Perfect EDC work horse
Chad D. on Feb 17, 2020

I personally have several microtech knives, and love them all. The few times I have needed service on a knife, they have it repaired and back to me in less than a week. Out of all my knives, my UTX 70s get the most use. Pretty much all day every day this litte knife does great. This new design is awesome, with a better contour handle for grip, and its some how a lighter weight. I would reccommend this little guy to anyone looking to try microtech for the first time, as this is small enough to not be seen as aggresive for work use, and it is still absolutely rock solid and wont let you down.

Little star

The knife is tiny, at first I was a little shocked on how small it actually was..I thought it was too small. Then I carried it for awhile and realized how great it actually was! Yes it’s small but that’s kind of the beauty of it! I’ll probably get the next size up too.

Great lightweight EDC!
Hudnell C. on Mar 4, 2019

All the snappy goodness of a Microtech OTF in a tiny, lightweight package. The quality is right on point with my UTX-85. It disappears in your pocket and came absolutely razor sharp. Grab one while you can!

Amazing, but pricey
AJ C. on Feb 9, 2020

This is a perfect little EDC. Great for disappearing in your pocket or carrying on the waistband of a pair of shorts. Fires very strong, and good quality all around. Nice thin blade, although I wish the grind was a tad thinner. I also like that it is made in the USA. Super great fidget factor. It also just looks great. Why 4 stars? $240 (by time you pay for taxes and shipping) is terribly expensive for what you get IMO, and there are countless other folders where you would get better value for your money in the ~$200 price range. That said, I'm certainly not returning mine. If you compare it to other $200+ folders you may be disappointed, but it's pretty amazing nonetheless. I kinda wish there was a UTX 77.5. That would be perfect. If you're on the fence about one of these, try picking up a Firecracker OTF first to see if you like the size/feel of an OTF. Just don't buy a knockoff please.
