Just snagged a new clip for the Banana Assassin, crap, I should get one for my buddy.

I'd love to see a sprint Bare Knuckle.

Well the utx70 and 85 are just smaller Ultratechs, the number references the percentage of the original. So 70 percent, and 85 percent respectively. Making them, pretty tiny.

What hand size do you have?

The Troodon is a bit more expensive, but its definitely not "Just get an ultratech". I wish I got a troodon instead of the ultratech i currently have. A troodon is smaller than an ultratech though in length, but has a bit more meat to hold onto.

Favorite colors?

I can hunt through my normal microtech sources for something that fits your bill perfect.

When it comes to all the choices (blade styles, colors, etc) I find that you shouldn't compromise. Pull the trigger on the one you really want, or wait until it pops up.
I missed this post somehow... I wear a medium in Mechanix gloves.

The merlot is really growing on me the more I look at it, especially with the black coated blade and hardware. Other colors that I am seeing of theirs that look good as well would be that dark tan (Burnt Bronze is an awesome color) that you picked up or another similar understated color. The bronzed finish on the blade/hardware also looks pretty good (and looks good with the Merlot from what I have seen in images).

Also, the bayonet grind is growing on me a little. Unfortunately, that combination doesn't appear to exist outside of the DLC Tactical version, lol.

Lol, well they are released in random batches. Gotta figure out what you want and snag it, or hawk for it.

The merlot is some hot **** though, i'd snag it before its gone. This is the first time i've seen that color. It may not be back around any time soon.

Lmk if you want me hawking for your "precious".

By all means! I've been poking around some and saw where Southern Edges had the Dirac in Merlot in stock (at the moment).
So what are the configs you are looking for specifically? Lol

I think I've landed on the Merlot Dirac (model 225-1MR). I wear looser jeans for work, so I'm not as concerned about the firing button being on top (looks like it is still less than 0.5" tall from looking at the specs, which is thinner than my ZT, lol).

I say this and once I buy something, they'll drop a bayonet Ultratech in maroon. 🤣

Lmfao! Yeah I havnt seen a bayonet in merlot. Which means it may be next batch. It'd be a premium config for sure.

If you snag the Dirac, then search is over. Unless your knife budget doubled, lmfao

Oh, forgot to mention. They have black coated, then they have black DLC, the later being the premium coating. Just something to keep in mind. All the little details that make each microtech a bit special.

Well, after you switch it to tip up carry, unless you are some kind of savage.

Looking real good, mine should be here like tomorrow. No ETA on the pocket clip yet, so who knows.

I had to run to a chiropractor appointment, so it is getting switched around as soon as I get back home, lol
