Bear Grylls Knife

What Knife does Bear Grylls Use?

The Bear Grylls knife used on the Man vs. Wild survival show on the Discovery Channel had me stumped for quite some time. At first I thought perhaps Bears knife was one of the SOG knives used by Navy Seals or even a Becker Knife but a closer look showed Grylls knife and sheath to be much different.

Bear Grylls survival knife as far as I knew could have been a one-of-a-kind custom made knife until a sharp reader of Survival Topics chanced upon the answer. According to this source, Bear Grylls knife came about when he decided the best survival knife had not yet been made.
How Bear Grylls Knife Came to Be

Grylls teamed with the knife expert Robert Bayely to make a knife design more to the survivor’s liking. Robert Bayely is known for making excellent custom survival knives that are sought after by collectors. By teaming up with Bear they could market the famous survival hosts name on top of the knife manufacturers reputation.

The Bear Grylls knife was designed according to the following characteristics: First off Bear Grylls knife needed to be strong and durable. Of course the best survival knives are made with full tang blades. His personal preference was for a one piece knife guard, which makes sense when making a survival knife that can withstand great punishment and continue to function. Bear’s knife had to be easily carried without restricting movement and so was designed slim, lightweight, and of reasonable size.
The Grylls Survival Knife Stats

The handle of Bear Grylls survival knife is Bead blasted and attached to an RWL Swedish powder steel blade. It comes with a leather sheath that can be worn horizontally, which is my favorite position.

Blade size is 100mm X 30 X 4 (3.9inches x 1.2 x .16) which is in the range of a good survival knife. Total length 215mm (8.5 inches) and weighing in at 200grams (7 ounces).
Other Knives Used by Bear Grylls

Since this article has been written a number of readers have sent in their observations on Man Vs Wild knife sightings. Survival knives chosen for use by Bear Grylls include:

* Buck Iceman
* Titanium Pro Dive Knife
* Wenger Serrated Mountaineer Knife
* Gerber Gator Serrater with Clip Point
* Buck Iceman
* Titanium Pro Dive Knife

One reader claims he saw Bear Grylls using a Becker Knife but I have not be able to confirm this. If you know of any other blades let me know and I will post them here.
Where to Buy Bear Grylls Knife

The Bear Grylls knife is the most expensive survival knife I have covered, at 350GBP or over US$710. However if you are enamored of Bear Grylls, a knife collector, or expense is no option Bear Grylls knife might be just plain fun to have.

This "survival" knife is available 2/$1.00 at your local dollar store.

This is what I used to use when I was in college working at Christmas tree farms. A big Ojibwa Indian is the one who turned me on to these kinds of knives. They're cheap and they work.

That being said, I spent $90 on a Black-oxide coated Leatherman Wave because it is much more useful (on various problems that arise) than the 2 for 1 steak knives. Plus it looks cooler in black.

The Spork L is made of dishwasher safe polycarbonate, is heat resistant and won’t scratch delicate cooking surfaces. Made in Sweden. Color, Red.

• Lightweight 1.1 oz.
• Functional design
• 9.85 inches in length

I've got a camouflaged spork somewhere. If I can find it I'll post a photo.

Nice Spork
Fuck Bear Grills, dumb enough to join the French Foreign Legion, dumb enough to spend $750 on a blade.
For fixed blade I like K-Bar, under $100 delivered TTD
Folders I like Spyderco (almost too pricy, scared to fucking use them) but more regularly buy Jungalee, sturdy knives, price tag around $65 TTD
Did I mention fuck Bear Grills?
Camera crew saves his ass all the time. He takes unnecessary risks for ratings. Whore. He is not teaching people about survival, he teaches hot to injure themselves by hot dogging and showing off. Prick.

Dude, the knives at your site suck the B-movie monster cock.....heavily suck.....and then tries to put the balls in the mouth.
Not only are some of your weapons more dangerous to the user but you seem to have something
called a 'John Rambo' signature knife.......I don't know how to break it to you but John Rambo is dead.

I'm gonna wait for the Bear Gryllis combat spatula. It will be worth every last cent of the $1000 I'm prepared to pay.

Yep – believe it or not the 500+ buck knife is a huge part of the Knife industry, its actually the only part of the “tactical knife” industry that isn’t effected by the bad economy

Plus Bear has like a zillion bucks from his dad, he probably doesn’t even realize that people think 700 bones is allot for a knife
