When the Microtech Exocet was released last year, they started with standard colors – black, blue, and red. It was wildly successful and now you can get them in just about any color, and with just about any finish you can imagine. These pocket friendly out-the-fronts really perk up just about any pocket dump.
The Exocet features anodized 6061-T6 Aluminum handles that’s machined for a good grip and a great look. It’s a California legal, doubled-edged, dual action OTF dagger with a blade length of 1.98” and a blade thickness of 0.06”. It’s available in all three of Microtech’s finishes, including the ever-popular Apocalyptic finish.
Let’s talk about steel for just a quick moment. Microtech does a very interesting and clever thing. They simply announce the steels they’re using for that year, and any model could be released at any time in any one of those steels. This year, the steels are CTS-204P, XHP, Bohler M390, and Elmax. They’re all high-end, super premium steels and you really can’t go wrong with any of them.
It has a wide, ambidextrous tip-down pocket clip that doubles as a money clip and the fit is snug enough to be secure without being difficult. The handle thickness is only 0.35” so it’s incredibly sleek and slim. With a closed length of 3.875” and weighing a mere 2.75 ounces it practically disappears in your pocket. It’s currently available in nine different colors and with a variety of finishes with more being added almost daily.
