When you sit down to plan how to make everyone on your Christmas list happy, remember that a good knife is always a treasured gift.
Whether it’s for a hunter, camper, hiker or someone who has a daily need for man’s oldest tool, Bear & Son Cutlery has the answer. From their full-range catalog of knives — all made in the USA — they have a knife to fit every need. For example:
To handle those everyday tasks, at home or at work, four additions to Bear & Son’s popular 4th Generation Series can do the job. Featuring high-polished 1095 carbon steel blades, they have distinctive Heritage Walnut handles with the 4th Generation shield embedded. The four models are the 3-3/4-inch C205 lockback; the 3-7/8”-inch C247 three-bladed Stockman; the 3-1/2-inch C2281 Barlow with two blades; and the 3” C254 1/2 Trapper with two blades. MSRPs range from $44.99 to $52.50.
For the hunter, Bear & Son has three new 7” Skinners. All three feature a 2-7/8-inch hollow-ground drop-point blade, made of high carbon stainless steel, and they have nickel silver bolsters except the orange textured G10. They weigh 4.1 ounces and come with a genuine leather sheath. For options in look and feel, there is a choice of three handle materials – Orange Textured G10, Camowood and Genuine India Stag BoneTM. MSRPs range from $53.99 to $80.99.
A rugged sideliner for any outdoorsman, the Rancor is the answer. Available either as a modified drop-point or modified clip, the 2-7/8-inch blade is made of top-quality CPM S30V stainless steel, with a Rockwell hardness of 58-60. Blade options are a Titanium (TI) coating or bead blast finish, with or without partial serrations. Handle materials are Desert Sand G10, Black G10 and Black Aircraft Aluminum. For tip down carry and easy access, all five Rancor models have a pocket clip. MSRPs range from $135 to $165.
