The Lowdown

The strikingly gorgeous Bear Creek Antero is a real show stopper with its half-polished/half-unpolished blade finish.  The kiritsuke style blade is tailor made to easily work with proteins (it’s awesome with fish), and handle all manner of vegetable cutting tasks . The reverse tanto profile makes for an easy to wield knife, yet delicate. We designed this knife to have the versatility of rocking motion cutting as well. Hand forged from 440c Martensitic Stainless Steel, the blade features a cutting edge of 16 degrees.  The Rosewood handle fittingly compliments the artistic blade. The “wow factor” of these knifes is not to be outdone by the performance of the knife. Razor sharp durability and unmatched styling are wonderfully executed in every Bear Creek Knife.

A Bear Creek Knife must have all the ingredients of a great knife. It...

 …must be different 

Aren’t you tired of the boring black handled knife? We are too. We build our knives for function, sure, but we figured, “why not make it attractive too?” Bear Creek Knives are showstoppers in your kitchen. Because the beauty matches the performance, you can be sure you have the ultimate knife!   

 …must be Hand-made 

At Bear Creek Knives, we love food, friends, and family. We also are of the mindset that having a great kitchen knife matters—and it does. 

It is these principles that inspired us to begin making knives that are smart, functional, and of the highest quality (i.e., durable). And just like the best meals, our knives are handmade. Having encountered mass-produced knives and found them lacking, we set out to make a knife that not only meets—but exceeds—the expectations of even the most discriminating chef. We wanted the care and effort we put into every knife we make to be evident for the lifetime of your Bear Creek knife. 

 …must be of high-quality Construction 

Despite the wide availability of essentially “disposable” cookie-cutter, mass-produced knives with the predictable (and cheap) black handles, we recognize that to many, knives are very personal. Personal care is put into each knife we make. Simply put, Bear Creek Knives are built to last, and we make them from the best materials we can source- like the special, yet tried and true 440c Martensitic Stainless Steel. Great knives become family heirlooms and are passed down through the generations. There is something truly spectacular about the feel of a high-quality knife in your hand. It should inspire your creativity and desire to make something special. 

 …must Perform 

The first time you cut something with your Bear Creek knife, you feel the performance.  It’s the culmination of the hand forging, the premium steel, the exotic handle materials, and the ergonomic sculpting of the handle. There is nothing quite like it, anywhere.
