Very snappy deployment
Frank N.
Very snappy deployment. Minimal blade play. Comfortable in the hand. A great knife.
Not for me
I am a big fan of Microtech knives as I have bought quite a few from Blade HQ over the years. This one was a big disappointment.
The button on this knife is the worst, it is small and sharp on the edges and actually cut into my thumb after a few uses. Did not like the thin profile of this knife either,overall the knife seemed kind of cheaply made to me compared to all my other Microtechs.
Blade HQ is the best place to buy from as they accept returns with no hassle. Thanks guys.
I love the Cypher

I just purchased this Microtech Cypher knife and absolutely love it!! This is my favorite double action OTF to date that Microtech makes. I love the very smooth, fast action that this knife has with a very tight lock up. There is little to no play in the blade when it is extended. I also like the all black (tactical) look. Seth, thank you for being such a super sales person to work with over the phone when ordering this. Seth was very professional, knowledgable, and helpful to me throughout the entire transaction and needless to say the transaction was very smooth from ordering the knife to receiving it the next day. Seth, thank you for all your help and also thank you for physically checking this knife prior to it being shipped. I have done business with BladeHQ for several years now and once again I'm a very happy customer with this most recent purchase. I highly recommend BladeHQ to anyone who is in the market for a high quality knife and also highly recommend the Microtech brand.
