Bear Grylls is the quintessential badass outdoorsman. His insanity and advice for surviving in extreme situations has literally saved people’s lives, so if you’ve ever wondered why he puts himself in these dangerous conditions, it’s for our own benefit. In honor of Bear Grylls, we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 coolest Bear Grylls moments. Here they are.

#5 Bear Climbs a Bridge and Dodges a Train

There are few people that truly have nerves of steel, but Bear Grylls is definitely one of them. In this clip, Bear climbs to the top of a bridge and dodges a train. He gets a lot of flack for staging scenes to demonstrate what to do in certain situations, but there’s no doubt that this feat of survival is absolutely badass.

#4 Bear Kills a Reindeer and Eats Its Heart

The wild is brutal, so it shouldn’t be a shock that surviving in the wild requires doing callous things like stabbing a reindeer through its head and drinking its dripping blood. This scene is definitely not something Santa Claus would want to watch, but it shows Bear’s skill in capturing, killing and utilizing an animal for survival. This also would have been nearly impossible to do without a good knife.

#3 Bear Creates an Urban Explosion

One of the best things about Bear is his resourcefulness. He can take ordinary tools or items found in the wild and use them for new purposes, so it’s no surprise that he can do even cooler things with items found in abandoned urban environments. In this scene, Bear is trying to get into a derelict building by using explosive gases to burst through a door.

#2 Bear Eats a Rhino Larvae Beetle

There’s almost nothing n the wild Bear hasn’t eaten,  but this clip may take the cake. If you ever find yourself stranded in the bush, it might be wise to pass over giant larvae as a meals

#1 Any “Polar Bear” Swim

This might be a cop-out, but there have been several scenes where Bear has put himself in the situation of being in the water at subzero temperatures. This feat is amazing for anyone, but Bear has done it a couple times and in the clip below, even swims underneath solid ice where he could potentially get trapped. If you stay in the water long enough, your body could shut down and you could die very quickly, not to mention what could happen to your extremities once you’re out of the water. That’s why his propensity to jump into the icy waters tops our list of most badass Bear Grylls scenes.

Bear Grylls Gerber Ultimate Survival Knife

In the word of survival, it’s hard to best Bear Grylls.  The star of Man V. Wild spends most of his TV-time hurdling cliffs, dunking himself in sub-zero ice pools, eating vile animal parts and doing other badass stuff that only a guy whose first name is Bear can do.

At his side is usually a survival knife, which is probably why Gerber decided it was wise to team up with Grylls to pump out a signature collection of Bear Grylls blades.

The latest knife to be unveiled is the Ultimate Knife, a 4.8-inch, stainless steel, serrated, drop-point blade with a range of other features.

One of the most impressive features is the fire starter, which consists of a ferrocerium rod that locks in the sheath and can be rubbed against a striker notch on the back of the knife blade to produce sparks.  The knife also has its own diamond sharpener for sharpening on the go.

The knife’s sheath is made of lightweight nylon and contains an emergency whistle and special survival instructions from Bear, in case you get stuck in a sticky situation and need some sage advice.

The knife is available from a number of distributors and retails for around $60  Anyway, if you want to see the blade and get a description from the Bear himself, here’s a short promo video.
