Description

Microtech has updated and refined the UTX-85 model. It features improved ergonomics, with rounded handle faces, and patches of grooves along the sides to ensure excellent grip. The firing button has been redesigned to increase surface contact for effective engagement, and the glass breaker has a ball-tip set in the trip-angle pattern base to increase its everyday carry manners.

This model has a satin finished steel blade. The 6061-T6 aluminum handle is black anodized and outfitted with bead blast finished hardware, pocket clip, and glass breaker tip.

Based on the Ultratech platform, the UTX-85 is scaled down to 85% of its length. The UTX-85 is an appealing option for those who prefer a smaller EDC knife and value Microtech's high-performance out-the-front action and exceptional build quality.

I bought a UTX-85, an Ultratech and a Dirac. I have had to send the UTX-85 and the Dirac back to Microtech for repair. The Dirac opened one time making a funny noise and would no longer close. The UTX-85 quickly became very difficult to open and then wouldn't extend the blade all the way. The warranty service was good. These knives were not abused and in fact, hardly used at all. I may have gotten a few lemons but that's a lot of money for lemons. Quality Control problems? I don't mind paying more for quality and reliability. Not too impressed.
Amazing EDC

I have a thing for good EDC knives and a personal requirement of non-coated simple profile blade, ~3 oz weight, solid hand feel, ambidextrous design, and ability to left pocket carry. This is a very nicely designed and well build OTF that fits all my EDC requirements.
Great EDC

Got mine in April 2019. 204P steel. Was wanting a different color but Black is timeless and these sell out quick so I grabbed it. Can definitely tell the difference between this and the more budget friendly OTFs. It is super slim in the pocket so itís nice if you carry a big phone in your front pocket also. As I write this, I am waiting for my UTX-70 to be delivered as well so word of warning, these can be habit forming.
Great Automatic!

I love this OTF! I purchased this knife recently, as they only became legal in Michigan a few months ago (November 2017). Since then, I have carried it every day. I love this knife!

The single hand operation makes using this knife so simple and easy. With automatic retraction, the knife is honestly safer as well.

I know the description says the blade steel is Elmax, but the knife I received is M390. I guess Microtech quietly upgraded their lineup. I can say without a doubt, this is the sharpest blade I have ever owned. Make your wishlists for when these come back in stock!

Highly highly satisfied, and highly recommended!
Awesome!

Great knife for the price. Contour and size of the handle makes this knife a breeze to carry. It's easier to open than an ultratech but fires just as hard. It was a great knife...until I lost it in a bar fight but it saved my life so I'll definitely be buying another. Highly recommend this knife!
