The UTX-70 (15% smaller than the UTX-85) is a dual action mini out the front automatic knife from Microtech that’s one of the most friendly for everyday carry. The diminutive size is perfect for watch pocket or even key ring carry. This Signature Series version has a contoured, black anodized aluminum frame, Carbon Fiber top, ringed hardware and double edge Damascus blade.
Brand new directly from Microtech Knives, USA.
Blade: Made from striking, pattern welded Damascus the double edge blade has two razor sharp plain cutting edges. The sub-2.5 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: A smooth, black anodized 6061-T6 aluminum frame and a handsome carbon fiber top have ergonomic, contoured edges creating a comfortable in-hand feel and smooth transition in and out of your pocket. As the UTX-70 is much smaller and thinner jimping has been left off for a cleaner look making it an excellent choice for a Gentleman’s OTF automatic. Handle construction is completed with Microtech’s ringed proprietary hardware, glass breaker end and pocket clip with individual serial number/date of production, Talon logo and Signature.
Carries via a right hand, tip-down, stainless steel deep carry clip.
Damascus: A high quality, pattern welded Damascus consists of multiple types of steel that are forge welded and folded or twisted to create unique patterns. These patterns are highlighted through acid etching delivering a striking contrast. Cutting performance will be similar to the steels used in the process.
