The Ultratech without question has been Microtech's flagship out the front auto knife since its induction in 1999. Recently it has gone through an additional aesthetic redesign after the overwhelming success and praise of the traditional styling. While the dimensions of the Ultratech remain unchanged, the handle has been stripped back down to its original roots--now offering a smooth contoured chassis, however still boasting the tri-angle hardware, a redesigned thumb slide and the glass breaker that now includes a press fitted ball bearing for a more comfortable, but still functional, user experience. Each Microtech OTF knife has extremely sophisticated internal mechanisms which improve the overall operational functionality and reliability. This model features a contoured violet anodized handle complete with standard bead blasted hardware and an integrated glass breaker function along with a dagger style blade in a stonewash finish. Made in the USA.

Microtech perfection as usual.
Best B'day present ever for her.
Looks better IN PERSON than in pix on the web.
Microtech has reduced the force required to activate and retract the knife. Same solid lockup and speed.
The 'High' Violet Color is way cooler in person than in photos and the finish wears surprisingly well.
Microtech has also slightly reduced the spring tension so that the knife is easier to activate and return to the frame. Blade is still solid. Would not hesitate to carry for self defense.
Purchased as a Gift for a GF and it is her new EDC.
