The UTX-70 Spartan is outfitted with a fascinating double-edge gladius tip tanto blade. This model has a black finished blade with plain edges and it's paired up with a black 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.
