MT1221: 122-1 Ultratech
The Ultratech, will forever set the standard for all out-the-front knives. Ultratech is Microtech’s original dual action out-the-front knife, and has been the foundation of their entire OTF line. Over the years, it has gone through several modifications, each time becoming more efficient and reliable. This version has the improved contoured handle with texturing thumb slide for more positive purchase. The Ultratech's spring remains in an "at rest" position at all times except when deployed. This ensures that the compressed spring will not become fatigued, assuring users that when the knife is fired, it will operate effectively. Ultratech can take many different forms; it can be topped with a standard machined aluminum top or a piece of carbon fiber. The Ultratech's light weight, one handed open and close action, slim shape, and scalpel sharp blade make it a one of a kind knife, only available through Microtech. This knife has proven time and again that it can withstand any obstacle. Only time will tell what the next step will be for the Ultratech series.

Most Popular Microtech OTF
I have owned several of the Ultratech models over the years and cannot say enough about how great of a knife they are! I have been collecting Microtech knives since 2001 and can say firsthand that the quality of every one of these knives is second to none! Microtech is quickly approaching the 100,000 serial number mark on the Ultratech model which in itself says something. They have made more and sold more of this model over any other model they have ever put out not to mention it’s there most popular OTF. And in my honest opinion I think a lot of the reason for this is the price alone. This model is very modestly priced in comparison to most all their other models they offer. I bought my very first Ultratech back in 2001 and it had the exact same blade style as this current one being the D/E black blade but back then they cost $500.00 so the price has dropped significantly since those days for this particular model. This hasn’t been the case on other models like – The Halo, Nemesis, Troodon, Combat Troodon, Cypher, and so on. The fit and finish on these knives are second to none with an extremely smooth action and very tight lock up! I can’t say enough about the fine craftsmanship that shows in each and every one of them!! Also Microtech offers a lifetime guarantee on all their knives which actually I had to use once many years ago. The mainspring on one of my Ultratechs back then broke and so I sent it back to them and they fixed it with no issues whatsoever and the total turnaround time was around 9-10 days. I couldn’t ask for any better service than that. So needless to say I am a very firm believer in the Microtech brand and would highly recommend any Microtech knife to anyone interested in buying a high quality piece of precision craftsmanship that will serve them long and well!!

Best OTF Knife I ever owned!
Excellent Knife that keeps a very sharp edge. The automatic mechanism is extremely smooth. I bought this knife based on a friend that has one. His was 5 yrs old. The OTF mechanism and blade is still as smooth, tight as the one I just bought. Well worth the money I. I highly recommend this OTF from Microtech. I'm so impressed, I ordered another one.
