Bear & Son Cutlery‘s 2020 catalog includes multiple new models. The Alabama-based outfit has lots on offer, including premium-style folders, fresh balisongs, a new slipjoint series.
Latest Rancor Models
The Rancor is a model that has made multiple appearances in Bear & Son’s stable over the years. Two new variations are joining the lineup this year. A primary difference between them is the blade length: one has a 3-inch blade, while the other’s measures 2.75 inches. But in fact the designs are quite different. The 3 inch Rancor’s blade is a standard drop point shape, while the 2.75-inch Rancor’s is slenderer and sports a recurve.
New Slipjoint Series
Bear & Son is targeting another trend with two new modern-style slipjoint knives. Once again the primary distinguishing factor between the two is their size. The larger 2.38-inch model and a smaller, clipless version with a 1.5 inch blade. Both knives are firmly in the budget category, with drop point blades made from a simple, unnamed stainless steel.
Bear and Son is one of the most underrated makers out there. Most are made in Alabama.View Linked Article
