The 2024 LUDT Gen III is the pinnacle of Microtech’s legacy and a refined iteration of the renowned Underwater Demolition Team knife. Originating in the mid-1990s, the LUDT swiftly ascended to become one of Microtech’s fastest-selling knives in history. After a temporary hiatus from Microtech’s lineup, we are delighted to announce the resurgence of this iconic blade.

The LUDT showcases a meticulously crafted blade featuring a crowned spine, thumb ramp jimping, a reinforced tip, and now a blood groove/fuller, ensuring unparalleled penetration effectiveness without compromising on structural integrity. The finish on the blade not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also contributes to its exceptional durability. The handle, with 3M Traction Tape seamlessly integrated into the design, elevates this knife to the status of an ideal everyday carry (EDC) folder.

Every detail, from the actuation button to the pocket clip, has been refined and improved, ensuring a harmonious and sophisticated overall appearance. The handle, precision-machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, not only imparts robustness but also keeps the knife’s weight minimal. With its ergonomic design and lightning-fast deployment, the LUDT stands as an exemplar of excellence in an all-encompassing blade.
