About Us

Whether for simple backyard gardening, kitchen cuisine works, or outdoor and mountain camping and hunting, Big Bear Tools is here to provide the best quality tools and equipment that you need.

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. For that same reason, we believe as a company that the quality of products we offer depends and relies on the connection between our trade partners and clients. Our core value stands in a foundation of hard work, collective trust, and a top-notch customer service relationship that we have in each patron that we serve every day. As we continue to innovate the quality of service we have, we continue to strive in improving our product line-up tailor fitting it to the demands of the daily grind of blades and teeth. It greatly translates to the two decades of accountability and trust we built, hand-in-hand with our customers, clients, and dealers.

Over 20 years later, Big Bear Tools has seen a strong following develop, and an extensive dealer network to go with it. We continue to grow by creating new pathways and opportunities, checking new ideas in the high-quality import markets from Sweden and Germany to Japan and America for new products to offer. With great plans for the future, Big Bear Tools in its third decade is more hotly in pursuit of the highest quality edge tools available today.
