Bear and Son Cutlery in Tune with Today’s Knife Buyers

Bear and Son Knife

As Americans become more and more concerned about jobs lost to overseas sources, they resent it when they see the words “Made in China” on a product. And they have less confidence in the quality and reliability – especially if it's a knife.

Bear & Son Cutlery meets the test because 100 percent of their high-quality knives are made in their state-of-the-art factory in Jacksonville, Alabama.

“Our fundamental position is clear and absolute: we make high-quality knives, and we make them all right here in the U.S.A.,” said Ken Griffey, president. “And when we say Made in America, we mean everything – the steels, every component right down to the tiniest screws, and of course every step of manufacturing.”

Joining Griffey on the Bear & Son management team are his wife Sandy and son Matt, making it what he calls “a family company, and we are dedicated to keeping it exactly that way.”

With a wide range of knives – from big Bowies to popular Butterflies – Bear & Son covers almost every knife need. Their Bear OPS Division features a growing line of rugged tactical/survival knives, such as the new C-200-B4 Constant. It's 9-3/8-inch overall, with a full-tang, modified drop-point blade made of 154CM premium steel.
