Welcome to the microtech addiction. Buy some lighter fluid (for cleaning/lubricating) and if you don't have an air compressor buy a case of keyboard dusting cans. Pocket lint is not your friend when it comes to OTF knife reliability.

I carried a ultratech for a while and while the cool factor was way up there, it just wasnít practical as a EDC for me. They need to be kept ultra clean for reliability and as mentioned pocket lint alone is itís worst enemy.
I switched to a benchmade afo 2 and that thing has seen the worst, on duty and off. Quick shot of otis dry lube every once in a while and it fires hard.

Iím not knocking the UT one bit, you may sit there for hours firing and retracting it because itís so satisfying. Hell it even made opening bills from envelopes not so bad! I wish I still had mine but some dirtbag carpet guy my wife let do a estimate decided he needed it more than I did.

REM oil works great for cleaning as well. If you use it to cut tape or open packaging, make sure it is clean before closing. It should come with a nice coozie as well��

Welcome to the auto knife addiction support forum. They seem to multiply rapidly. Now check out Heretic, Guardian Tactical, Protech, and Piranha for starters.

Rem oil is what Microtech recommends for lubrication.

I never used remoil since I already have napthalene on the shelf for Jewell trigger cleaning/lubricating. Kroil works great but the smell is a dead giveaway if left on the knife when you carry it.
