    Not a review...just a few pics and thoughts.

    I had a SOCOM Delta a few years ago that just blew me away with the design and execution- but it had a couple problems that required two trips back to Microtech that ended up taking many months and killing the knife for me.

    I always remained curious about the Elite and the most recent release got my interest. While I'm not into serrated blades, it was all I could find.


    This thing is buttery..buttery...buttery smooth and oozes quality.

    It's also built like a brick s***house...that is a Emerson 10 next to it. The SOCOM has the most massive liner lock I've ever seen and the the blade thickness makes the 10 look almost anemic!



    Sucker cuts pretty darn well too. I'm not used to serrations and they hang me up sometime, but it breezed through this cardboard like a champ and the M390 is holding a very nice edge.


    I'm still going to keep my eyes open for a plain edged version. I always wondered if the glass-breaker tip would bother me, but I have yet to notice it when I carry it.

    So far it's off to a good start...
