From Bear OPS comes the Bold Action XVI, a durable automatic folder that's made for use. This knife has a Wharncliffe blade, meant for powerful cuts in daily tasks and self-defense. The blade steel is Sandvik 14C28N, good all-around steel for corrosion resistance, edge retention, and ease of sharpening. The handle is lightweight aluminum, with an ergonomic design that molds to your hand and jimping to keep it from slipping. The automatic single-action opening is fast and powerful, and the firing button is recessed so it slides easily from your pocket. This knife also features a safety mechanism to prevent accidental deployment.
