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.
