Description

Description

Microtech has updated their venerable Ultratech knife with a new and improved handle design. While the dimensions and action remain the same as the previous model, this latest version features the effective, visually stimulating "tri-grip" texture. Further enhancements include beveled edges, a modified thumb slide, tri-angle hardware, and an everyday-friendly glass breaker tip. The end result is an impressive Ultratech that improves upon what has become the must-have OTF automatic.

This Ultratech has a stunning red finished dagger style blade with a plain double-edged design. It has a black 6061-T6 aluminum handle with a black finished pocket clip, glass breaker and stainless steel hardware.

For those unfamiliar with the Ultratech, it's a fully automatic knife with a double-action out-the-front mechanism, meaning the thumb slide deploys the blade and retracts it as well. The Ultratech knife from Microtech has set the bar for all OTF knives.

Incredible knife; one downside

This knife was exactly what I imagined it would be.

It came sharp as a laser straight out of the box, the action works beautifully every time (although you really should add a drop of oil from time to time), and most surprisingly of all to me, the red coating does not seem to wear off due to use.

The one downside to getting a Microtech is that you cannot sharpen it yourself, or have it sharpened anywhere but a Microtech approved armorer unless you don't care for the warranty. Then again, trying to sharpen the ultra-hard Elmax is like trying to sharpen a diamond with a piece of gravel.

All in all, I am extremely impressed with the knife. I carry it every day and it has come in handy as a one handed pull and draw several times when I've been at work (and when fighting filthy rebels).
Beautiful and solid but...

This knife could be better. I still give it 5 stars though because of it's incredible action, light weight, looks, and excellent ergonomics on the grip.

The one problem it has is prevalent among knife manufacturers which really is surprising. The thumb slide should not be symmetric on the top front and back sides where the thumb is placed to open and close. The action of the thumb pushing is quite different than that of the thumb pulling and the slopes on the front and back of the slide should be optimized for each action. I'm fairly strong but with sweaty hands it's very hard to retract the blade of this Ultratech.

Having said that I do want to give accolades to the one manufacturer that gets this and has created a perfect thumb slide. It's H&K and the model is the turmoil. Perfect perfect thumb slide. I hope others learn from them.
