As the pioneer of Microtech’s folding knife line, the U.D.T. has evolved to be an exceptional combination of form and function. The first prototype models featured rubber Kraton inlays and were available in small, medium and large sizes. These models were later consolidated to a single size, featuring a grooved, contoured aluminum handle with jimping along the top of the handle, that carries onto the spine of the blade. The L.U.D.T. boasts an explosive deployment mechanism, not commonly found in a knife of this size. The UDT (Underwater Demolition Team) knife was introduced by Anthony Marfione over 20 years ago. This is the larger version or LUDT in his line of UDT automatic knives. The 3.4 inch blade is perfect for EDC use. All hardware is stainless steel including pocket clip.

    MICROTECH LUDT AUTOMATIC FOLDING KNIFE

    I've only had mu LUDT for a short time but I can tell it's built like a brick house. I'm going to enjoy the many years of use. Also, EKnives had my product to me promptly. Will definitely do business with EK again.

    Great Knife

    This knife is a departure from my usual knife purchases and I was a little skeptical whether I was making the right decision or not. I don't typically carry automatic knives and serrated/partially serrated blades are usually not my thing either. I have a few other Microtechs: an Ultratech (my only other auto) and a Socom Elite manual. Love both those knives and that helped ease my worries mentioned about about the LUDT. First of all, the automatic aspect of this knife. The first time that I hit that button and deployed the blade I was a little shocked. It launches with authority! You need to have a decent grip because it fires the blade out aggressively, and I have to admit, I like it. I see more autos in my future! I am also learning to love the partially serrated blade as well. The blade has enough straight edge to do any slicing tasks that I have encountered so far and though I've used the serrated section very little I believe that it is large enough to handle tasks where serrations excel such as cutting rope, fabric, foliage, etc. The M390 steel blade came razor sharp out of the box. Typical Microtech attention to detail and quality. The knife now has a place in my EDC rotation and I already have my eye on a few other LUDT configurations. Recommended.
