This will be an updating review.  I’ll add to it frequently… stay tuned.

I’m impressed…..I’ll start there. WOW….is my next reply.

Fact: I contacted (I like that better than the new school “reached out”) to BEAR Cutlery in Alabama in Oct, 2019 via email seeking to

review a knife from their line up.

The folks @ Bear Cutlery selected this BEAR OPS.  I received it Nov. 15, 2019.

Fact: I’ve carried this almost daily since then and have been and still am happy, very happy actually, with this tactical style pocket clip EDC knife.

Around Christmas I prepared a pan of vegetables for cooking. I cut green peppers, carrots, potatoes, orange peppers all with this knife!

I also sliced a cucumber for peanut butter….oh yes! Try it on a sandwich!!

From past couple days:


UPDATE: 2/7/2020

Cut an orange today and wanted to be sure the sticky was gone. Out of my pocket it came and I rubbed it clean with some Isopropyl Alcohol.

I thought, let me check the edge.  I stropped it a couple times and attempted to cut paper. It was ok, but not what I like.

I stroked the BEAR OPS RECON on a super hard/smooth stone. Then stropped. YES. Perfect! Just the way I like it.

I also cut cardboard and rope.

Stay tuned….this is a running/updating review!!
