The DOC was everything I expected in an overbuilt, manual, tactical flipper! The Strider influence is immediately visible in this SMF-sized beauty but with a very Microtech distinct blade grind. You won't find a more unusual blade grind on a large EDC such as this.... especially not in this price range! Plus you get Elmax steel, a well designed pocket clip that works great on any pocket material. And as if that is all not enough.....the frame lock has a steel instert where it makes contact with the base of the blade when fully engaged so you never have to worry about lock-stick. All these excellent features and the blade came shaving sharp, with early lockup and perfect centering! I enjoy this knife so much I now own two, so purchase with confidence because you are getting more than your money's worth on this battle ready tactical folder!!!
