The UTX-85 Spartan (15% smaller than an Ultratech or 85% the size of one) dual action out the front automatic knife from Microtech makes an even friendlier every day carry option. This version has a Merlot anodized, contoured handle, black hardware and a plain edge, black coated M390 Double Edge blade in a Gladius profile.

Brand new, direct from Microtech Knives, USA.

Blade: Made from high performance, Bohler M390 stainless steel the Gladius profile blade is equipped with a black, poyl-ceramic, Cerakote coated finish and two razor sharp, plain cutting edges. The blade has a stronger tip compared to the standard dagger profile, similar to a Tanto while the Cerakote finish is durable, non-reflective and corrosion resistant. Built with a double action mechanism the blade is fast and simple to operate. Simply move the thumb slide up to deploy and down to retract. An internal spring remains at rest in both the open and closed position to reduce wear.

Handle: Smooth, Merlot hard anodized 6061-T6 aluminum has improved contoured edges creating not only a comfortable feel in-hand but a smooth transition in and out of your pocket. There are several areas of machine-grooved texturing around the outsides aiding in grip. Lighter and more ergonomic, the handles are easy on the hands and eyes. Construction is completed with Microtech's proprietary Black hardware, glass breaker end and pocket clip with individual serial number, date of production and logo.

Bohler 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.
