posted on May 2, 2020

Bear OPS is introducing the new Bear OPS MC-800-TI-S pocket knife, the new knife from Bear & Son Cutlery. Made in America, it combines premium materials with superior performance at an affordable price.

Designed to be a useful everyday carry knife which doesn’t attract attention to itself, the Bear OPS MC-800-TI-S is designed to be carried discreetly and yet still be able to be deployed quickly. The knife features a low-profile, fast-action framelock knife with a satin-finished 2¾-inch blade made from S35VN steel. The blade deploys smoothly using the integrated flipper that rides on ball bearing washers. Tough, titanium stone-washed handles are lightweight, durable and ergonomically designed for a positive, comfortable grip and excellent blade control.

This modern EDC knife also features an ambidextrous pocket clip for deep carry, making it a perfect choice for those situations where a knife handle in your pocket would bring unwanted attention. Solidly built and delivering high levels of performance, the OPS MC-800 TI-S is backed by a lifetime warranty.

Blade Material: S35VN steel with satin finish

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
