The Microtech D.O.C (death on contact) flipper knife is a collaboration between Microtech and Strider that won "Collaboration of the Year" at the 2013 Blade Show. The DOC flipper is a large tactical folder that has garnered a lot of attention over the last year. However, the buzz has been about the much anticipated Killswitch, the automatic version of the Death on Contact D.O.C..

Automatic knives have made a resurgence in recent years and with many states relaxing their auto knife laws, Microtech has put into production a knife that won them a second award at the 2013 Blade Show, the automatic version of the DOC called the Killswitch (seen below).

The Microtech DOC Killswitch was this year's 2013 Blade Show award winner for "Most Innovative American Design. The KillSwitch is of course a collaboration between master knife designers Mick Strider (Strider Knives) and Anthony Marfione, owner of Microtech Knives.

To operate the Killswitch and deploy the blade, it must be flipped forward revealing a white dot which indicates the blade can be fired. By pressing the "Killswitch" the blade deploys rapidly. To close, press the killswitch and fold the blade back to the closed position.
