Description

Description

This UTX-70 has a black finished dagger blade paired with a turquoise anodized 6061-T6 aluminum chassis.

If you're looking for an extremely compact, concealable OTF knife, the UTX-70 is a perfect match. At 70% of the size of Microtech's classic Ultratech model, the UTX-70 knife has the legendary design and double-action performance of its bigger sibling while providing unrivaled everyday carry comfort.

Deploying the blade on the UTX-70 as with any Microtech D/A automatic knife is accomplished by sliding the firing button forward. It requires a firm push, which eliminates the possibility of unintentional firing. To close the blade, simply pull the firing button back. Action is predictably swift and precise, a distinct characteristic of Microtech knives.

Aesthetics:
The thing is damn cool looking! A few colors and blade shapes/finishes to choose from, and there you have it.

Size, weight, ease of carry:
Despite all the things I would love to say, there's very little that needs to be said. It weighs just barely over an ounce and provides a 2.41" blade. It doesn't get much easier to carry a knife.

Materials, durability:
An Elmax blade is housed in a 6061-T6 aluminum body, and all the important inner workings are steel. Tried and true components, and they all come together beautifully.
It's worth noting (I guess) that it is held together and secured by Microtech's proprietary 3-dot screws.

Speed/lockup:
Phenomenal speed, both in and out. Lockup has some slop, due to the nature of deployment. Unless your model has an unusual amount of play, it's nothing to worry about.

Price/competitive options:
Let's be perfectly honest about price.
It's expensive.
There are a lot of blades you can get your hands on for the $240 you'll forfeit for this piece, but few will make such great use of 1.2 ounces.
(However, some offerings from Piranha or Benchmade may catch your eye.)

Bottom line: Excels at being an EDC knife, and will serve well as an exceptionally lightweight, tactical backup.
This is all predicated on your willingness to drop this kind of cash.
