Now available with Kizers exclusive Fat Carbon material "Medusa"
Yes, it's not a myth or some Aussie Folklore. We have verified that FatCarbon Drop Bears are real and they have finally landed down under!
- Fat Carbon Scales
- Premium blade steel - S35VN, Elmax or 20CV
- D-Shape Pivot
- DED System
- Gemini Spring System (tuneable lock tension) - see the original Drop Bear page for more information)
- Perfect size and ergos
- Versatile blade shape
- reliable lock system
What does that all mean? Well, you get an Axis lock knife which can be easily disassembled to tune the springs to the exact tension you prefer. Less tension for the fidgeters and a tighter tune for those who want to use this as a daily tool.
As Aussies, we know that a knife has big boots to fill being named after an Australian icon! And this knife does not fall short. After handling a Drop Bear at Adventure Carry, we highly rate it and we know that this will be one popular knife that you will all love. Also, this knife will make for a great conversation starter at any camp site.

This knife is an absolute cracker. Feels great in the hand, lock-up is tight and action is smooth as silk. The Elmax blade is sharp as straight out of the box. I have no complaints about performance and the quality of the build. However, if there was anything that let this knife down it would have to be the disappointing Arctic Storm Fat Carbon scales. I guess I was expecting them to look just like the pictures advertised because there was no information suggesting there will be large variations in the pattern. Mitch did a great job of getting me this knife on the last day of postage before Christmas. Arrived in good nik without any damage to the box.
I bought the Elmax steel version, more because I haven't had a knife in this steel before. It is the sharpest knife I've bought and has retained the edge since I've had it. The action with the clutch lock is amazingly good, very easy to open and close, very smooth action. Great looking knife with an excellent feel in the hand. I don't use it as an EDC mainly because I prefer slimmer blades for my work (just bought the Kizer original 20 CV in fat carbon - not as sharp out of the box as the Drop Bear) but if I need a really sharp knife for more robust jobs this is perfect. I've cut shade cloth, cardboard, irrigation pipe, plant stems etc with no problems.
