Released in 2023, the MSI (Microtech Standard Issue) is Microtech’s first knife to feature its fantastic RAM-LOK technology. This tough take on the crossbar lock features Microtech’s signature step pattern made famous by the actuation switches on the Ultratech series. The large blade cutout gives ample room for reverse middle finger flicks as well as standard slow-roll thumb opening with or without gloves. If neither of those is your preference, then simply pull down on the RAM-LOK and the blade flies open with a simple wrist flick. The injection molded handles are smooth and slightly tacky, providing great grip potential in both standard and reverse grips. Rugged, durable, extremely high-value, and made in the USA; we know that the MSI is going to quickly become a fan favorite among all members of the knife community.
