Microtech-socom-elite-cpm-s90v-knife-video-review


One of the best Microtech model - Socom Elite, with machined aluminum handle, bar lock, carbide glass breaker (lost already), and CPM S90V TiN coated blade. I using this knife for only special tasks which require extreme sharpness and low angle tip - semi surgical things, like cutting off splinters without drawing blood.

But to fair I tried it out against rough tasks - like cutting roots and digging, cutting notebooks in half, drywall - etc...But just to try, it has unique tip to do delicate jobs. It does not show extreme performance on manila rope tests, better then average but behind CTS-XHP, ZDP-189 etc. However I consider it as good performer, because of excellent design, flowless fit and finish and precise mechanics.
