Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Handle Material
Good enough for Hollywood but how about the sandbox?
This knife was purchased solely for self defense. I carry it in my weak side pants pocket when I have dropped my kit with my primary fixed blade on it. It deploys quickly and the blade seems robust enough for any encounter. I selected the Microtech over others because of the quality and simplicity of design. In that sense it has not disappointed in the least. The action is stiff enough that I am not at all concerned about the blade deploying in my pocket. The only knock against it (and all OTFs) is that the action is exposed to gunk and dust, and cleaning it out may be quite interesting.
