Microtech Knives
The Socom Elite sets the highest standard for tactical/utility cutlery. Since the inception of the original Socom in 1996, it has been the pioneer of the entire Microtech folding knife line. Over the years, numerous improvements have been made making the Socom more adaptable to different environments. Both the manual and the auto Socoms have a unique handle shape that molds to your hand. You know you are buying the best tool on the market no matter which one-of-a-kind blade you choose: the clip point or the tanto (this model). An integrated glass breaker in the base of the handle and a large stud that allows easy opening with a glove adds to its impressive stature. The Socom's rugged reliability makes it the first choice for the special operations community.

Happy, happy - joy, joy!
Just arrived today but I’m seriously impressed. There’s lots of YouTube video about this model & it’s nearly all good. It’s not hype! Deploys easily & smoothly. Grind lines are beautifully done & symmetrical. Quite thin behind the edge along the main length of it and thicker along the tanto point but that’s expected for strength and it is even along the length of it. Excellent sharpness for a factory edge too. Everything about the knife design is purposeful and well executed. And that includes the pocket clip which some might consider ‘upside-down’ but it’s not really. If it were on the tail-end there would be a narrow portion of the handle to grasp and since the handle width tapers front-to-rear it would also be unfavorable to get ahold of firmly. The clip goes in & out of the pocket easily and stays firmly in place - very similar to a CRK Sebenza clip with its extra ‘step’. Well done. The knife is light for the size of it so it’s easy to carry. It’s exceptionally comfortable in-hand for all the ways I would use it and it’s very secure to hold. Can’t say enough good things about this knife. Watch the YouTube videos and don’t doubt the endless praise that’s been heaped upon this knife. It is well deserved. Ignore the “upside-down” clip if that stumbles you. You’ll get used to it because the knife really is THAT good.
