Through the years, Microtech® Knives has infused passion and skill into making works of art that are an apex of functionality and form. We continue to push boundaries and improve on what we already know works. In 2020 Microtech® Knives has grown into a leading cutlery brand, always evolving and moving forward using the latest technology, ancient blade principles, and maximum field testing to ensure we never compromise.
The UTX-85 (15% smaller than an Ultratech or 85% the size of one) dual action out the front automatic knife from Microtech makes an even friendlier every day carry option. This Tactical version has a black contoured handle and a plain edge, black coated Elmax Tanto blade with matching black hardware.
Brand new directly from Microtech Knives, USA.
Blade: The Tanto blade has a single, razor sharp plain edge with a durable matte black Cerakote finished grinds and satin flats that is discreetly non-reflective and corrosion resistant. Made from high performance Bohler Elmax stainless steel the blade offers the premium edge retention and corrosion resistance. The 3.125 inch blade features a double action opening and retracting mechanism. Simply move the thumb slide on the side of the handle up to deploy and down to retract. An internal spring remains at rest in both the open and closed position to reduce wear. The action is smooth and fast.
Handle: Smooth, Black anodized 6061-T6 aluminum has improved rounded edges creating not only a comfortable feel in-hand but a smooth transition in and out of your pocket. There are several areas of machine-grooved texturing around the outsides aiding in grip. This lighter more ergonomic grip is easy on the hands and eyes. The handle’s construction is completed with Microtech’s proprietary black tactical hardware, glass breaker end and pocket clip with individual serial number/date of production all in a matching black finish.
Bohler Elmax: Elmax has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. Elmax also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid corrosion (rust) by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Elmax has very similar performance to M390 and is used interchangeably by Microtech.
