The Microtech Socom Delta S/E is a Single Edge (SE) Clip Point blade with high performance steel and G10 handle material. The blade is made from Bohler Elmax®, chosen for it's combination of edge retention and rust resistance. The blade has an attractive satin finish with a flat gound edge. For quick deployments there are dual thumb studs and a revolutionary ceramic bearing system. Thumb studs also serve a secondary purpose as blade stops that rest on steel inserts just under the G10.
The handle sports contoured black 3D textured G10 with traction grooves on the thumb rest and towards the rear of the handle. This all adds up to a solid grip in any environment. The handle frame assembly is fitted with heat treated 17-4 PH® stainless steel lock bar and solid titanium back strap. The blade is held solidly in the open position by a removable steel insert bolted to the lock bar. Includes a tip-up carry pocket clip and lanyard loop designed into the back spacer. Brand new direct from Microtech Knives.
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.
