that I have had for years. To my surprise I could not tell them apart, except for the sheath. I gave it to my son on his return from Afghanistan and he loves it!
