Bear and Sons Cutlery 2009-2010 Transition Series 250 Piece Limited Edition -- Available Only in Quarterly Sets
Serial numbers 1 through 50 of the Bear and Sonís Transition Series have been reserved for members of the Knife Collectors Club™ and A. G. Russell™ customers.
The 2009-2010 Transition series was created by Bear to highlight the change of their tang stamp from the dots that were used during the past decade to the new 2010 tang stamp with stars instead of the dots. The stars are Bearís salute to their American Made tradition. The knives in this series carry two tang stamps. The obverse side of the main blade is marked with the 2009 tang stamp and the reverse side of the secondary blade is marked with the 2010 tang stamp. The series contains some of the patterns made in the 24 years of knife making at the Bear and Son facility in Jacksonville, Alabama. There are a total of 12 patterns to be shipped in 4 increments. Only 250 of each knife will be produced making this an extremely limited series. We have reserved the first 50 of each model. Each knife will include a Certificate of Authenticity with some history of that pattern and an explanation of the changing of the tang stamp. All will have short nail pulls, burnt Genuine India Stag handles, high polished blades of 440A stainless at 57-59 Rc. and nickel silver bolsters and Bear and Son Shield. The obverse side of each main blade is etched "Transition Series", and all knives are serial numbered ("001 of 250" etc.) on an obverse side bolster.
We are offering these knives only in quarterly sets at this time. Made in the U. S. A.
