Limited Edition: Blackwater Microtech Ultratech Out-The-Front Knife

    Blackwater Ammunition are releasing a limited edition Microtech Ultratech Out-The-Front knife.

    The knife comes with Blackwater’s signature camouflage & logo engraved over the entire handle, then finished in a matte black coating. Judging by the picture, it looks like a surface finish where you can play with the reflection of the light over the knife for a while.

    Below: It is difficult to see the branding on the picture below, it comes out much better in the picture above.

    Here is how Blackwater describes “their” knife:

    We partnered with one of the best knife makers on the planet, Microtech Knives… if you haven’t heard of them just ask John Wick.

    As the flagship model of the Microtech® O.T.F. lineup, the Ultratech® sets the standard for Out-The-Front technology. Proprietary design allows the firing spring to be at rest in both the open and closed positions, drastically reducing wear on the internal firing mechanisms.

    The contoured chassis handle provides a lighter and more ergonomic feel and comes with our signature Blackwater camo & logo deeply engraved over the entire handle, then finished in a matte black coating.

    This limited edition knife comes serialized – at this time we cannot guarantee and specific serial number.

    A long time ago, in 2011, they did Mossberg Blackwater branded shotguns.

    The price is $374.95. I don’t know if this knife will only be sold via Blackwater, or if it will also be available through the normal Microtech dealer network.

    As the flagship model of the Microtech® O.T.F. lineup, the Ultratech® sets the standard for Out-The-Front technology. Proprietary design allows the firing spring to be at rest in both the open and closed positions, drastically reducing wear on the internal firing mechanisms. The contoured chassis handle provides a lighter and more ergonomic feel and comes in a smooth, flat finish.

    What do you think of the Blackwater Microtech Ultratech Out The Front knife? Is it something you would consider getting? Would you use it for your collection or EDC?

    Below: One of my own Ultratechs, with a double serrated blade. Great for cutting ropes and bread, lots of bread.

    I have “a fewMicrotech knives, but haven’t decided if I should get this one or not. If it’s not available via their normal dealers I would probably skip it.
