The Microtech 142-3OD Combat Troodon out the front automatic knife is a really large version of the popular Troodon model, and is Microtech’s largest double action out-the-front (OTF). It is named after the Troodon dinosaur. 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. This Combat Troodon features a Carpenter CTS-204P steel double edge dagger blade with the bottom edge having a plain edge (no serrations), and the top edge being fully serrated. This Combat Troodon model features a OD Green anodized 6061-T6 aluminum handle, black finish pocket clip, glass breaker, and hardware. Note: Pictures show a M390 steel blade. Current models have Carpenter CTS-204P steel blades.
