1st off, they make awesome blades

To me, I don’t spent microtech money on a toy

Too many outdated laws of spring opening knives.

Knife laws are a patchwork in many places

If you used a switch blade in self defense, how would the civil trial go for you???

Jack bower of 24-microtech the preferred brand of professional assassins


I live out west where you could have a regular pocket knife, get stopped while driving and get arrested as the knife is not legal to carry in that city.


A few years ago we had finished shooting a bunch of class 3 outside of Vegas.

We stopped to grab lunch and I ended up using my pocket knife on my sandwich at lunch in a restaurant. Just a folder.

I was warned to hide it. Car load of class 3- lefal
My pistol - lefal with my NV CHL
My 3 1/2” knife- cops will arrest you for having that.


So buy the blade- they are awesome. It’s just a lot of $$$ for a knife I can’t carry outside of my home

I bought one but quickly returned it. It’s so small it’s more of a novelty in my opinion. My favorite size is the UTX85, it’s my EDC knife.

Sharps- I tend to use my daily carry knife a lot.
Loose threads on a shirt- no worries
Breaking down boxes- no worries
Cut off a zip tie- done

How do you use the UTX85?

That’s about how I use mine, general everyday stuff. I redid the handle of mine in Cerakote (battleworn titanium) so it hides any scratches from my keys or anything else.

Also EDC a UTX85 unless in the field or hard use/dirty environments. Tried the UTX70 (too small) and Ultratech (too big) and then found the 85 (just right).

I like MT OTFs, IMO the 70 is too small, almost laughably so. Keychain knife at best. The Scarab is the perfect size MT OTF.

So i ordered the 85 and im a bit hesitant. I hate big knives especially for edc. Does anyone have a pic next to an everyday object to compare size wise. Ive looked on google images i just cant find a good one.

My ultratech is my new edc knife. I wish I would of bought one years ago. I have medium size hands and it’s perfect. Ive wanted to buy a utx-85 but I can’t give up my ultratech
