Perfect EDC!!!

1 year ago

I love this knife! Razor-sharp, double-edged blade. Very discreet. Will fit in your shirt pocket, ready to fire quickly with the dependable Microtech action! Very difficult to find this model anywhere.

Another Great Microtech Product

1 year ago

This UTX-70 does not disappoint. I have other Microtechs to include UTX-85s and Ultratech. This little tool is so light it feels like one of these classic Case penknives in the hand. The deployment is crisp just like the big brothers and the fit and finish are flawless IMO. If you are looking for something small to hide in the pocket or just hang on the clip in your pocket, this read more is a great acquisition. Highly recommend!

Awesome little knife. The jade g10 looks great. Such a sleek tiny blade that you forget you are even carrying it.

Perfect place to buy!

1 year ago

I’ve been looking everywhere for a microtech utx 70. I tried microtechs website several stores near me that carry them and bladehq. I found one on here and said welp I’m either gunna get scammed or get a knife so I took a gamble. Got my knife in 2 days just as promised. I was super excited and so glad I found one. Only complaint is that I had to pay 20 bucks more then I would read more at blade hq. but it was worth it to get a knife that otherwise unavailable.

Perfect for EDC

1 year ago

Initially I was a little concerned with its size but it’s since surprised me and I find myself taking it with me more and more. Everything you could ask for from Microtech.

Great company to deal with

2 years ago

Man. Although I think the knife is a bit small the quality is outstanding, but nothing beats the top notch customer service I got as a first time buyer with DLT

if I need another knife, I’d be dumb to shop anywhere else.

Thanks y’all

The Meeting of Fun and Function

2 years ago

This is quite possibly the most Fun knife I've ever had. The blade is not just cool [ it IS cool though ] it's functional, it's a beefed up scalpel on a 2 inch blade. And that blade's in an OTF And that OTF'S a Microtech.

Lo Maximo

This is my first Mictotech and my first OTF. And what a treat it is! Fit, finish and function are excellent. Anodized aluminum handle is much easier on dress shirts, pants and coats than other handle materials. This is the ticket if you're looking for a lightweight sub 3" EDC!

Much more than a novelty

2 years ago

Im Aaron R. And Im a Microtech o holic. It has been three days since I last purchased a Microtech. This one has found its way onto my person every day since it arrived. I was afraid that it would be too small but when I held it my hand I knew that this knife and I could go places. It is very sharp and very light. Its is so light that it is fine in gym shorts or rides comfortably read more in between the buttons on a polo shirt. Today I carried it in my pocket and it took up no room and did not interfere with my big screen phone in any way. Although it is small, it is large enough that it isnt awkward to retrieve and open like some small knives can be. If you are a fan of knives such as the Kershaw Launch 4, Boker Mini Kalishnikov, or Spyderco Dragonfly, Im sure you will love this knife as much as I do.

Perfect EDC work horse

2 years ago

I personally have several microtech knives, and love them all. The few times I have needed service on a knife, they have it repaired and back to me in less than a week. Out of all my knives, my UTX 70s get the most use. Pretty much all day every day this litte knife does great. This new design is awesome, with a better contour handle for grip, and its some how a lighter weight. read more I would reccommend this little guy to anyone looking to try microtech for the first time, as this is small enough to not be seen as aggresive for work use, and it is still absolutely rock solid and wont let you down.


Amazing, but pricey

2 years ago

This is a perfect little EDC. Great for disappearing in your pocket or carrying on the waistband of a pair of shorts. Fires very strong, and good quality all around. Nice thin blade, although I wish the grind was a tad thinner. I also like that it is made in the USA. Super great fidget factor. It also just looks great.

Why 4 stars? $240 (by time you pay for taxes and shipping) read more is terribly expensive for what you get IMO, and there are countless other folders where you would get better value for your money in the ~$200 price range. That said, I'm certainly not returning mine. If you compare it to other $200+ folders you may be disappointed, but it's pretty amazing nonetheless.

I kinda wish there was a UTX 77.5. That would be perfect.

If you're on the fence about one of these, try picking up a Firecracker OTF first to see if you like the size/feel of an OTF. Just don't buy a knockoff please.

Everything I Wanted In A Compact OTF

3 years ago

First off, the fit and finish on this is absolutely impressive; especially on a small knife and a blade with a complex grind. The bevels and grind are 100% flawless.

This thing is small and super light but does not feel cheap or like a toy at all.

Blade fires and retracts hard and fast with good lockup.

Yes, it is small, but it's everything I wanted in an OTF. read more It's basically the exact same size as my Victorinox Cadet and that's what I was hoping for.

Works great as an every day small task knife just like my Cadet, but with the added functional utility of super easy one-handed operation.

It's kind of amazing that a small pocket knife like this can feel so high quality but it really does.

Little star

The knife is tiny, at first I was a little shocked on how small it actually was..I thought it was too small. Then I carried it for awhile and realized how great it actually was! Yes its small but thats kind of the beauty of it! Ill probably get the next size up too.

Best Microtech Ever?

3 years ago

This could just be my most favorite Microtech ever. The second I opened it my wife said she wanted one. This thing is too cool and very useful. It disappears in the pocket and has stood up to every EDC task I've put it through. Would highly recommend this knife!

Hudnell C.

Great lightweight EDC!

3 years ago

All the snappy goodness of a Microtech OTF in a tiny, lightweight package. The quality is right on point with my UTX-85. It disappears in your pocket and came absolutely razor sharp. Grab one while you can!

Love my baby Microtech

4 years ago

I love this compact sizing of the Ultratech, what I call my baby Ultratech. This UTX-70 has a very smooth action on it that locks up tight!! Ive always loved these compact sized OTFs and am so glad Microtech has made them available again. Also another very smooth transaction from Blade HQ. These guys really treat a customer right!!! Once again, thank you Microtech for making such read more a precision work of art and thank you Blade HQ for being such a great retailer to work with!!

I purchased this for my wife. Her words when she opened the box and fired the knife " I LOVE IT" and that really sums it up. The size is great for my wife, and for a "gentleman's knife" in dress pants this would be great. Beautiful blade and razor sharp. Very thin but doesn't feel cheap at all. This is a knife you can USE.
