Microtech Combat Troodon vs. Benchmade Infidel OTF Automatic

Microtech Combat Troodon

The Microtech Combat Troodon OTF (out the front) is named after the Troodon dinosaur and is the larger version of the Troodon OTF knife which debuted in 2006. The Combat Troodon is one of Microtech's largest OTF double action production knives available with an overall length of 9.5 inches. The Combat Troodon features a 3.8" stainless steel double edge dagger style blade with stonewash finish. The 5.75" handle is black anodized aluminum and features a bead blast finish hardware, glass breaker and pocket clip. Yes this is a larger OTF knife but it feels great in the hand thanks to the jimping in the handle.

Built for a variety of utility and close quarter combat situations, the Combat Troodon is a favorite among law enforcement, military and first responder personnel. The substantial feel makes it suitable for hard-use, while the benefits of an automatic OTF make it a great choice for everyday carry.
