This Ultratech features a tanto blade with an Apocalyptic finish and a plain cutting edge. It has a contoured, black anodized 6061-T6 aluminum handle with a bead blast 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.
After a week of active use the thumb slide stiffness gets much weaker. Now it's pretty comfortable to open and close. Overall the knife seems to be well built and razor sharp out of the box. Just want to mention that I got the M390 blade instead of Elmax which is mentioned in description though I don't mind that at all. Those are both premium quality steels.
