  1. This is my second order from Eknives.com. The first one was from my wife and she ordered my first MicroTech Ultratech D/E OTF for my birthday several years ago. She raved about them back then and then I was able to order a new MicroTech UTX-85 OTF Spartan blade in OD Green. NO ONE else had these or this model. Every site that I went to was out of stock, ecvept Eknives. I’ve bought from Blade Ops, Blade HQ and Arizonz Customs to name a few plus lots more and all of them were out of stock. I’ve been wanting this model for years and my wife said for my birthday this year I could grab one. Then she told me to go to Eknives and BAM!!! The UTX-85 is in my hand. Clayton was great to work with. I couldn’t find my receipt and then I thought I lost my order and Clayton was on top of it!! Customer Service is huge in my book and Clayton set the standard. Eknives will be my go to knife store. He quickly responded to my emails and was there in my time of panic. Thanks Clayton, your a stand up guy and run a class organization, keep it up!! I’m putting the word out to my friends and colleagues about Eknives. Blade Ops & Blade HQ, look out, Eknives has you beat!!!
