Reflecting the best of its Finnish heritage, the Finn Bear is an extremely affordable version of Cold Steel's popular Sisu™. It’s ideal for hunting, fishing or camping trips, and makes an efficient utility knife as well!
The 4116 Krupp Stainless blade is hollow ground and given an Rc hardness of 56-57, so it will hold a good edge and is easy to re-sharpen. Its blade shape is centuries old and practical because of its good sturdy point for piercing and long belly for skinning, cutting and carving. It’s big and strong enough to skin a Moose, yet thin and delicate enough to slice a tomato or cut up an apple.
The Finn Bear has a straight handle with a slightly ribbed texture for traction. Its modified diamond cross section will fit your hand like a glove and accommodate a wide variety of gripping methods. It’s made of tough Polypropylene, so it’s impervious to the elements and won’t swell, shrink, rot or crack.
For safety and convenience, the Finn Bear comes with a deep pouch style Cordura sheath and generously sized belt loop so it can be worn on the waist, slung around the neck or tossed into a duffle bag or tackle box.

Elegant, lightweight, affordable and perfect for tBy: Brendan on 13 January 2015I have been using this knife whilst hunting with my bow and I gotta say it's one of my favourite knives. So lightweight you'll forget it's in your pocket (I did) so strong that I've cut through the metal of a fence to retrieve a stuck arrow and held its razor sharp factory edge even through months of occasional use with no signs of wear. One of the greatest things is its price, one of the better all round knives out there that I have had experience with.
