Bear Ops, a brand operating under the Bear & Son Cutlery umbrella, has rolled out its new AC-325 Bold Action III mini-stiletto automatic knife.

Designed for personal protection, the Bear Ops AC-325 Bold Action III features a 1.875-inch blade made of Sandvik 14C28N steel. The blade opens with the simple push of the recess button and comes with either a bead or a black finish.

Meanwhile, the AC-325 knife boasts black aircraft aluminum handles which are built to withstand daily use. They offer a comfortable fit in the hands of the user and are essentially maintenance-free. The handle also includes a Bear Ops safety. This prevents unintentional deployment. In addition, the pocket clip gives you the option for tip up carry and quick access.

“The dynamite combination of small size and striking durability, the AC-325 Series are a great choice as a lightweight and sleek automatic knife,” Bear Ops says in the press release.

The AC-325 Bold Action III is California-compliant. The MSRP is $117.99 for the bead-finish blade, and $121.99 for the black finish. See the specs below. For more information, visit
