Description
MT1221: 122-1 Ultratech
Microtech
 
The Ultratech, will forever set the standard for all out-the-front knives. Ultratech is Microtech’s original dual action out-the-front knife, and has been the foundation of their entire OTF line. Over the years, it has gone through several modifications, each time becoming more efficient and reliable. This version has the improved tri-grip texturing on the handle and thumb slide for more positive purchase. The Ultratech's spring remains in an "at rest" position at all times except when deployed. This ensures that the compressed spring will not become fatigued, assuring users that when the knife is fired, it will operate effectively. Ultratech can take many different forms; it can be topped with a standard machined aluminum top or a piece of carbon fiber. The Ultratech's light weight, one handed open and close action, slim shape, and scalpel sharp blade make it a one of a kind knife, only available through Microtech. This knife has proven time and again that it can withstand any obstacle. Only time will tell what the next step will be for the Ultratech series.

disappointing, had potential
Firstly, i did not buy this knife through knifecenter. It was purchased from the hollow grind, and the fellow there (dave i think?) Was a great guy to deal with, offering me support he really didnt have to, nothing but positive things to say about that. However, the knife itself has been a huge headache. Arrived with one black screw. Really surprising and annoying, but i rubbed the black finish off the head and you really couldnt tell so i was fine with that. Screws began to loosen immediately, and within a few days, one fell out, and since i was in the woods it was hopelessly lost. Dealer sent me a replacement screw no problem. Within a week, the spring broke at the little hook that mates it to carrier slide. Repair required a special bit to disassemble. The need for constant tightening of the screws, even after the application of blue loctite, and repeated disassembly to fix the spring which broke three more times, caused every screw to eventually strip the very fine threads of the t6 aluminum they screwed into to secure the faceplate. After that, with not much else to lose i coated some black sewing thread around the handle where i could without impeding the trigger slide. Actually worked fine. Lasted that way for about a year, then the glass breaker screw that held on the pocket clip stripped. Two weeks later and the spring broke again. I really liked the design and materials used for this knife, especially the s35vn blade which i favor over any other steel i have yet to try, and the tight tolerances it is made to but it has broken in almost every way it can from the very start despite me babying it. I wanted a microtech for years and years and to have this experience at this price point is truly ridiculous. Hopefully mine was a "lemon" but i felt i should make other potential buyers aware. My ultratech was also ridiculously stiff to fire and even harder to to retract. Very frustrating, especially considering the lightning otf i paid 20 bucks for for my coworker last christmas has seen nothing but abuse (we work construction and its nice to have an otf when youre at the top of an extension ladder with a nail gun in your other hand) and is none the worse for wear except for paint chips on the handle. The machining isnt anywhere near as nice and precise, and there is a good bit more play in the blade but at least it works.

Cons: None
I have always wanted a microtech OTF so I saved up and got one... I am glad I did .even though it is not something I would carry on a daily basis I have carried it fairly often. The only problem I have had is the skull crusher is so incrediblely sharp that it hurts my hand and digs into my side when carried in my pocket. Mine did not come with a sheath like the ones I have seen on line over the years but that isn't a big deal for me. Man what a gorgeous knife... Well done Microtech
