    Out of my mind, brb never.
    http://playground.sun.com/~vasya/Microtech-MiniSOCOM-Elite-09.jpgWell this last summer my family went to a friends 5 acre compound in Costa Rica for a month. My brother was going into town on the dirtbike (Puerto Jimenez on the Osa) and asked to borrow my Microtech Vector Auto. Well upon returning he couldnt find it. :mad: Asshole didnt use the belt clip and just stuffed it into his pocket.
    SO, im looking at a few different knives for a replacement. I would go with another vector auto if it wasnt $200+ no and nearly impossible to find. So far the Kershaw Tacticle Blur and the Microtech Socom Elite Tanto.

    PICS:

    This is true. I loved my auto too much to go with a straight manual.

    He will, I am making him pay for it.

    So no preferences either way? Right now I am leaning towards the Kershaw with the speed safe assisted opening, for both the price and ergonomics.

    I have the blur and like it alot (I have carried Kershaws for a long time)

    Best Bang for the buck IMO.. and you cry less if you lose/drop/break it...

    MT's blow the Kershaw's out of the water. Just depends on how much you want to spend. Kershaws are still good knives for the money. I love my Microtechs, but usually carry cheaper knives in case I lose one I won't cry like a bitch.
