Spoke on the phone with Dave reqarding a cracked vintage Hults Bruk axe.. Not sure what warranted the comment "was this... your grandfather's axe" it's so old and looks like it was beaten on.(this based on photos I sent him) .... totally irrelevant to the problem. Dave probably assumed that I was a kid. this is no way to treat a customer. .this axe is in fantastic shape for a pre 1988 axe except for the 3 inch long crack in the bit which looks like has been there for decades. ... I was asked, as I explained to Dave in an email, to contact him as the Hultz Brooks rep in the USA already approved replacement with no questions although when he found out I was in Canada he said I would have to call big bear tools to see if they could help .. DAVE didn't even bother to read the emails that I received from the US approving the warranty like I asked him to but instead basically laughed at me on the phone ... The only reason I looked into what to do with the axe was because someone told me it had a lifetime warranty. The axe has a huge crack down it and was not caused by the couple of quarter inch dents in the head... Get the facts before you assume...It's now been a week 4 emails and one phone call since first contact and I am still being ignored... I have moved on! Good thing that they are going to look after it for me in North Carolina... I will remember your service and attitude for my future more

Highly recommend Big Bear Tools!... Their service is fast and awesome! I've been dealing with Big Bear for years now,... and have always been impressed every time I speak with Dave Street and place orders. I'm very thankful for the TLC Dave has given. He's always been there for information and has helped greatly in times of need. Big Bear has never missed a beat and shows great integrity... obviously cares very much!

So, having been an online shopper for (more than) a few years, I am fairly experienced in the good, the bad, and the... ugly, of sending my electronic money out into the wild blue yonder, and waiting (sometimes forever) for my order to arrive.Blown away, today, by the order I sent in YESTERDAY, arriving at my door this evening . So upset! I haven't even had time to craft an excuse to my wife as to why I have purchased another knife!Hopefully, she loves it, too, as it is an adorable (and highly effective!) Hultafors OK4... Maybe we will need a 'his' and 'hers', shortly?Thanks, Big Bear Tools! I hope I have need (want?) of more of your products, soon!read more

Great Canadian store, they don't carry everything but what they do carry is good quality, purchased a knife from here... and had it here in my hands in a day or two. Always appreciate the fact that I can send them a quick facebook message or a phone call and they always take the time to give you answers. Best part is that the prices are very fair/cheap. would highly recommend buying from here when more
