An Orange OTF For Halloween



Halloween is just around the corner.  Are you ready?  You’ve carved pumpkins, decorated, what else is there to do?  Well, has your knife gotten into the Halloween spirit?   Halloween just wouldn’t be Halloween without the Color Orange.  It’s a staple.  Like green and red for Christmas.  So, in keeping with the Holiday.  Here are some of our favorite picks for the best orange OTF for Halloween.

First off we have the Microtech Ultratech Tri-Tip in orange.  Microtech is one of the leading names in OTF knives right now.  You never need an excuse to get yourself a new Microtech.  But, if you do, why not use Halloween?  Grab your Ultratech in orange and really show your Halloween spirit.  The black accents really take home that Halloween feeling.  Clip this bad boy on your pocket when you take the kids trick-r-treating!


Next we have the Piranha Excalibur OTF orange.  Once again we have an awesome reliable knife in Orange.  One of our favorite aspects of this knife is the handle.   It is a marbled black and orange combo.  Nothing says Halloween quite like a black and orange color combo.  Much like the Microtech, this is a reliable knife you can use year-round, not just on the 31st of October.


Lastly, we have the Microtech Orange Halo V.  I know, it may not be fair to include 2 Microtechs on the same list.  But when a company is consistently pumping out reliable knives in tons of different colors, it’s bound to happen.  The Halo V is a pretty big OTF.  To ensure you get the best OTF possible, Microtech has the blade come all the way up to the exit point, just about poking out!!   It’s a phenomenal knife in any color!


So whether you are just looking for an excuse to get a new OTF, or you really do want to get into that Halloween spirit, there are pages of options for you.  Head over and pick out your Ideal orange OTF.

What will you be carrying this Halloween?  Have a suggestion?  Let us know in the comments below.  We hope you have a very Happy Halloween!

Red Microtech Troodon


  It’s been a while, but the red Troodons are back in stock at Blade HQ! It seems that blade-deployment speed is typically the focus for OTF knives—as it should be—but comfort and practicality are often overlooked. Microtech, however, has managed to capture functionality, comfort, … Continue reading

Microtech Out-the-Front Knives: The Ultratechs

Microtech Knives is known for their spring assisted out-the-front (OTF) knives. The Halo V’s , out-the-front Troodons, Combat Troodons, and the Microtech Nemesis‘s to name a few of their widely known OTF knives. Need to decide which Microtech OTF is the right size for you, check out this Microtech OTF Size Comparison Chart at the bottom of this post.

As per the heading of this post, I will be talking about the Microtech Ultratech.

The Ultratech is a great OTF! It’s large enough to be considered a man’s knife, but small enough to fit comfortably in your pocket (tho I recommend keeping it in its carrying pouch for a safer carry). With the blade deployed, the length of this knife is 8.5″. Closed, it measures at about 4.7″. The blade length is 3.4″ and weighs only 3.5 oz. The blade is made of S35-VN or 154CM stainless steel (various finishes) with a 6061-T6 anodized aluminum handle. The blade (plain, serrated, or partially serrated) comes in various styles: double-edge bayonet, dagger, tanto or drop point. The MT Ultratech features a pocket clip, glass breaker and all hardware is made of stainless steel (black or satin finish depending on the color of the blade itself). The Microtech Ultratech OTF fires in and out automatically by sliding the firing button found on the  knife’s right side. The deployment action on these is exceptional. In my honest opinion, I think the Ultratech series is the best OTF bang for the buck.
