About Us

Our history.

Started in 1999 by Victor Asaoka, David and Stephen Street, Big Bear Tools began with the intention of bringing the highest-quality edge tools and edge tool related products to the North American tradesperson.

Almost 20 years later, Big Bear Tools has seen a strong following develop and an extensive dealer network to go with it. With great plans for the future Big Bear Tools steps into its third decade more hotly in pursuit of the highest quality edge tools available today.

We carry pruners, axes, arborist gear, and sharpening equipment from Silky Saws, Notch Equipment, Tormek, Original LÖWE, Weaver Leather, Fred Marvin, and more.

Quality remains the mantra this day and into the future for Big Bear Tools. Check with us regularly— there are certainly some surprises ahead! Many thanks for your interest in fine tools; we share the interest with you.
