Ultratech Warhound Signature Red Aluminium, Stonewashed is a full-size Ultratech OTF (Out The Front) automatic knife from the Signature Series line. Equipped with a hell of a fast mechanism that extends a razor-sharp blade. 100% made and assembled in the USA. Designed by Anthony Marfione, knifemaker and owner of Microtech Knives.
Ultratech OTF Line - Microtech's flagship model in the OTF line, which set the standard for all Out The Front knives. Ultratech's proprietary trigger spring design, which remains in the "resting" position at all times, except when used. This prevents the spring from fatigue, reducing wear and tear on the internal trigger mechanisms which ensures that the knife will always function effectively. The light weight, one-handed opening and closing capability, slim Handle shape and sharp blade make it a one-of-a-kind knife, available only from Microtech.
Signature Series - an elite line of Microtech products designed for buyers who are looking for a more exclusive touch to the much-loved Core Series production models (logo with claws on the knife). Top-quality materials and finishes are often used in the production of Signature Series knives. The line also includes themed knives such as Bounty Hunter, Memento Mori and Molon Labe. A distinctive feature is the marking with the dagger logo on the Handle and Anthony Marfione's signature on the clip.
Blade - machine ground Wharncliffe type, sharpened on one side. Aggressive jimping (notches) on the back, a long grain line and a series of holes under it. Finished with a scratch-masking Stonewashed finish. The blade was brought out with a high flat grind (Flat Grind), providing excellent cutting properties. This gives the knife excellent piercing properties while maintaining its strength. The strong mechanism of extending/retracting the blade with the help of the moled Thumb Slide, a stepped slide under the thumb, requires for safety the application of a specific force to overcome the resistance of the spring. The method of opening provides seamless opening for both right and left-handed people.
Handle - made with excellent precision in 3D technology on CNC milling machines, from red anodized 6061-T6 aluminium. The surface texture of the Handle makes the knife non-slip in the hand during use. There are notches (jimping) on the back and bottom of the handle for a more secure grip. The slim profile and milled two-position (right/left) solid deep-carry clip allow the knife to be carried discreetly in the pocket, in tip-down (blade tip down) position. The clip bears Anthony Marfione's signature, Microtech logo, serial number and production date. The Handle is finished with a glass striker, a solid steel triangle, into which a tungsten carbide ball has been pressed. It also features a hole for interweaving a decorative cord.
