The Fox Bean Gen 2 Stonewashed is a cool, small pocket knife, designed by Serge Panchenko. His Bean pocket knife has been a favourite for years as a custom knife. Now the Bean is also available as an affordable production pocket knife. The same design, a lot more affordable.
You open the Black Fox Bean with the thumb hole. The knife moves smoothly thanks to the ball bearings. When opened the blade is kept in place by a remarkable slipjoint mechanism. This means that the knife stays open, but can also easily be closed. It doesn't contain a real lock, making it legal in many places in Europe.
Characterizing for the design of the Bean is the combination of sleek lines and round shapes. As such it feels great in hand. Combined with its limited size it also looks friendly.
This edition is enhanced with a handle made from stainless steel which, like the blade, is enhanced with a stonewashed finish. As a result traces of use will hardly be visible. The blade is made from 440C steel. A stainless type of steel that offers a great balance between sharpness retention, corrosion resistance, and how easy it is to sharpen. So simply good! Especially for this price.
