    I've apparently been bitten by the OTF bug. I just picked up this Microtech UTX-85 II signature series today. I'd been looking for one slightly smaller than the Ultratech and with a tanto blade.

    Ok that or the ultratech?

    For EDC, the UTX-85II is ~0.5" shorter retracted and definitely sits better in a pocket, IMO. The texture on the handle is a nice feature as well. The Ultratech is not massive, but the additional half inch does make a difference in pocket.

    This one is likely staying with me.

    AEB-L at 62 RC. 0.08" stock ground down to a laser fine edge.
    4" blade and 8" OAL.
    Bloodwood handle with 416 stainless steel bolsters and pins.

    Burned $275 worth of Hilton points a couple of years ago to acquire this Bastinelli Raptor off Amazon. Just got it back from Frederick Edgeworks the other day, who put a fresh edge on it and cleaned it up for $4.
