The L.U.D.T. (Large Underwater Demolition Team) out the side automatic knife model from Microtech has been a favorite among Spec Ops and first responders for nearly 20 years. This version features a partially serrated, drop point blade in rugged stonewash finished Bohler M390 and a grooved Tan anodized aircraft grade aluminum handle.
Brand new item direct from Microtech Knives, USA.
Blade: The shape of the LUDT is all about utility, offering just over three inches of cutting edge and a piercing pointy tip. It's great for every day slicing, slashing and penetration cuts whenever called upon. A partially serrated section tears through fibrous materials like rope and webbing. A little over an inch of notching on the crowned spine creates a welcomed thumb ramp. Built from high edge retention and corrosion resistant Bohler M390 steel with rugged stonewash finish that hides wear well. Shaving sharp from the start and firing via a single push button actuator. Simply press the button on the front scale near the pivot to deploy the blade out the side of the handle. Press it in again and fold the blade back in to close. The action is smooth and fast.
Handle: Constructed of aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum creating lightweight dependability and hard anodized Tan. It has a slight notched finger choil below the pivot along with machined grooves and notches abound to ensure a solid grip in any environment. The LUDT is fitted with Microtech's gray proprietary hardware and pocket clip. A small black nylon lanyard is attached for added security.
Each LUDT is individually serialized and dated on the front of the blade.
M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. M390 also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid problems by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
