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. 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.
