Jacksonville, Alabama – Bear OPS, a manufacturer of high-quality tactical knives based in Alabama, invites all law enforcement, military and veteran personnel, and security specialists to visit their booth 12685 during the 2024 SHOT Show and explore their diverse range of new pocketknives. On display will be the new Out-The-Front series, premium butterfly knives, automatics, fixed blades, and tactical folding knives.

One new lightweight knife on display will be the Bear OPS Mini Rancor IX. This folder features a 2.30-inch drop point made of D2 tool steel, noted for its durability and superior edge retention. The pocketknife is available in a tan or green Zytel handle model, each with pronounced jimping, ambidextrous thumb studs, and a slide lock mechanism. Boasting light weight at a mere 1.60 oz., the Mini Rancor IX is tailored for daily carry, both on- and off-duty.

Also debuting at the 2024 SHOT Show, Bear OPS presents their Out-The-Front automatic knife series. Featuring a D2 steel blade enclosed within a black G10 handle, this knife effortlessly combines style with functionality. The incorporation of a CNC-machined metal slide button ensures rapid and dependable blade deployment. To further enhance performance, the blade opens with a precision ball bearing mechanism, facilitating smooth and precise blade operation. For greater versatility, users have the option to select between the drop point and tanto blade configurations, solidifying Bear OPS’s reputation for blending traditional craftsmanship with modern innovations.

Another must-have for 2024 is the Bear OPS AC-1900 Bold Action, a new automatic knife that blends traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design sensibilities. Shaped from D2 Steel, this modified drop-point blade exemplifies both strength with style and deploys with a simple press on the recessed button. The meticulously machined aluminum handle with a refined flat grey finish highlights its contemporary allure. A distinguishing feature is its pen-style pocket clip, facilitating discreet and streamlined carry. Stop by the booth and see the AC-1900 in person.
