OUR PROCESS

Learn about the materials, design process, and manufacturing of MICROTECH® KNIVES

THE DESIGN

It all began with a sketch on a piece of paper over 25 years ago. The process of our knives still starts with several initial mock-ups before approval. After the initial drawing concept, we move to our engineering department for precise 3D models with flawless specifications. Our engineering team works hard to assure the production of the knife runs as smooth as possible.

THE MATERIALS

Our pride runs deep in the materials we choose to deliver a perfect knife. Over the years we have used various top-shelf materials for our prototype, custom, and core products. We never sacrifice quality for cost. We use nothing but the highest rated premium metals, carbon fiber, aluminum, plastics, and other project-specific materials. We now boast 100% American built in-house. Our passion is in the American stories behind each material made.

CARPENTER
CTS-204P

For 2020, one of our main go to steels is Carpenter CTS-204P. American-made CTS-204P is the close equivalent to Bohler- Uddeholm M390.  CTS-204P is an ultra premium steel manufactured in Philadelphia, PA. We carefully chose this steel to complete our mission of producing a 100% American made masterpiece for the majority of our knives.,

THE CREATION

After the materials are selected, we start the creation process through assembly by hard working Americans.  Each knife is built by hand after it leaves the machining process. Day by day, we improve our methods and make sure each product leaves the factory with the very best quality. Moving forward in 2020, we have strengthened our quality control to strive towards excellent customer experience.
