Description
MT1544: 154-4 DOC Killswitch
Microtech
 
The DOC (Death on Contact) is an impressive collaboration between Mick Strider of Strider Knives and Anthony Marfione of Microtech. Initially produced as a custom knife for the NYCKS, the DOC has finally made its way into mainstream production. Also available as a manual flipper, the DOC Killswitch is the AUTO folder the DOC took home 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.

Extremely fine grained powered metal that strikes the balance between edge holding and corrosion resistance perfectly. Much more likely to get a rolled edge than have a chip develop.

A clear rip off
The MT DOC Killswitch auto is yet another major disappointment from MT. At this price point you can get a Sebenza, or a Strider, both totally superior to the DOC KS auto, in fact Benchmades 2750 Adamas auto at half of the DOC KS price point is totally superior to it. The DOC I received had side to side blade play, a sharpening blemish along the blade(obvious discoloration in from the edge up 1.5-2 mm into the stonewashed blade)and an off center blade. $350.00? Not a chance, I have $50.00 Cold Steel Folders that exhibit zero blade play, my Adamas auto from Benchmade locks up so tight that there is no side to side blade play, and a perfectly centered blade which feels substantially better in hand, you can just feel the difference in quality between them, and that quality edge leans heavily toward Benchmade! IMO the DOC KS is inferior to knives you can purchase for under a hundred bucks!
