Bear Cub

Regular price £265.00

Tax included

Only 1 in stock

The Bear Cub is one of our personal favourites, an exercise in shrinking down a full size knife, in to something more manageable. 

Made from the usual suspects materials wise, micarta scales offer great grip, AEBL brings toughness, edge holding, not ridiculously hard to sharpen out in the wilderness and great patina resistance. We know we have a great bushcraft knife which dips a toe or two in to the survival world.

To add some extra kudos we've tattooed the underside of the spine with the old Norse quote "No lamb for the lazy wolf". On the opposite side to the makers mark we've tattood on our Hardrada image, the last great Viking king that was slain by the English with an arrow through the eye at the battle of Stamford bridge near York. 

These are essentially a 4" version of the Freyr Woodsman, we were asked to make it smaller and we liked it that much we kept it in the range. 

  • OAL 9"
  • Cutting edge 4.2"
  • AEBL stainless steel 
  • 3.5mm stock
  • Flared brass tubes

  • Kydex sheath (reversible belt clip for lefties)
  • Sharp 90 degree spine for ferro rods or scraping 



We currently ship knives via UPS with a proof of age signature upon delivery to comply with current legislation, you’re parcel is also tracked with this service. All other products will be sent via the appropriate shipper, don't worry, this means one we trust and can rely on.



Once the knife is bought we complete with a quick I.D check to confirm you are over 18 years old, to keep us legal with the current laws around the sale of knives over the internet.


Our knives come with a common sense guarantee, covering craftsmanship and materials. This does not cover abuse or general wear and tear, for example, over time knives get dull and need basic sharpening and maintenance, carbon steel knives can pick up patina or rust if put away wet, left in damp atmospheres or generally neglected.

All of our knives are made by hand and as such none are perfect, if you look hard enough and study the knife intently, you may find the odd light scratch or blemish picked up in the making process. We call this character and it's what makes your knife yours, it will in fact pick up much worse over a short period of time through normal use and begin to tell its own story.
