This version features a plain edge Tanto point blade in satin finished American CTS-204P steel, Purple Anodized aircraft grade aluminum handles with traction inserts and gray hardware.

Brand new item direct from Microtech Knives, USA.

Blade: The Socom Elite sports a beefy 4-inch blade of Carpenter's high performance 204P steel with a subdued two-tone finish: vertical satin on the grinds and horizontal satin on the flats. The high height saber grind offers an excellent combination of durability and slicing performance while the Tanto point offers the ultimate in piercing capability while retaining a high level of toughness. The blade opens lightning quick via the large, high traction button actuator.

Handle: Constructed of durable aluminum handles that are both lightweight and tough, finished in a purple hard anodization for a striking look. Black traction inserts deliver security in the hand along with a jimped thumb ramp and jimping along both the top and bottom of the tapered pommel end. The same button that deploys the blade also disengages the rock solid plunge lock that delivers security in use. This Socom Elite is completed with gray Torx Hardware, right hand tip-down pocket clip and hardened steel glass breaker insert.

Each Socom Elite is individually serialized and dated on the front of the blade. 

CTS-204P: A highly wear resistant, powder metallurgy stainless tool steel, the steel contains a large volume of extremely hard vanadium carbides which provide excellent wear resistance. CTS-204P has some of the highest chromium content of a high-vanadium stainless steel currently available. The chromium-rich matrix provides outstanding corrosion resistance. Analogs to CTS-204P include CPM-20CV and Bohler M390.
