Microtech ADO (Alpha Detachment Operative) Knife
The A.D.O. (Alpha Detachment Operative) is an extraordinary fixed blade knife from Microtech. It is exceptionally ergonomic, light weight and well balanced. The best feature of the ADO is the "feel" which can't be explained or photographed! There's no other fixed blade that feels even similar to the ADO. You have to handle one to understand.
The entire knife is CNC machined from a single billet of 440A stainless steel. This ensures unparalleled lateral strength. The handle is hollow and features a hidden compartment to store away your survival essentials. This compartment is O ring sealed and is totally water proof. In addition, the screw cap features a handy glass breaker tip. The 440A stainless steel is well known for its corrosion resistance qualities. Also being a softer steel, it doesn't chip or break easily and can withstand some serious abuse in the field. In addition, 440A is very easy to sharpen, making ADO a great all round fix blade.
The composite sheath is very versatile and light weight. the spring clip can be removed and rotated 90 degree for vertical or horizontal carry. The knife fits in nice and tight with no play whatsoever. The spring loaded retention clip ensure the knife does not come out of the sheath unless you want it to.
Important Sheath Functions
