MT1291: 129-1 Select Fire Manual Action, Black Plain Blade
Microtech Knives
The brilliant Microtech SF manual openers. These are the winner of the Blade magazine's Most Innovative American Design for 2011. These, top-of-the-line folding knives are incredibly well engineered and produced by one of America's foremost arms manufacturers and the quality shows all the way through. The grip is configured to give a really tight and secure hold in regular or reverse grip mode. In fact, the handle allows for a variety of grips including a close in, choked up grip utilizing the jimping on the top of the blade and the finger groove at its base. Handle material is aluminum with carbon fiber inserts. The blade is wide and cuts quickly and powerfully with a saber / flat ground S-35-VN stainless steel. The opening pin is large with a unique design. The backspacer on the handle is anodized with one of several colors. The pocket clip is large and very utilitarian configured for tip-up carry. As usual with Microtech products, the "walk" and "talk" of this knife is incredible. The sounds of both opening and closing feel like you are engaged with a super-engineered, custom made hand tool.

Cons: None
First class merchandise
I was a previous Microtech owner and would have purchased the Select Fire Automatic model if it had been possible. Microtech is probably the best knife available anywhere!

Cons: Overall Quality, None
I would have expected more
Got my knife and the blade had an amazing amount of side to side play. It uses a special pivot screw, so you would think they would check that sort of thing. After contacting Microtech, the graciously offered to send me the special tool. It took a month, and when I adjusted the pivot screw, it didn't help that much. Contacted them again and they said that their company policy was to charge $15 for it to be "repaired". This was a brand new $300 knife. Sold it as a factory lemon on e-bay. It would have been a nice knife without the blade wobble, but the bad taste dealing with Microtech will keep me away from any of their products in the future.
