This Ultratech features a double-edged dagger blade with a black finish and plain cutting edges. It has a contoured, tan anodized 6061-T6 aluminum handle with a black finished pocket clip, glass breaker, and stainless steel hardware.
Microtech equipped this version of the ever popular Ultratech D/A OTF knife with a smooth, contoured handle design that promotes increased comfort during use. This updated model provides the same dimensions, hardware, and durability offered by the "Tri-Grip" variation, but goes easier on the hands and pockets.
For those unfamiliar with the Ultratech, it's a fully automatic knife with a double-action out-the-front mechanism, meaning the thumb slide deploys the blade and retracts it as well. The Ultratech knife from Microtech has set the bar for all OTF knives.

The action is extremely stiff. I tried to work the action twice a day. My thumb got a big work out. I lubed it with BenchMade Blue lube. Let it rest over night. The next day I worked the action and the blade came off “track.” How can you pay this much money only to have it fail. My cheap Lightning will work ever time and have no problems. I pulled on the blade to get it to “seat.” After a couple of tries it started to function correctly again. I can’t return it because I had it engraved. I’m deciding what to do. Think before you spend. Paying for the best is sometimes not worth it. Jeff Choy
