Bear Ops-An Awesome Knife!

The Bear OPS Swipe III Assisted Opening Knife is an amazing tool! When the thumb-flip is gently pressed, the blade snaps open and the knife is ready to use immediately! No questions asked! To put it away, just push the liner lock to the left and the blade is free to close. It operates so cleanly and smooth. The blade is razor sharp out of the box. The pocket clip keeps the knife at your disposal for all your cutting tasks. A great knife from a great USA Company! I love it!

Top quality, with excellent fit and finish.

A top quality knife that is just as good in the hand as it is for fine looks. Packaging is fantastic. Black gift box with Bear Ops logo and Made in USA is just the beginning. Inside is a very nice black bag with drawstring and a warranty/care card. The knife features black aluminum scales that are perfectly matched to the liner lock stainless frame. The blade is a drop point stainless steel that is beautifully finished, even on the inside edges. The balance and feel of this knife is superb. The assisted opening, while a little different from other knives I have, can be mastered and deploys to full lockup quickly. The weight allows for easy EDC yet lets you know you are holding a working knife. Overall, an excellent knife from a quality American company.

Try a different company

I love to support American made knife companies, however, most likely, I can't see myself buying from this company again. The knife is impossible to open one-handed. You need two hands and it still kills your fingers trying to open the blade. Your fingers will be hurt (to say the least) after opening the blade time and time again. Trust me, I played with this several times. The steel isn't very good quality, which is surprising because Kershaw uses 14C28N steel and it's absolutely fantastic. The aluminum handle feels light, but not sturdy enough. It feels more like a cheap China tool from Lowe's. The only thing going for this knife is that it's aesthetically pleasing; other than that, I wouldn't touch it. Please look elsewhere if you want a quality knife.
