Click Here for Current UTX 70 Knives in Stock
Microtech Knives is known for their automatic OTF (out the front) knives so it should come as no surprise that they offered the smallest OTF automatic knife on the market when it was first introduced years ago called the UTX-70. The Microtech UTX 70 is named after the Microtech Ultratech but at 70% the size, hence the UT-X70.
It is a very compact OTF knife that literally fits in the palm of your hand. The above pic is my hand and I have small hands so you can see it is not very big. I love to EDC (everyday carry) this knife because I never know it is in my pocket. It is slim, lightweight and very unassuming. Hell half the time when I pull it out people say, what is that?
To start with, the Microtech UTX70 features an anodized 6061 T6 aluminum handle (red, blue, black, green) that measures just over 3 inches long (3.22") and features an automatic double action "thumb slide" for one touch rapid blade deployment and retraction.
The UTX 70 has bead blast finished hardware, lanyard hole and a tip down right hand carry pocket clip. Serial number and date of manufacture are also listed on the UTX 70 handle.
The Microtech UTX70 blade measures 2.4" in length and comes in a single (S/E) or double (D/E) edge blade that can be standard or serrated. The blade is made from Elmax stainless steel available in bead blast, satin, black and stonewash finish. The blade styles vary as well including drop point, tanto and dagger. The UTX-70 initially came with an Elmax steel blade but Microtech has since fitted it with an S35VN.
The UTX-70 has an internal spring makeup that allows the blade to remain "at rest" until it is fired which allows the spring to resist early wear and last much longer than most.
