The Microtech Halo V might just be the coolest Out the Front Auto on the market right now. At the very least, it’s the fastest opening knife in our building, hands down. The Halo V knives are large, powerful, visually appealing, and come complete with a Kydex belt sheath. The blade is a whopping 4.6″ of premium steel with a variety of shapes and configurations. The blade fires hard and fast, while still being safe and very unlikely to actuate inadvertently – requires a good amount of sharp force on the button to fire. All around these are awesome tactical knives and you can find them at www.knifecenter.com
The DOC (Death on Contact) is one awesome AUTO folder. This collaboration between Mick Strider of Strider Knives and Anthony Marfione of Microtech, won Most Innovative Design and Collaboration of the Year at the 2013 BLADE Show. It’s large, tactical, rugged, fast, ergonomic and fun. The safety switch doubles as the push button for this folder and the grind lines on the blade are absolutely gorgeous. A great quality folding design you definitely can bet your life on. See it at www.knifecenter.com.

Microtech 129-7 Select Fire Manual Folding Knife
The brilliant Microtech SF manual openers. These are the winner of the Blade magazine’s Most Innovative American Design for 2011. These, top-of-the-line folding knives are incredibly well engineered and produced by one of America’s foremost arms manufacturers and the quality shows all the way through. The grip is configured to give a really tight and secure hold in regular or reverse grip mode. In fact, the handle allows for a variety of grips including a close in, choked up grip utilizing the jimping on the top of the blade and the finger groove at its base. Handle material is aluminum with carbon fiber inserts. The blade is wide and cuts quickly and powerfully with a saber / flat ground S-35-VN stainless steel. The opening pin is large with a unique design. The backspacer on the handle is anodized with one of several colors. The pocket clip is large and very utilitarian configured for tip-up carry. As usual with Microtech products, the “walk” and “talk” of this knife is incredible. The sounds of both opening and closing feel like you are engaged with a super-engineered, custom made hand tool.
