Almost 20 years after its first release, the Makora returns! This classic Microtech OTF knife has been revived with an updated design and improved technology. While it appears very similar to the Microtech Ultratech, it boasts some subtle—and some serious—differences. It's slightly thicker, slightly lighter, and has a peaked handle and an updated glass breaker. Both sides of the handle are inset with Microtech's famous M3 composite grip-enhancing material, and the top and bottom of the handle have holes that work with the fluting at the base of the blade to make it more operational under water. The knife's action is enhanced by nickel boron internals that have reduced friction, improving consistency. This new Makora shows how far Microtech has come and proves their commitment to their roots.

Awesome design and great feel in the hand. Actuation is very snappy. One problem is that it came fairly dull. Couldn’t cut paper.
I received my Makora in a less-than-desirable shape. The bevels on both sides of the blade are way out of whack. The knife is so dull it won’t even slice a sheet of paper. Highly disappointed for the first time by Microtech! No way to exchange it, so I have to process a return and hope there’s still one to buy. I ended up processing a return through Blade HQ which was handled quickly and without issue. Again, the problem lies with Microtech, Blade HQ as the dealer took care of the problem and I hope they get a resolution from Microtech. Thanks again Blade HQ for your service.
