Blackwater X Microtech Collab Reveal

Microtech is known for our ground-breaking collabs with premier, high profile knifemakers the world over. This time, we are adding our first project outside of the knife industry with Blackwater USA to our impressive roster. If you are in the gun community, you’ve heard of Blackwater USA. Formed in 1997 by Erik Prince, an ex-Navy Seal officer, Blackwater was created to provide training support to military and law enforcement organizations. Blackwater quickly became one of the world’s largest private security companies.
Branching out into the ammunition industry, Blackwater makes outstanding ammunition in a variety of calibers.

After meeting at the NRA 2019 show, talk of a collaboration began. Blackwater traveled to our headquarters near Asheville, North Carolina to discuss making a knife branded with the Blackwater logo and a unique design representing their signature camo. We are enthusiastic about our first collaboration within the firearm industry.

It is our honor to announce the exclusive Blackwater X Microtech OTF Ultratech. This collaborated piece has a deep laser etched handle featuring Microtech and Blackwater logos, as well as a serialized blade. This knife is one for the books– and for your EDC or collection.

The Blackwater X Microtech OTF Ultratech uses CTS 204 P blade steel and 6061 T6 handle material. Blade length is 3.35″ and comes out to 8.36″ full length, weighing in at 3.5 oz. Black blade and hardware give it a sleek, sturdy finish.

This pioneer American-made knife will be available here for a limited time. Check the website for current availability.
