still loving this knife. its bar FAR the easiest to manipulate of any knife i have ever handled. barely any motion/pressure on the thumb stud and it swings out on ceramic bearings. lock takes very light pressure to disengage, blade wings shut like skates on ice. Due to smooth aluminum and CF its very smooth in and out of the pocket.
I wouldn't say its an ideal EDC knife, but its a real dream to handle and carry
Any worries about droppage/breakage issues? Ceramic tends to be brittle.
you know, that did occur to me, but i haven't heard of it happening, and I've done a decent amount of research on microtech knives
i will likley baby this knife. carry it a lot and use it but not thump on it.
when i hold this knife it honesty feels like a weapon to me more than a tool....not that i have any desire to use it like a weapon.
over all it feels very solid and tight though
The Socom Elites mean business thats for sure, really nice knife just was not up my alley. The knife weighs next to nothing for a huge 4" blade and it was really smooth deploying with a bank vault closing sound on lockup. I am drawn to mircotechs because they look so cool but they can be a hard sell. Gave my uncle my blackout ultratech as a christmass present.
