The Microtech® folding lineup sets the standard for tactical and utility cutlery. Remaining a highly popular folding knife since its inception in 1996, the updated SOCOM Elite® brings an adaptable and unique model to the table. Our automatic version is available in this lineup. As pioneer of the Microtech® folding knife line, the UDT was created in 1995 and has evolved to be an exceptional combination of form and function. These models were later consolidated to a single size, featuring a grooved, contoured aluminum handle with jimping along the top of the handle that carries onto the spine of the blade. The LUDT® boasts an explosive deployment mechanism not commonly found in a knife of this size.
