Socom Alpha S/E Signature Carbon Fiber, DLC the iconic Anthony Marfione design, now in a fixed blade version. The SOCOM folder was one of Microtech's first designs, which quickly became widely recognized. Soldiers and special groups operators repeatedly requested a fixed blade version. And so Socom Alpha was born, a large, sturdy tactical knife made with attention to the finest details and from the best materials. A faithful companion that will never disappoint!
Socom Alpha Line - styled after the original Socom folder, is a full-tang fixed blade knife with an elite perfectly balanced blade and a full-handle and milled scales for maximum grip. Comes with a kydex scabbard with Tek-Lok attachment. The Socom Alpha® is an impressive and unparalleled tactical knife.
Signature Series - an elite line of Microtech products designed for buyers who are looking for a more exclusive touch to the beloved Core Series production models (logo with claws on the knife). The highest quality materials and finishes are often used in the production of Signature Series knives. The line also includes themed knives such as Bounty Hunter, Memento Mori and Molon Labe. A distinctive feature is the marking with the dagger logo on the Handle and Anthony Marfione's signature on the clip.
M390 Microclean® - a martensitic high-performance chrome steel produced by powder metallurgy. Due to its alloy concept, it has extremely high wear resistance and high corrosion resistance. Due to its high wear resistance, it adequately maintains the shape of the edge, so the blade stays sharp for a very long time (requiring minimal maintenance). Another of the advantages is resistance to the formation of "wire" during sharpening. The steel has a high chromium content of 20.0% (Cr) doped with 1.9% carbon (C), vanadium 4.0% (V), and is hardened between 59-61 HRC. This super steel is comparable to Carpenter's CPM 20CV or CTS-204P steels. Manufactured by Böhler Edelstahl in Kapfenberg, Austria.
DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) durability of the blade's surface is enhanced with a matte black nanocomposite coating, which exhibits unique properties such as exceptional hardness and low friction, as well as excellent corrosion protection. It is one of the most resistant coatings to scratches and abrasion that are used in the industry, including the knife industry.
typu S/E (Single Edge Clip Point) blade coated with black DLC coating. Despite its thickness, the concave grind provides excellent cutting properties combined with excellent durability. The wedge bears Anthony Marfione's signature, as well as the serial number and date of manufacture. On the back of the blade a finger notch.
Handle - profiled with finger notches. Carbon Fiber grips attached directly to the blank with proprietary Microtech screws. This is the simplest and most secure design that ensures the practical indestructibility of the knife. The advantage of carbon fiber is the lightness of the material combined with almost complete insensitivity to weather conditions. The bottom of the Handle is covered along its entire length with notches (jimping) which reinforces grip security and control of the knife while working. The protruding section of the tang can be used as a glass breaker, and also includes a lanyard hole, a hole for a belaying or decorative line.
Sheath - made of carbon fiber laminated kydex, provides a secure hold on the knife in any position. TEK-LOK-type attachment to the belt or to the armor allows the knife to be carried vertically or horizontally.
