The Microtech Socom Delta S/E is a clip point version of the very popular Socom Delta TE. Named after the elite counter-terrorism force, the Delta was named American Made Knife of the Year at the 2012 Blade Show. The Single Edge (SE) Clip Point blade gives the Socom Delta plenty of cutting surface area and this version comes with a black coated blade. The heart of any knife is the blade and on the Delta, Microtech has chosen Bohler Elmax steel for both it's edge retention and rust resistance.
Well built with strong heat treated 17-4 PH® stainless steel for the lock bar and backspacer. A removable steel insert bolts to the lock bar to hold the blade securely in place. Quick deployments are executed by the revolutionary ceramic bearing system that is specified for use on Microtech's folding knife line. Dual thumb studs also serve as blade stops and engage steel stops milled into the G10 scales. G10 was chosen and 3D milled to create the frames that have strength and isn't cold to the touch like metal would be. Strategic placing of jimping around the thumb rest and on the lower side offer great traction and comfort. Includes right handed carry tip up stainless steel pocket clip and a lanyard loop on the back spacer. Brand new direct from Microtech.
Elmax is a high chromium, vanadium, and molybdenum alloyed steel that offers a high wear resistance, high compressive strength, corrosion resistant and very good dimensional stability. Through a proprietary process of powder metallurgy both high wear resistance and corrosion resistance has been achieved.
